I’m Garon and thank you for finding my page.
I practice counselling from home in Bicester, Oxfordshire in my own private practice.
I am an Accredited Registrant Member of The National Counselling Society.
I’ve been a qualified therapist since 2017 and absolutely love what I do. I’ve worked with adults & teenagers supporting with addictions, anxiety, depression, stress and various mental health support needs.
Having spent most of my working life as a DJ and Producer, It was in this environment that I learned the value of patience and sensitivity.
I was dealing with various people who were often under pressure, and intense competition and unless they felt completely comfortable, they couldn’t express themselves.
I have always had an interest in what makes people ‘tick’, so after leaving the music scene and making big life changes, breaking away from groups, and breaking away from my own addiction at the time, which guided me to seek counselling for my own personal reasons, which helped me find my own direction in life.
I started to attend self-development workshops, read lots of psychology books and took an interest in alternative therapies and psychology.
I trained to become a Reiki Master Teacher in the Usui Japanese form of reiki healing.
I then trained as a Counsellor while working within substance misuse, supported living & homelessness sector.
I have over 10 years of experience working with addictions, homelessness, supported living working for various charities over the years

My Therapeutic Approach
My Counselling approach is based on the integrative counselling model. This means I can use a spectrum of types of therapy and therapeutic interventions. However, as Carl Jung put it, “learn your theories as well as you can, but put them aside when you touch the miracle of a living soul.” So it’s your needs which must come first. I adapt my clinical approach to suit the problems you bring and the hopes you have for the work we do together. I can use Reiki with Counselling within the sessions as well as meditation and mindfulness within my sessions.
