I believe that people are born with the potential to live satisfying and creative lives. Sometimes people still carry the residue of earlier pain and get stuck in beliefs and ways of behaving which have been useful in the past but have become limiting. Many present day symptoms such as anxiety, depression and stress related physical conditions have their roots in unresolved distress from the past.
People who have suffered traumatic or distressing experiences may not be helped sufficiently by talking therapies alone because we hold memories of distress in our bodies as well as in the mind. My trainings in EMDR and in the Energy therapies allow me to work with these memories at an embodied and energetic level.
For information on EMDR and energy therapies, see my website http://www.counsellingoxford.co.uk
My core psychotherapy training is in Gestalt and I have a previous background in teaching and Advice work.
My practice is in North Oxford with very good access by buses along the Banbury Road and is also easy to reach from the ring road by car with good parking options available.
