Thank you for taking the time to visit my site. I am a fully qualified and registered counsellor/psychotherapist working one to one with adult clients. My aim is to support those I work with to make sense of the difficulties that are causing them anxiety or unhappiness, working together to bring both release and change.
Beginning counselling can sometimes feel like a big step. I am very happy to think with you about how or why to begin counselling via initial telephone or email consultation. I offer both short and long term work, and practice from discreet therapy rooms in the North Oxon, South Northants, Warwickshire borders.
Whether the causes of your problems have roots in your early life experiences, your current relationships, past traumas or difficulties in how you are managing your day to day life, my aim is to help you find meaning and understanding in how your thoughts and feelings link with your symptoms. Psychodynamic counselling is a traditional talking therapy that helps to relieve feelings of low mood and anxiety. It works by exploring the workings of your mind, challenging less adaptive ways of thinking and finding ways to make changes to the things that get in the way of you being able to lead the life you would like to.
So what do you do next?
You can complete my contact form and ask me some basic starter questions. I will do what I can to deal with any initial thoughts you might have about starting therapy.
Once you have decided if you would like to meet with me, we can organise a follow up telephone conversation to chat through your situation and if I feel I can help, we will set a date for your first visit.
I really hope I can help and on my site you will be able to find out more about what psychodynamic therapy is, who it is appropriate for and how it can get to the root of your difficulties.
