Coronavirus covid-19: online psychotherapy and counselling

I am working with Oxford Health NHS to keep track of developments during the pandemic.

Making sense of psychotherapy and counselling in Oxford

It can be difficult understanding 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 want to do next.

If you would like to discuss things further, then please contact me to arrange a free telephone consultation or come to see me in my consulting room near Oxford.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for visiting

Best regards
