Looking after your emotional health and mental wellbeing

Online and Face to Face Counselling:

I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist based in Oxfordshire, and I am very happy to see people in person, or to work online by FaceTime, Zoom or WhatsApp.

People are talking

Once taboo subjects like depression, anxiety and grief are getting easier for many people to speak about. Mental health and emotional wellbeing are no longer to be feared, but are now, more than ever, understood to be part of normal experience as we all have a psychological life and powerful feelings which we can struggle to manage. Everyone will experience the normal emotional process of coming to terms with ourselves as we change, face challenges and grow older. All of us must face grieving and loss. Many people, at some point in their lives, experience some sort of mental illness, ranging from anxiety attacks or mild depression to something more severe.

For a large number of people there are particular emotional struggles associated with the past, or with problems in the present which are debilitating and limit our lives. We want to live to the full, with healthy relationships, a sound sense of our own worth, and fulfilling work. But sometimes our thoughts, feelings and emotions seem to prevent us from living as we would like to. This is where counselling and psychotherapy can be so effective.
