About me

I have worked in a wide range of different contexts and with many nationalities and cultures and I
I specialise in working with families and individuals who have been through traumas of all kinds. I have trained in EMDR and narrative exposure therapy but usually use EMDR to alleviate symptoms and distress. I also work with the relationship problems and the questioning of life's meaning that often arise when people have experienced severe trauma. I work with children and young people as well as adults, in the context of their family.
I trained initially as a couple counsellor with Relate and later went on to qualify as a family therapist and EMDR practitioner.

I have a particular interest in the secondary or vicarious trauma which affects those who work in emergency response teams and in war and conflict zones, for example, or who are regularly confronted with very distressing situations in their professional roles.
Family therapy is usually systemic. This means I pay close attention to how problems are constructed and understood between family members and to the context which surrounds them now. I look at intergenerational patterns and past experiences when it seems they are influencing communication, feelings and understanding in the present.
I have also trained in psychodynamic and solution-focus work, and I am an accredited EMDR practitioner. I work in a collaborative way,tailoring the approach I take to particular needs and listening carefully to feed-back.

  I have a consulting room in my house which is about one mile from Oxford City Centre and close to bus routes. There is car parking in the road outside.
I am happy to have an initial conversation, either on the phone or face to face and without any commitment, so that we can talk about what you feel you need.
