Clara Reeves. Counsellor & Therapist.
Oxford in person. Online anywhere.
You may be facing challenges, or finding it hard to move forward in your life or you might want to understand yourself better.
I am a warm, non-judgemental counsellor and I provide a confidential space to help you explore your feelings. I offer a safe and supportive relationship for you to heal and to live your life in a more resourceful way.
I am trained as an Integrative Counsellor. I work with different therapeutic approaches, including Person Centred, (Humanistic), Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I also do brief solution work. This flexible approach allows me to work with individuals with their own unique needs. I understand that people come to counselling for a variety of reasons. The way I work supports you by giving you a trusting space where you can freely express yourself.
