Welcome to my website, for therapeutic counselling based in new Chilton, but servicing the surrounding area including Wantage, Didcot and South Oxfordshire.
Maybe it’s a need to share a trouble or worry from daily life, from relationship issues or a need to make sense of who you are from a deeper place within your being?
If stress, trauma, anxiety, depression or loss have figured in your life, you may well benefit from a place to take some time-out ... to get back on a front foot again in these challenging times.
I am a qualified counsellor and therapist registered as a full member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
I trained as a counsellor at the Psychosynthesis Trust in London, a BACP accredited post graduate diploma course, awarded by Middlesex University.
I am in private practice, working from my consulting room in New Chilton Village (Nr Harwell & Didcot) in South Oxfordshire. I offer face to face sessions or video link and I also offer walk and talk therapy sessions commencing from my home location if this is something that would interest you.
I practice as an integrative Psychosynthesis Counsellor having qualified in May 2019. I am committed to providing counselling therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
In addition to incorporating the psychosynthesis philosophy, I integrate and adapt my work to client's needs, through other modalities too.
Mind, body & feelings are heavily featured in my work while other modalities from psychoanalytic-the work of Freud & Jung for example- through to person centred therapy and other psychotherapeutic approaches such as "Gestalt" incorporating the work of Fritz Perls are considered.
I also work specifically with trauma clients based upon the teachings of Babette Rothchild.
My approach is adaptive to clinical need, while at the same time holding the ethical framework and guidelines of the BACP.
I work with individual adults (age 16+) on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling enhancement to personal life which can be lived more fully. Our contract together will determine the process and progression of the counselling and the platform we use to work with, either on a face to face basis, through video link or by phone.
I am experienced in assisting clients who have presented with issues around:
My Consulting room is located in new Chilton Village, OX11 0SZ, near the Chilton Interchange on the A34 and the Harwell Science, Technology and Innovation Campus.
This location is also within easy reach by car on the A34 from Abingdon and Oxford to the north and Newbury to the South. I am also only 15 minutes from Wallingford and 35/40 minutes from Reading to the east and Swindon to the west. Public transport links are available by train to Didcot and local buses run regularly via Didcot to Chilton.
Currently, I am offering face to face sessions for people not experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. I may ask you to wear a face covering until you are seated and take your temperature. Hand sanitizer is available for use.
