Dr Seth Osborne, PsychD; UKCP; MBACP (reg.)
I am a highly-qualified and experienced 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. This was a 5 year training, and longer than the majority of others.
Because I have a wide range of relevant experience: I spent 8 years working in an NHS child and adolescent mental health team (CAMHS), and then worked for the Priory group. I now work at Magdalen College School, providing counselling for both students and staff 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. As part of my training I have also engaged in long-term psychotherapy, and so also have personal experience of what works and what doesn't.
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 making contact by either phone or email (ideally giving a bit of information about yourself) we will meet for an initial consultation in which we will discuss your situation, and decide together whether therapy with me could benefit you.
Where are you based?
My practice location in Folly Bridge, Oxford is close to the city centre. Parking is available in hour long bays on neighbouring streets, or at the Westgate or Hinksey Park carparks.
In Witney my practice location at Spinners Court off West End, has free parking and is a 10 minute walk from the town centre.
