It can be daunting to consider counselling or therapy and confusing to know which counsellor to choose for the best. There are many different kinds of approaches and all the recent research has confirmed that the most important element in getting a good outcome from therapy is the interaction or connection between you and your therapist. It's all about who will work best for you.

Many people find the Witney Therapy Centre a convenient and attractive place to come to see a therapist, as parking is easy and it is accessible from Kidlington, Carterton, Bampton and Eynsham as well as other villages in West Oxfordshire. If you make the decision to make a booking for a first, exploratory session with me then during that first session we will explore your reasons for coming to therapy and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. It is also a chance for both of us to assess whether we feel we're suited to working together, and there is no obligation to meet again. If the decision is not to work together, then I am happy to refer you on to another therapist if you wish.
If we do decide to meet again I would suggest making an initial commitment to six sessions, at which point we can review our work and consider whether to commit to further sessions.
Oxfordshire Therapy and Self-Development Centre (OTS Centre)
As part of my professional development and services to clients, I am an active member of the Oxfordshire Therapy and Self-Development Centre (OTS Centre) community. OTS is a diverse community of counsellors and therapists from a wide range of therapeutic orientations, offering a range of psychological therapies, methods and therapy formats. We provide a one-stop access and referral point for the general public, helping you find the ‘right’ therapy and the ‘right’ therapist for you. OTS is committed to providing impartial advice, information, assessment and recommendations as well as providing psychological services appropriate to the individual, by tailoring the therapy to what you need and want (rather than prescribing a generic therapy on the basis of your diagnosed ‘symptoms’).
OTS is committed to finding affordable solutions for those unable to meet the costs associated with therapy.
Specifically, what OTS provides for clients is:
1. Choice of therapies: access to a wide range of therapeutic approaches, methods and formats.
2. Impartial information about therapy generally as well as services and practitioners available in the region.
3. Introductory and educational events as well as workshops on specific topics.
4. Referral service helping you choose the ‘right' therapeutic option for you as an individual, couple or family concerned.
5. Low-cost therapy service (with advanced trainees and recently qualified therapists).
6. Group therapy (a range of different types of groups and approaches).

I think one of the most inspiring and delightful things that has happened in April this year is the "Heads Together" charity and the London Marathon. What has been amazing is the Princes William and Harry, along with Kate have been talking about their own mental health struggles and supporting people with mental health problems in their bid to train for and complete the London Marathon. This kind of candid exploration of mental health issues is extremely welcome and moving. Read more on the Heads Together website. Click here
