Background

My name is Kay Roach and I am a qualified Accredited counsellor based in Banbury.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2009 and began working for a Counselling Agency where I worked with people on both a short and long term basis, supporting them with a range of issues and needs.

Through volunteering at my local hospice and the work I have done with Cruse Bereavement Care and The Foundation for Infant Loss, I have gained many years of experience in supporting bereaved people through that very challenging time in their lives.

I now have my own private practice where I offer counselling to adults and young people on a one to one basis across areas such as anxiety, depression, divorce, bereavement, anger, abuse and relationship issues.

I also offer couples counselling, where we can work on areas such as, communication skills, conflict resolution, intimacy concerns, raising children and other life transitions.

My Approach

I am an integrative counsellor which means I use a range of different theories and approaches when seeing clients, such as person-centred approach, psychodynamic theory and CBT. In addition I offer a space where you can explore your spirituality and faith.

I use a variety of therapeutic interventions depending upon the needs and desires of the client. All of which are underpinned with the core conditions of respect, empathy and genuineness.
