Psychotherapy and Counselling in Witney, Oxfordshire
BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist working from 11 West End, Witney, Oxfordshire.
Most people are a mystery to themselves. They find themselves pulled in different directions at different times and this can lead to all kinds of mental and emotional distress. In therapy we spend time getting to know the full complexity that is you and how each aspect or facet of yourself intersects and interacts with all the others. In addition we will be paying attention to how those different aspects interact with the ‘outside’ world in the form of other people and your relationships with them.
The aim of integrative therapy is not to find your ‘true self’ but to be able to navigate the world as your ‘whole self’, with all it’s complexity and freedom.
Part of our ‘wholeness’ is that we are not just individuals in the world but that we are affected by powerful systemic forces at play in our society which can impact us depending on our race, gender/gender identification, sexuality, ability/disability, class and cultural background.
