Do you ever feel...
Counselling and psychotherapy can help with these things.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, and have been working one to one with people both short and long term for nearly 20 years. In my counselling and psychotherapy practice just outside Oxford I work with people who want to discuss things such as stress, bereavement, relationship issues or depression. In working through these issues in counselling, a more fulfilled and happier life is possible.
I also teach counselling, am a supervisor and run workshops for therapists and coaches. I co-founded and was a Director of the Banbury Counselling Academy which trains people in becoming counsellors, wrote most of the course material there and was a Programme Director and course tutor on the Diploma course.
I am accepted by the following private health insurance companies to provide therapy for their members : Bupa, Aviva, AXA, WPA, Vitality Health.
On a personal note, I really love my work. Whilst people often have painful and sometimes harrowing things to tell me, and may be in a very difficult time of their life, it is so inspiring to see them deal with it, change what they need to change and come through it, often in a much better state than before the difficulty. It is so rewarding - a privilege, really - to be alongside them as they find the courage and inspiration to deal with whatever it is that is troubling them. I also learn a lot myself and am usually immensely moved by our meetings.
I also believe in developing myself and have recently completed and qualified in a 3 year course in Pesso Boyden, a new approach to therapy which is extremely effective. I'm now one of only 8 accredited therapists in the UK using this powerful method, and I use it with individual clients and in workshops.
