About me and my therapy practice

Considering counselling is a brave and perhaps daunting or confusing thing to do.  Counselling is not easy.  Choosing a counsellor is not easy.  I appreciate that telling me your story is a big deal.  But I have also told MY story to a therapist.....

My extremely positive experience as a client is what has drawn me to become a counsellor.  My experience as a client informs my understanding and accepting approach to being alongside you in sessions as your counsellor/therapist.

Men, Women, Couples, Children & will have your individual reason for reading this profile.  Perhaps

Questioning something in your life or even just “a feeling or an anxiety or a low mood” or something else known only to you might be leading you to these profiles. Sometimes getting along with people and simply existing in the world is hard. Perhaps your head is telling you one thing but you have a feeling or a sense that all is not well overall. You may have an idea why or you may not be sure. Maybe your family history or big events from the past are still affecting you. Maybe parenting or work is a struggle. Working out a way for you to face the future might be tricky. If you are looking for Counselling in Oxford please keep reading

I’m not sure….

Talking about things together, Counselling (also known as Therapy) can help you to work out what is going on, why it’s happening and what you can do about it to sort things out and feel more comfortable. It can help you to realise what can be changed and what needs to be accepted

What is on offer?

I offer patience and understanding, in a confidential safe secure environment. Each person is an individual. We can work on a specific issue, ranging from short term work on a specific problem to longer term exploring wider issues, at a pace that is guided by you.

Practice description

Working with Couples

Being in Relationships is the most difficult thing you will ever do and its the thing we have the least training in. So the gap between expections (fairy tales and Hollywood) and Reality (Work, effort, struggle, ups and downs, good and bad) is huge.

I follow the Emotionally Focussed Model of Couples Counselling. (EFT)

A key part of this process is understanding “The Cycle” or “Pattern” or “Dance” that is co-created by you both. “The Cycle” is the default/habitual pattern the relationship/both of you fall into when under pressure (when your connection to each other is under threat). “The Cycle” is your joint enemy, not your partner.

The EFT is a semi structured model that includes reference to 1) our early attachments, 2) to how (sometimes unconscious) feelings drive behaviour, 3) has the idea of a withdrawer and pursuer (both are different ways of safeguarding the relationship) and is 4) more of a “Bottom Up” type of approach including the body (where feelings are as important as thoughts)

In order to do this we need to consider the following in your Relationship

How you process and understand emotion individually and together?

How you interact with each other

Patterns you are aware of and patterns you may not be aware of

Why these patterns make sense/are helpful and also how these patterns could be unhelpful/don’t make sense?

How you Communicate?

How you understand and handle vulnerability?

How you and your parents interacted and what conscious and unconscious messages you picked up as a result of this?
