Hans Meijer BACP Accredited Counsellor / Psychotherapist Oxfordshire OX11


Hans is patient, welcoming and kind and made me feel very much at ease, and that real change was possible right from the start. I looked forward to my weekly sessions so much. It was a calm place when things were overwhelming at times, and session by session Hans enabled me to make sense of everything I was thinking, feeling and experiencing, to embrace it and ultimately set me free to guide myself through my life. Each session was a gift and taught me so much. My approach to life has changed, and I finished our sessions feeling free and optimistic for the future – knowing that I could handle whatever it presents and knowing I will thrive. I can’t thank Hans enough.

Hans is an intelligent and a gentle person with a lot of common sense and a great sense of humour. He provides a friendly and calm atmosphere during his sessions. He seems more like a friend than a counsellor but he keeps being objective. Hans has an ability to show you alternative ways of thinking and is not afraid of asking difficult questions. He really cares. I highly recommend him!

As a therapist Hans has a unique ability to see through the surface issues and spot the real issue which was lurking in the background all along. More times than not I would leave his sessions with a feeling of elation that he had managed to identify a new strand of looking at things and thus help me move forward. I don't know how he does it, but it speaks to his profound skills of assessment which is a priceless quality in a therapist. I could not recommend his services more highly.

With Hans’ extremely professional help, I have managed to pull myself together even though I thought there is absolutely no way out. He has always been compassionate and helped me understand how to see things differently which has resulted in noticeable changes in how I felt about myself.
Hans’s clarity of approach and personal warmth have given me confidence and strength to overcome the fears I felt were incurable all my life.

It's been an eye opening journey, one I wouldn't have anticipated. You helped me to see.

I approached the sessions at first with some apprehension, but Hans had a way of making me feel at ease. It was his combination of professionalism and relaxed personable approach that helped me relax and slowly open up on the personal issues that I needed to work through. As the sessions went along I found myself looking forward to them more and more and was surprised how often I left in a very pensive state having gleaned some insight into my life I had never seen before or thought of in the way Hans helped me to. Gradually I felt a weight was lifting off my shoulders and I could see myself moving forward. By the time my sessions were coming to an end I felt I was able to close one chapter in my life and begin another. I am very grateful to Hans for all his help and support and would not hesitate to recommend him.

Coming to these sessions has been an amazing experience for me. Sometimes I didn't feel like talking or felt I had nothing to say, but after the session I would realise there was always something that would emerge that would be quite profound and really make me turn my head and think about things in a different light.
The best thing is.....I have my life back...

Hans' work with me was instrumental in helping me through a difficult period of my life. As well as providing a safe, non-judgemental environment, I found Hans highly skilled at perceiving the core problems and issues under my words and was able to suggest useful ways forward once these had been identified. I often experienced the feeling of 'a penny dropping' when in sessions with Hans and when I left sessions I often hurried to write down points he had made. I have been to a number of counsellors previously and believe Hans to be a particularly talented and gifted one. The biggest proof of his work with me was noticing changes in myself - particularly in the way I was thinking. Some of these changes happened so naturally I wasn't even aware a change had occurred until it was pointed out how different my reactions were to those of previous months. Friends and family also commented on improvements in me. I am really grateful I met Hans and hope his ideas and comments stay with me for years to come.
