Eleanor Catherine: Core Process Psychotherapy

Eleanor Catherine


As well as working as a botanical artist, I have been practicing Buddhism for 30 years. I am inspired and challenged by the Buddhist teaching that we are all interconnected, so my work as a therapist feels like a natural extension of my desire to understand myself and to connect more deeply with others. 

I am a senior student in Core Process psychotherapy, which fuses modern psychological understanding with the time-honoured practice of deep mindfulness. This form of therapy includes the idea that we have a fundamental ‘core’ of basic goodness and well-being that can never be lost, even in the midst of difficulty and suffering.

As a trainee therapist I can offer a confidential and empathic space where it’s possible to address challenging life issues. We can work together over a shorter or longer term course of weekly, one-hour sessions, to find authentic and compassionate ways forward.

It’s important that you find a therapist who you feel comfortable to work with, so I offer a free, no obligation, first session of 45 minutes. After this I charge £35 per hour. If you wish to continue we can set up six sessions and then review how it’s going. 

I am working online and also offer face to face sessions. I work at The Oxford Practice Rooms.



Sometimes we all need someone to talk things over with, in confidence and without judgement. Feeling witnessed and supported by another person can make it possible to bring more kindness to ourselves and to take positive but challenging steps that we couldn’t manage alone. Therapy gives us a dedicated space that friends and family may not always be able to offer, to explore how to work with areas such as:


Stress and burnout 

Low mood

Bereavement or loss

Relationship issues

Career and life changes



Challenges in creative or spiritual life
