Approach & Specialist Areas:
As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I am familiar with a range of therapy styles and approaches and therefore we can work out a style of therapy that is right for you. How we work together is very much about you as an individual and what you need from me as your therapist.
Integrative Psychotherapy is less of a technique and more of a philosophy or approach. The English Oxford Dictionary defines ‘Integrative’ as meaning: “Combining two or more things to form an effective unit or system.” Integrative Psychotherapists therefore, have a holistic view of a person, seeing you as comprised of many ‘parts’ that form your ‘system’. So my interest as a therapist is in all the different aspects of your ‘self’: your feelings, thoughts, physical body and that indefinable part of self we refer to as ‘soul’ or ‘spirit’. I am also interested in how all those different aspects of your ‘self’ interact with the other people in your life, both past and present. Integrative Psychotherapy could therefore, be described as an exploration - a journey around your ‘self’.

Background:
Prior to training as a therapist, I worked as a Management Development Specialist, supporting managers and leaders in both the public and private sectors in order to improve their leadership and communication skills and get the best out of their teams.

Training & Qualifications:
I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist, having trained at the Minster Centre in London and have been working with clients for several years.

Registered Bodies:
I work for Care First, an Employee Assistance Provider as an Associate Counsellor. I am an approved Psychotherapist for Oxford University and receive student referrals from their doctoral course in Clinical Psychology. I am co-chair of Oxford Psychotherapy Society.

Amanda Tilbury
Integrative Psychotherapist


Offering: Weekly one-to-one therapy & supervision
Availability: Days - Wed, Thurs & Fri; Evening - Mon & Wed
Fees: £50 per 50 minute session
Frequency: Weekly
Location: Holton Oxford OX33 1QF



   Click Here       To contact me

Approach & Specialist Areas:
I integrate a number of different therapeutic methods/models into my practice such as Gestalt, TA and Object Relations in order to provide a therapy that can be individually tailored to the needs of the client. In addition to talking therapy I am trained to work with the arts in therapy incorporating painting/drawing/clay, sand play, music and drama, bodywork and movement. The arts give form to image, metaphor and the imagination offering the opportunity to work creatively with any given issue. This creative process provides an additional dimension to the therapeutic process for emotional expression and exploration where words alone may not feel adequate. No experience of using the arts is necessary, it is not about being “good” at art.

I am also able to work with Energy Psychology methods. They are a collection of techniques that work on clearing issues and associated feelings, thoughts and behaviours form the energy field of the client working on a client’s energy centres (Chakras) and Meridian lines (tapping - EFT). These methods can facilitate healing and are helpful in addressing trauma.

I also offer supervision to those working with adults in the helping professions and additionally offer the use of the arts in supervision as a way of working creatively with presented client material.

Background:
I worked originally as a Nurse in the NHS and then moved into working in business and other healthcare areas.

Training & Qualifications:
MA in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy
Trainings in Supervision and Energy Psychology.

Find A Therapist 3. CateP

Cate Potter
Psycho-analytic Psychotherapist


Offering: One-to-one therapy
Availability: Tue/Wed afternoon, Thurs eve,Friday
Fees: £50 (3 x £10 - £30 places)
Frequency: Weekly (Up to 3 x p.w.)
Location: Oxford



   Click Here       To contact me

Approach & Specialist Areas:
I offer a psycho-analytically informed, non-judgmental thinking space where we can explore the feelings and thoughts that are concerning you as well as ways of being, often habitual, that you may feel are no longer serving you. With a warm and adaptable approach I aim to facilitate understanding of your internal world and your individual needs together with what you would like to be different in your life. I will often focus on our experience of each other in the room and the illumination this may give about specific or more typical relational difficulties you experience as well as who I may become for you in the session.

I see the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative and supportive alliance attuned to underlying beliefs about ourselves and those around us as well as a space that at times can be charged with difficult emotions. Given trust, openness and an experience of safety in the therapeutic relationship, working through powerful feelings such as anger or sadness is essential for self -understanding and moving forward.

Historically I have worked with and been interested in those with personality difficulties that have developed as result of experiencing trauma and loss. There are many ways that trauma and loss can inhibit being able to live a fulfilling life; and, often ways of coping that are self-destructive, isolating and self-defeating develop in the absence of sound guidance and love. Understandably these ways of coping self-perpetuate into adulthood if they are not uncovered and thought about. Although the trauma and loss cannot be removed I would aim to help people come to a place where self-destructive thoughts and feelings can be experienced and processed as survivable with the hope for a more life enhancing outlook on oneself and the external world.

I also work with anxiety and depression, including bipolar disorder, as well as difficulties in adjusting to life changes such as divorce, bereavement, moving home or changing jobs. Such difficulties in adjusting may take the form of an addiction, angry outbursts, symptoms of stress and relationship breakdowns. Addressing such symptoms in therapy can help build resilience and autonomy to the changes and different stages that emerge within our lives.

Background:
I trained as a psychotherapist at the Arbours Association after a 15 year career as a mental health nurse in inner city London. Much of my training took place within the Arbour’s therapeutic communities in North London and so I have learned and favoured practicing with a strong relational style. As well as this I have always held the belief that it is possible to discover an easier and more adaptive way of living with mental distress and destructive thoughts. I am also one of the nationwide therapists working for the Clinic for Dissociative Studies in London.

Training & Qualifications:
Certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Registered Bodies:
OTS Member

Location: Oxford

Approach & Specialist Areas:
I take an integrative approach to counselling. In essence, this means that rather than subscribing to one particular modality, I prefer to identify the most useful approach with each individual client. I draw on a range of evidence based approaches and am trained to work with my clients to identify the areas that they particularly want to address and to identify the approach that they feel would be the most useful and meaningful to them. At the core of my practice is a belief in the importance of the therapeutic relationship and I count among my primary influences attachment-based psychotherapy, relational psychodynamic psychotherapy and body psychotherapy. I offer short term and long term therapy suited to your needs.

I have a particular interest in working with addiction, bereavement and relationship issues and the repercussions of boarding school.

Background:
Prior to training as a therapist, I founded and ran a successful healthcare business; eventually leaving to retrain in an area that I found more personally fulfilling. Over the last six years I have worked with Social Services in London and Oxford, providing support to vulnerable families and families in crisis and working with adults and children with varying and complex needs. Alongside this, I have worked as a counsellor for a leading addiction treatment provider as well as running my own private practice.

Training & Qualifications:
BA at Kings College London
Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (Minster Centre)

Fees: £50
Frequency: Once/twice weekly

   Click Here       To contact me

Approach & Specialist Areas:
As a psychotherapist and counsellor I am able to offer you a confidential, calm and reflective setting where we can start to make sense of the feelings and thoughts that trouble or concern you. It’s a place where you can explore your hopes and your fears, a time when you can be listened to and understood.
I practise a form of therapy called Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. This therapy is a journey of self-discovery and self-understanding that can bring relief from distress and help you make long lasting and positive change in your life. Drawing on the theories of psychoanalysis and neuroscience it explores how the problems you are struggling with in the present may connect to your past experiences; it looks at the unconscious feelings and thoughts that lie behind your present suffering.
We can find out what is going on for you through our relationship together. As we talk together we’ll start to discover and understand the unhelpful automatic reactions and unconscious patterns which may be undermining your psychological well being. Emotional wounds can be healed and a capacity for change developed. This can free you to resolve your difficulties and find fresh way of approaching life.
I find my work as a therapist exciting and I love to meet different challenges and people from diverse backgrounds. I work across a wide range of issues but also have a particular interest in working with those who struggle with anxiety, depression, identity, intimacy and connection. My background as a musician means that I have a first hand understanding of the specific issues and difficulties faced by those who work in the performing arts.

Background:
I originally trained as a classical musician and spent many years performing professionally with orchestras in the UK and abroad. Alongside this I taught both individuals and groups instructing a number of string ensembles. Having become interested in therapy through my experience in education, I trained for five years at WPF, a specialist psychodynamic therapy institute in London. I have now practised for a number of years with a range of adults treating many psychological and emotional problems.
Institutions that I have worked for include: Westminster Pastoral Foundation, Oxford Women’s Counselling Centre and Cruse Bereavement Care. I currently work in private practice and am an assessor at OWCC.

Training & Qualifications:
Post Graduate Diploma at Masters level in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice (WPF)
Certificate in Counselling Skills (WPF)
Post Graduate Alumna of The Royal College of Music
