About me and my therapy practice
I'm a Relate qualified and registered practitioner with experience gained over 19 years with Relate and in private practice.
I specialise in couple/marriage relationship counselling and apply the therapeutic approach, Emotionally Focused Therapy - a model evidenced by empirical research to be effective with couples. Very often, couples find themselves in a distressing cycle of repeating behaviours, thoughts and feelings. You react to your partner's reactions and your partner reacts to your reactions and you go round and round in a never ending cycle. Communication is difficult and the resulting tensions, anger or resentments build up over time leaving you exhausted, sad or distant from one another. Understanding and unravelling your negative cycle is a first step on a journey towards an emotionally and physically fulfilling relationship.
I offer psychotherapy to individuals who need support with issues such as relationships, anxiety, depression, low self esteem bereavement, work/career, family or traumatic experiences.
I offer you a warm, safe place to talk through the issues troubling you. I practice in the Oxford and Ickford (nr Thame & Wheatley) areas. I offer appointments in the day, evenings and some Saturdays. Do contact me for an informal discussion.
