- Person-Centred counsellor/therapist
Individual cost£45 (Concession available for remote and telephone counselling but not for f2f due to room hire)
I offer a relational approach to counselling at your pace.
Often the problems we face stem from relationships: hurt by a parent or parter, losing someone we love, feeling out of touch with our relationship with ourselves. Just as relationships can make life difficult, a positive relationship can help us come to terms with our lives and begin to repair. As a Person-Centred Counsellor, I seek to offer you a relationship where you can feel encountered, and from that encounter be able to encounter yourself to find a long-lasting connection that can guide you through life's difficulties.
I'm glad you're taking the time to look at counsellors. Feel free to read more about me here or on my website (https://simonslistening.co.uk/about/), and to contact me to see if I'm the right fit for you. I counsel Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 9am - 7pm either remotely or face to face in Oxford.
Areas of practice
Rather than focussing on a specialist area, I aim to see you as a whole person and offer you a relationship where you are thoroughly heard. Some areas I've worked more in include homelessness, addiction, bereavement, affairs, farming, anxiety, depression, and I recently finished a level 2 in autism.
> I'm interested in Encounter Groups (https://www.the-pca.org.uk/community/local-groups.html) as an example of Person Centred philosphy in action - the power of transformation from empathy and realness.
> I'm a bit of a geek and very much enjoy what we can learn from ourselves from the media we watch, games we play, or fantasies we escape to.
The Old School House sadly isnt accessible, requiring two flights of stairs to reach the room. There is limited parking at the venue, or roadside parking and it is very accessible by bike or public transport.
I offer home-visits within the ring-road and remote counselling via phone or video messenger (e.g. Zoom).

Fees statementCounselling can be a committment, both emotionally trusting a therapist but also financially. I try to keep my fees as accessible as possible and offer concessions for financial hardship & students in training.
