Sometimes our issues can get so difficult to cope, it can create, stress, anxiety, depression or overwhelm. If this has started to affect your day-to-day living, then it may be time to consider having some counselling

Welcome, I'm Graham McDonald I'm an experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and I offer my services in the vicinity of Banbury, Oxfordshire. My private counselling practice, Surviving to Thriving Counselling, is located in Milcombe, Banbury.

I am able to offer Face-to-Face, Zoom, WhatsApp (online video) therapy sessions to current and new clients.

People seek counselling for a wide variety of reasons. Some to learn cognitive tools that can help to calm down what they are feeling, eg. anxiety, overwhelm, depression, anger, fear. Or to get a better understanding of long deep rooted issues. eg. traumas, loss and grief, long term illness and/or disability. Some people to seek and find clarity or direction in their lives. Some people come to counselling because life has become difficult to cope with. Any mental health issues, whether they have appeared out of the blue or whether they have been around for some time, can be frightening and exhausting to manage and sometimes these feelings tend not to just go away on their own.

I provide a safe, confidential, and calm environment, where you can talk to someone who won't judge you, and who is understanding and empathic to any issues you may bring, and help you towards a better way of coping.
