Approach & Specialist Areas:

Psychodynamic therapy has its foundations in acknowledging the importance of the unconscious mind – an understanding of mental functioning that now carries substantial neurological backing. While the brain may have a mind of its own, it is seen to gain individual form largely through relationships, fundamentally during infancy but continuing throughout life. An understanding of both infant and child development is considered essential for adult psychodynamic therapy. Thinking about how the past is influencing the present, and how previous relationships are colouring present experience, is an important part of the therapy. A therapist can help in the work of uncovering the causes of mental and emotional distress, and then support the client in reflecting on ways to repair and to better fulfil their potential.
People I have seen for therapy have had various named conditions – depression, generalised anxiety disorder, emotionally unstable personality disorder, eating disorders, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder etc. Also less medicalised conditions such as low self-esteem, grief, isolation, stress, difficulties with children or partner, etc. These labels of the problems we are aware of have some use, but it is the individual who needs therapy rather than the symptoms. Particularly, in working to fathom the dynamics of the symptoms, the therapy is seeking to understand each person in relation to others. I work one-to-one, in a room kept free from intrusion, either once or twice a week. Working online/remotely became necessary during 2020. Sometimes video work is appropriate, while for others using audio is more effective. This needs to be thought about carefully and negotiated individually. I believe that good therapeutic work can be done remotely but prefer to work in-person for the earlier sessions at least.

Background:
For ten years I worked in a perinatal mental health service in the NHS. This involved therapeutic work with pregnant women as well as with parents and babies. The time of a new baby is often challenging for parental mental health. This is partly because becoming a parent can powerfully re-ignite one’s own early experiences and anxieties. I have found my work with mothers and fathers from varying cultures and backgrounds, varying ages and professions, helpful in developing my understanding of emotional development and disturbance.
I was particularly employed to think with parents about their relationship with their babies and young children rather than teaching them how to parent. Disturbing and disruptive ways of parenting can roll on down through the generations unless there is time to reflect and to challenge reactions that feel instinctive but are actually learnt. For me, having the opportunity to explore and observe these first relationships added to my theoretical knowledge and provided insights into thinking about an individual’s experience of being in the world.

Fees: £90 per hour
Frequency: weekly/fortnightly
Location: OTS-Oxford Therapy Centre
Also at: The Lodge, Wallingford OX10 0DB

   Click Here       To contact me

Approach & Specialist Areas:
My approach to therapy is client-centred, compassionate, honest and collaborative, and I place great importance on the development of a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship which I believe to be the key to effective therapy. In the first few sessions, we will work together to make sense of what’s brought you into therapy, to define your goals for treatment, and to identify the most helpful and appropriate way to achieve these. Throughout the therapy, I will work with you to help you develop a better understanding of your difficulties, and to learn strategies and skills you can use to help you improve your current wellbeing and to protect yourself against similar difficulties in the future. During therapy, we will frequently review our progress to make sure things are moving in the right direction, and to discuss anything that you would like to change about the work.

My clinical practice is strongly evidence-based and I have been trained in a number of different psychotherapeutic approaches, meaning that the work will be tailored flexibly to suit your particular needs and preferences. I use a cognitive behavioural approach (CBT) in combination with other models including compassion-focused therapy, schema-focused therapy and cognitive analytic therapy.

I have a particular interest and expertise in perinatal mental health and the transition to parenthood, as well as in supporting people to recover from trauma related to pregnancy and birth.

Background:
I am a clinical psychologist and BABCP accredited cognitive behavioural psychotherapist with many experience of working therapeutically with people who are experiencing a wide range of emotional difficulties. I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and I am a British Psychological Society (BPS) Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow. I spent 13 years working for the NHS, providing a psychological service to adults with severe and complex mental health difficulties, and I established my private practice in 2016.

I have a keen interest in conducting psychological research and have held academic posts at the Universities of Sheffield and Oxford. I enjoy teaching and training and have close links with the Oxford Institute for Clinical Psychology Training.

After the birth of my first child, I trained as a doula and I have been offering birth doula support to women, couples and families in Oxfordshire since 2014.

Availability:Monday and Tuesday: daytime and evening
Fees: £50
Frequency: Weekly (short term or open ended)
Location: OTS-Oxford Therapy Centre
Also in: Cheltenham

Approach & Specialist Areas:
I believe that we all have the opportunity to live a fulfilling life but sometimes this can feel difficult especially when our inner struggles and beliefs about ourself get in the way.
I am a compassionate and down to earth therapist. I have worked with individuals with a wide variety of experiences including anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, feeling stuck in life, crises, unhelpful patterns of behaviour, struggles with family, personal or professional relationships. I also have an interest in working with individuals who have made or are experiencing major life transitions. I am always open to working with other experiences not listed here and welcome you getting in touch to discuss this.

In our sessions I will be alongside you through the process of exploring your experiences and whatever emerges whilst we do so. I don’t believe therapy is about advice from an expert or me sitting in silence whilst you struggle alone rather it’s about the two of us working together. I work integratively and relationally which means that I am flexible in the techniques I use and that I believe it’s the quality of the relationship between therapist and client which is most important in therapy; this is especially important if we are exploring aspects of yourself which you might feel uncomfortable with or feel are unacceptable to others. I always aim to respond with honesty and non-judgement.
The process of therapy can be interesting, unexpected, illuminating and always unique. The goal is to reach a deeper level of awareness about yourself; who you are and how you choose to live. I believe that our relationship with ourselves and, in turn, other people, is a deeply important factor in how we feel we can live our lives, and respond to the challenges which arise. Change, if that’s what you seek, doesn’t just mean choosing to behave differently, it can happen when we feel differently about ourselves.

Background:
I have worked to provide individual support in the higher education academic and voluntary sectors and, aside from my therapy work, have experienced the rewards and challenges of running my own business as well as undertaking research projects.

Training and Qualifications:
I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling
I am undertaking training towards a Diploma in Integrative and Relational Psychotherapy.
I take part in regular Continued Professional Development training (including Trans awareness and inclusivity, Transactional analysis, Embodiment and breathwork) and have fortnightly supervision for my work.

Frequency: Weekly
Location: OTS-Oxford Therapy Centre
Also at: OTS-Witney Therapy Centre


   Click Here       To contact me

Approach & Specialist Areas:
The psychodynamic approach to therapy focuses on helping us to identify and understand negative patterns of relating and behaving so we can begin to find better ways of coping with life's difficulties. As such, the work we do together involves thinking about what lies under the surface of thoughts, feelings and actions as a way of gaining greater self-awareness. It can involve thinking about past events and their impact on the present. Additionally, close attention is paid to the relationship between us in the counselling room as a way of throwing light on relationships in your everyday life.
Other approaches may also be integrated into the above (eg person-centred and elements of CBT) as and when appropriate, to best resolve your issues and meet your needs.

Background:
I am an experienced counsellor with practices in Witney and Oxford. I also have close links with the Oxford Women’s Counselling Centre (OWCC), initially as a counsellor and now as an assessor for the organisation. Prior to training as a counsellor I lectured in Psychology.

Training & Qualifications:
BSc(Hons) Psychology, PgDip in Counselling
