About me

Hello, I’m Heather Motion (Dip.Couns.), a qualified person-centred Therapeutic Counsellor working within an integrative model. I am also a qualified trauma counsellor and therefore my work is trauma-informed, and we may work to a focused model if you need to find a more stable way of being before processing traumatic experiences. I work with individuals who are over 18 years. I trained at Willows Counselling and Training Centre in Swindon, and have experience working within counselling agencies on a voluntary basis. I now do this alongside my own private practice.

I am originally from the North-East of Scotland but have been settled in South-West Oxfordshire for many years. I came to counselling following a long career in healthcare in which I mainly worked directly with patients and understood the value of creating and maintaining trusting and supportive relationships. I have had a wide range of life experiences, providing additional insights into clients’ varied challenges.

I am a member of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (Accredited) and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy , subscribing to their Ethical Frameworks to provide safe and competent practice to clients. I have a post-qualification Level 6 Diploma in Trauma Counselling to further support clients who continue to experience the effects of trauma in their lives. I continue to undertake regular continuing professional development and training to increase my competence, skills and understanding of clients’ diverse experiences.
