Jan Lewis Counselling in Oxford

WELCOME

I am a fully qualified therapeutic counsellor and a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Registered Member. I offer a counselling service in East Oxford, within easy reach of Oxford city centre. I work with individuals from all walks of life on a short term or longer term open-ended basis. I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

You may be seeking counselling for current issues, past experiences, to change old patterns or you may not know why you are experiencing certain thoughts and feelings that are impeding on your life. Counselling gives you space to share and explore your experiences, to increase awareness and work towards change or to reconcile with what you cannot change.

"Resilience isn't about toughing it out, being stoic or going it alone. In fact, being able to reach out to others for support is a key component of being resilient" (Mayo Clinic)


Counselling is an opportunity for you to reach out and invest in yourself. In short term counselling the focus is upon supporting you in your current difficulties. In longer term open ended counselling I use a psychotherapeutic approach. This approach explores what's happening and how things are for you, so you and I may learn more about your patterns in how you think, feel and act within your relationship with self and others. Once we recognise these patterns, we need to find out more about their origins and purpose and if there is something you would like to change. As you make sense of your experiences, I will be alongside you to support and challenge to enable you to move forward at your pace.

I offer counselling for a range of issues including :
  • Life crisis and change
  • Relationship issues
  • Anxiety, Stress and Depression
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Low self-esteem
  • Identity and cultural issues
  • LGBTQ+
  • Gender diversity
  • Work related issues
  • Childhood experiences
  • Domestic abuse
  • Health issues
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • A sense of unease with life

    Please be aware the areas identified above is not an exhaustive list; you may have other issues, your own definition of your experiences or struggle to put into words what's happening for you.

    A counsellor is independent from other people in your life and sessions are usually for a set time, day and venue that is mutually agreed between you and your counsellor.
