About me

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. You can find my private practice in Summertown, Cowley or Banbury. I am a counsellor who has a wealth of experience in working with depression and anxiety disorders. I have gained my experience over the past 7 years by working in the private sector, an Employee Assistance Programme that offers counselling support as well as for a number of charities, meeting a broad range of clients with very diverse backgrounds from all over the world. My clients have always appreciated my flexible and practical approach and have always welcomed my active contributions to face the challenges of their situations.

My expertise lies with clients who have been affected by serious mental health problems reaching crisis point, traumatic childhoods, bereavement, work related stress or long term sickness and are finding it difficult to restore normality and focus. I have also worked extensively with clients with relationship problems who have been going through trial separations or a traumatic divorce or have suffered from abusive relationships as children or adults. My daily work routine includes working with clients who reach out from all over the world, who are in crisis situations and require psychological first aid as well as ongoing support.

As I am from an engineering background with many years of experience as a Quality Consultant and Trainer, I can also help with performance anxiety, fatigue and procrastination, if you are suffering from work or study related stress.

I am aware that counselling can be expensive; therefore I always offer sessions for a reduced fee to those who are currently suffering from financial hardship.

My approach

I would like to offer you a confidential space to talk openly about the difficulties you are experiencing or the aspirations you are pursuing, so that I can actively support you to gain personal insights and to find a way forward in your personal development.

For this to happen it is important to identify in the first session what suits your ways of thinking and working based on your presenting issue. This has been especially helpful for clients who are new to counselling or have experienced difficulties with previous counselling approaches.

I am qualified to work with a number of theoretical approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in order to meet your individual needs; I offer short-term interventions as well as long-term therapy. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact me and we can arrange an initial session for you to meet me, so that we can decide, if I am the right person to help you.
