Counselling and therapy in Oxfordshire "And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time" T.S. Eliot "What I have left behind, seemingly lost, I meet in everything that comes my way and I collect it, reassembling it as it were" C.G Jung Linda Barlow – Counsellor and Psychotherapist
My practice is based in Eynsham
, which is within easy reach of Oxford, Witney, Bicester, Abingdon, Woodstock, Burford
and West Oxfordshire.
I an a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist with over 27 years' experience working with individuals. My role is to work empathetically with you to address a wide range of personal issues, and to provide support through difficult life experiences. My aim is to provide a safe and confidential space, with respect for you and your personal values, and to help you to make sense of thoughts and feelings that may be causing you difficulty.
My therapeutic training covers a wide range: from the transpersonal perspective
to the focused short-term approach of Cognitive Analytic Therapy
. I therefore see some clients for a very few sessions which would aim to put a problem into perspective and identify resources for further help –and others for longer-term psychotherapy which would go more deeply into patterns and self exploration. It is a good idea to come for one session as an assessment, which will make clear what is needed, and what you would like to pursue. (See the section on FAQ
for further details).
I have 43 years' experience of work with stress management
for individuals and organisations, and have worked for the last 27 years as a counsellor/ psychotherapist with referrals from GPs, Occupational Health, employee assistance providers as well as private referrals.
I am a registered Psychotherapist with the UKCP
, and a member of several professional organisations (see the Contact
page for further information).
I have practised Transcendental Meditation for the last 46 years, and found it immensely enjoyable and helpful.
I am committed to my continuing professional development, and my practice is fully supervised.

Anxiety and stress
Life changes, challenges, finding direction
