About me and my therapy practice

I qualified as a Counsellor in 2002 and have worked in private practice 9 years. I've worked at Oxford University & Oxford Brookes counselling services, as a GP counsellor within the NHS , & in various Women's charity settings over the years.  I completed my postgraduate Psychodynamic Practice training at Oxford University & have been a registered & Accredited member of BACP since 2014. I trained as an Occupational Therapist originally, qualifying in 1997, & have 15 years experience in the NHS, specialising in Mental Health & LD community teams.

My core approach is psychodynamic which means exploring and thinking about how the past may be affecting the present. My aim is to get to the roots of ongoing issues, to try to make sense of them and work through the feelings involved. Through the therapeutic relationship you can be helped to come to terms with conflicts and difficulties, discover new insights, and increase your understanding, self acceptance and life satisfaction. You may be experiencing pain or a crisis or have felt stuck, anxious or depressed for some time. You may have past or present relationship issues that you need to talk about and explore. You may be struggling with addictive behaviours which are affecting other aspects of your life. 

I currently work with adults of working age & students or young people (over 16). I offer short term counselling or longer term psychotherapy, up to twice weekly, with individuals and groups. I aim to balance support and challenge in a way that helps you move forward with your life.

About me and my therapy practice

I've been a member of BACP since 2001 and have worked as a counsellor since then in various health, education and charity settings. My background is primarily in Health and I have 15 years experience in the NHS as a State Registered Occupational Therapist, specialising in Mental Health & Learning Disabilities in Community teams. 

I have a wide range of professional and clinical experience in the public, private and charity sectors, and have worked with a diverse range of people from different cultural, religious, & socioeconomic backgrounds. (See www.pippawatsonrees.com)

I can work briefly (to a 4-6 session model) and have done this for many years as a counsellor in GP practice, with students at Oxford University Counselling Service, and at Oxford Brookes Counselling Service. My preferred way of working is open ended/longer term psychotherapy. When I have the opportunity I also enjoy working in Psychodynamic Groups. I usually see individual clients once weekly, but also offer twice weekly where appropriate. I have my own regular Supervision and peer support, and keep up to date with regular CPD activities. I have experience of supervising junior staff.
