About me and my therapy practice
Hello there, I am Hannah, and I hold a postgraduate diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling (PGdip), and I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
I have experience with a range of issues including depression, self- esteem, anxiety, relationships, stress, addiction, grief and bereavement, panic attacks, chronic pain, career or life choices, family and relationship concerns, birth complications and trauma.
The Psychosynthesis style of counselling is integrative (drawing from all schools of psychology), and involves a holistic approach, appealing to those who are longing for a more authentic and truer experience of themselves.
I have a background in yoga, music, and working with children, and have always had an interest in self-discovery and healing. I am authentic, compassionate and warm in my approach.
I work online via Zoom, or in person in Oxford.
In our sessions we will explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and work together on anything you choose to bring. Counselling does require motivation, time, commitment and a certain amount of bravery to work with uncomfortable feelings, or difficult memories. It can be scary at first and it can take time to build up trust and confidence, however, we will go at your pace and I will offer a gentle holding space for you to take your time.
My first session
The first session is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other. It will be a space for you to ask me any questions you may have about me or the counselling process, and to talk about what brings you to counselling. At the end of this session, we should have a good idea as to whether we want to work together and continue with further sessions, although you may want to think it over for a few days.
Once the decision is made to continue, we will establish a ‘contract’ that we both feel comfortable with. This will make clear the confidential nature of the sessions, the cancellation policy and establish our commitment to working together in regular weekly sessions. I usually see clients once a week, at the same time, for 50 mins. If we are working online, you will need a quiet, safe and private place you can use, which has quality internet connection and the use of a headset to promote confidentiality and quality.
If you are interested in working with me, send me an email and we can arrange a time for a chat, and go from there. I look forward to hearing from you :-)
