Counselling and Psychotherapy in Oxford

It can be difficult to understand psychological and emotional issues and problems, especially during difficult times.  My experience has shown me that;

  • most of the things that distress us can be understood if we can find the right place and time to discuss them  
  • even if you have suffered profound traumatic upsets, now or in the past, it is possible to improve the way you feel about them, and to improve the way you live

I am constantly updating the site to keep it relevant and informative.  There are blogs, videos and links to help you work out what you might want to do next.

I have 20 years experience of working with people, dealing with depression, low mood, anxiety states, trauma, bereavement, addictions and emotional instability.  Contact me to arrange a free telephone consultation. 

I am available via Signal, Zoom, and FaceTime or at my consulting room near Oxford. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards
