As a fully trained and qualified provider of CBT, I aim to tailor each session to your needs. No matter your situation, my therapy sessions are confidential, professional, and helpful for developing more insight.
Both long and short-term schema therapy is available. As a treatment that specifically helps to formulate complex needs, it is often used when existing therapy options don’t work.
As a viable treatment for past traumatic experiences that continue to affect well-being, is often extremely effective. I provide this option for clients across South Wales.
As an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist I am passionate in passing my knowledge. In that regard, I regularly provide accredited supervisory sessions for those learning CBT in Bridgend and the surrounding area.
Hi, my name is Oxana Jones and thank you for vising my website. I was born and brought up in the Ukraine where I finished my first degree in Practical Psychology and qualified to teach English. I am a registered Counselling Psychologist in the UK. I came to Britain over fifteen years ago and I have continued to train and study here, serving clients throughout Bridgend, Neath, Port Talbot, and Cardiff. You are welcome to have a look at my CV, qualifications, and training. I work four days for Veterans NHS Wales: https://www.veteranswales.co.uk/health-boards/abertawe-bro-morgannwg.html and run my own Tuesday clinic.
I speak English well, although I doubt that I will ever manage to lose my accent. If you have any doubt about whether you will be able to understand me, please give me a call. If I don’t pass this simple test, you know you need to look further.
Of course, I also speak Russian and Ukrainian, although I will struggle to deliver psychotherapy in either of those languages as all my psychotherapy training was in English. You can always contact me to discuss options.
For me, a good therapist is warm, considerate, and trustworthy. These qualities go along with the learned skills and qualifications which are also required in my profession. I am reliable, honest, and transparent. My clients’ feedback confirms that I am compassionate and easy to get along with. I believe in one’s autonomy and the right to make his/her own choices. I am registered with the Information Commissioners Office, as your confidentiality is important.
As a psychotherapist, I offer a journey of self-development and self-growth. The journey could be revealing and exciting, painful and scary, insightful and fulfilling. You will experience that psychotherapy can be hard work, as it requires effort on your part in order to move forward. I am here every step of the way to assist.
I work within three psychotherapeutic modalities which have evidence-based research that confirms their effectiveness in helping people in distress. When you start looking at the evidence, research usually talks about mental health diagnoses; please do not get put off by this. Mental health professionals concluded that they need to have a shared a language to understand each other when they talk about human suffering, and therefore put together diagnostic criteria of symptoms to indicate a particular problem.
In therapy, we work with the things you struggle with, and it makes no difference whether you have an official diagnosis or not. Remember, there are going to be two people on the therapeutic journey, both experts. One who knows some theoretical background of human suffering (me), and another who knows his/her life story really well (you)!
I am passionate about my clients’ stories and this always reflects on my face. So, get ready, I am going to be there with you, doing my best to help you become a more rounded and content person. I specialise in trauma treatment, developmental (childhood) trauma, civilian and military trauma, and other occupational issues.
I have a specific interest in supervision and have also been trained overseas on how to teach what I know. For more information about each treatment option, please visit the relevant pages, or contact me whenever you’re ready.
