Chris Cullen Psychotherapy & Counselling in Oxford

Chris Cullen – Oxford Therapist

Psychotherapy & Counselling in Oxford

Chris Cullen is an experienced, mindfulness-based, trauma-oriented psychotherapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and NARM therapist in Oxford. For details of these approaches please see About Me.

Approaching psychotherapy or counselling for the first time can feel like a daunting prospect. You may be in crisis, or you may simply wish to explore some aspect of your experience more deeply. Either way, it’s a positive and courageous choice to make.

People from all walks of life come to see me for a wide range of reasons including depression, anxiety, chronic stress, the after-effects of traumatic experiences including the impacts of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, family and relational problems, grief, sexual anxieties and the effects of abuse, difficult decisions, developmental challenges, life-stage issues, spiritual crises and awakenings.

My aim is to provide a safe, confidential and friendly space in which you can discuss and reflect on your experience, without any sense of pressure or judgement. I offer shorter-term counselling and more open-ended psychotherapy. Both are informed by mindfulness-based, relational and psychodynamic approaches that offer great depth but also practical benefits in meeting the challenges and opportunities of daily life, and discovering new freedoms to live with more connection, aliveness and meaning.

With over 20 years of experience in psychotherapeutic work, I’ve trained in a wide range of approaches (more details on the about me page), integrating these with an intention to listen deeply and respond appropriately to the particular needs, desires and circumstances of each individual.

Contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an initial no-obligation appointment.
