Low Cost Counselling

Student Counsellors

The training to be a counsellor and psychotherapist takes place over a minimum of 4 years.  During that time trainees undergo rigorous and closely supervised skills practice.  During the final two years of the training, the student will accumulate 120 hours of face to face counselling wtih clients while in an agency placement.  The students here at the Banbury Therapy Centre are undergoing this final training.  Clients who see the the student counsellor will first be assessed by a qualified therapist to ensure that they will have a productive experience with the student. There is no charge for the therapy, but a fee for the hire of the room is payable which is £10.50 per session.  If you are interested in seeing a student counsellor, please contact reception on 01295 231320 or email info@banburytherapycentre.com.

Sue Lewis - Pesso-Boyden Therapy

A New Therapy Approach – Low Cost Taster Sessions

Not many of us have perfect childhoods (parents are only human and we all make mistakes), and we have usually learned something unhelpful when we were young that gets in the way of us being the person we could be in adulthood.

Pesso Boyden uses a symbolic method to ‘create a new memory’ and form a positive experience from which we can live our lives. It has been shown by some neuroscience research to affect the wiring in our brains in a very positive way.  It is focused on our bodily feelings and emotions, and is very client-led in a gentle, safe and positive environment.

Sue is currently training in this approach and is running individual sessions and groups at a discount. As part of this agreement, the session will be filmed for supervision (your confidentiality will be maintained at all times).

Please let Reception (01295 231320) know if you would be interested in a Pesso-Boyden session. 

More information on the Pesso Boyden method can be found at www.pessoboydenuk.org.
