What Do You Need?

  • 1-to-1 Psychotherapy or Counselling?
  • Couples Counselling?
  • Group Therapy?
  • Supervision or Professional Development Groups?

    You can either email me or phone me on 07977 126330 if you would like to discuss any of these options. Throughout the rest of this website, you will find further information about me and the different services I offer and the kind of work that I do.

    If you are looking for a psychotherapist or counsellor in Witney or the Oxfordshire area , you may already have gathered that there are many different types of counselling and psychotherapy. Below, you will find an overview of what I offer, which as it includes running OTS (Oxfordshire Therapy & Self-Development), means that I can help you to find what you need, whether it is to work with me or not.

  • Am I Right The Right Therapist For You?

    How do you decide who to see? There are an overwhelming number of different therapy options, and most experts from across the various approaches to counselling and psychotherapy now agree that the relationship you develop with your counsellor or psychotherapist is the most important aspect of the counselling or psychotherapy. Training, experience and therapeutic style will of course have an impact on that relationship. But finding the right person you can work with is key!

    If you choose to meet with me, you will find that I relate to you very much as an individual. Even though you wont be alone in the reason(s) you have for seeking a counsellor or psychotherapist, you are unique! I do not adopt a 'one-size-fits-all' approach to therapy for this reason. If we feel that you would be better seeing someone else, then I can refer you to someone who matches what you are looking for and need.

    I have practiced and supervised for over 20 years, and during this time I have developed my practice by drawing from and seeking to integrate many of the different approaches (see 'About Me').

    If we work together in counselling, psychotherapy, supervision or a group, I will endeavour to provide the best that these approaches have to offer, by drawing from a wide range of approaches and integrating them into something that suits you and is effective in your circumstances.

    Individual Therapy & Couples Counselling

    People come to see me for a whole range of different reasons. I work with both couples (heterosexual, gay, parent/child etc) and individuals. You can find further information in the Psychotherapy & Counselling and About Me sections which can help you decide if you want to contact me, or if you would like to know more about my training, practice and qualifications.

    Please email me or phone me on 07977 126330 if you have any queries.

    Therapy Groups & Workshops

    Joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Group members are almost always surprised by how rewarding the group experience can be. You can find out more about the groups that I offer on the Groups & Workshops page.

    I offer a variety of low cost psychoeducational workshops which are bite-size opportunities to explore such topics as:
  • What makes couples relationships so difficult?
  • Knowing Yourself & Being Effective
  • Taster sessions for Group Therapy

    You can find out more about the workshops on the Groups & Workshops page.

  • Supervision & Professional Development

    I offer both individual and group supervision, as well as professional development training groups. You can find out more about these options on the Supervision & Training Page.

    OTS & Witney Therapy Centre

    I also run OTS (Oxfordshire Therapy & Self-Development), which is a very large network of practitioners, offering a wide variety of approaches to counselling and psychotherapy, as well as groups and workshops to support people. So if we can’t work together whether because I am full or you are looking for something different, then I can usually refer you to someone with whom you can.

    OTS is based at Witney Therapy Centre, which I run, and is where I see my clients. OTS provides groups, 1-1 counselling and psychotherapy, workshops and support groups in Oxford and Witney, and throughout Oxfordshire. OTS also offers a low-cost counselling service for people who can't realistically afford the full cost of therapy. The service is able to offer low costs, as the counselling is provided by advanced trainees, and newly qualified practitioners looking to increase the number of clients they see and gain further experience. All off the counsellors and therapists in the service are fully supervised and insured.

    Witney Therapy Centre was set up at the beginning of 2004 to provide low cost and beautiful rooms for therapists. It is ideally placed in the town centre near bus stops and ample parking places around and about. There are four rooms at the Witney Therapy Centre, (including a large group room) which are used by other counsellors and psychotherapists from Witney and Oxford etc. Rooms are also rented out to hypnotherapists, accupuncturists, homeopaths etc.

    Please email me for further details or queries if you are a practitioner interested in room hire.
