Background

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

I qualified as a counsellor in 2009 and began working for a Counselling Agency based near Leamington Spa. Whilst there, I worked with people on both a short and long term basis, supporting them with a range issues and needs.

I also specialise in bereavement counselling and have many years experience in supporting people through this challenging time in their lives. Prior to working with the agency I volunteered for my local hospice providing bereavement support to family and friends following the death of their loved one.

I currently work with Cruse Bereavement Care and The Foundation for Infant Loss offering support to anyone facing the challenges of loss and bereavement.

I have my own private practice where I offer counselling to adults and young people on a one to one basis. I have expertise in 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.

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.
