Kelly Grimes


Integrative Counsellor

Member BACP


I am a qualified Counsellor working from Banbury Therapy Centre. Sometimes feelings can be overwhelming to hold alone and you might want to share this with someone who is trained to listen and who offers a safe and nurturing space.

When there is pressure to “move on”, or “let go”, I can support you gain insight into your experiences and how they have shaped you as you are now. Together we can explore your ways of being with others, your relationships and how you carry your feelings. Sometimes you might need to protect the unsaid, or perhaps you might need other ways to express your feelings, when there are no words or when you need something different to words.

Major changes in your life may have created a loss of the person you once were. Perhaps you feel that you lack purpose and that everything is hopeless. You may have conflicting feelings, or what once seemed to make sense may have become confusing. Situations may be familiar, yet uncomfortable and you may be wondering why you can’t move forward. This can bring anxiety, sadness, loneliness, or maybe numbness and an absence of feelings.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if this is your time to reach out and I hope I can help you. I love my client work. I am impacted deeply by the journeys clients have taken and the courage they can build to help make their lives better than before. I am experiencing how journeys can move through challenge, pain and hope.
