Dr Seth Osborne, UKCP; MBACP (reg.)
I am a qualified UKCP and BACP psychotherapist and counsellor who works with adults and young people aged 16+ in Oxford and Witney.
Why choose to have counselling with me?
Because I have completed a robust, in-depth training: I have a Doctorate in Psychotherapy and Counselling from Roehampton University.
Because I have a wide range of relevant experience: I spent 8 years working in an NHS child and adolescent mental health team (CAMHS). I now work in a leading independent school, providing counselling for both students and staff, and for the Priory Healthcare group, in addition to my work in private practice.
Because I am committed to my work and my professional development: I work full time as a counsellor/psychotherapist. I have regular supervision from a Consultant Psychotherapist in the NHS for my adult cases, and for my work with children, supervision with an experienced school counsellor and successful author.
Because my approach is based on a number of well-regarded theoretical models, including psychodynamics, existential-phenomenology, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), and person-centred therapy.
What are the first steps?
After initial contact by either phone or email, we will meet for an initial consultation in which we will discuss your situation, and decide together whether counselling with me could benefit you.
My practice location in Alexandra Road, Oxford is approximately 10 minutes walk from the train station and the city centre. Parking is available in hour long bays on neighbouring streets, with Waitrose nearby also offering free parking for 90 minutes.
In Witney my practice location has free parking and is a 10 minute walk from the town centre.
