About me

I am a BABCP and BACP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and integrative psychotherapist. I have been working for the last 12 years both in private practice and for an Employee Assistance Programme. As well as working with individuals and couples, I do a great deal of post-trauma work with groups and organisations, and also work as a mediator (qualified member of the Professional Mediators' Association).

Though trained integratively (MA and Diploma, Minster Centre), I have subsequently undergone training in CBT at the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre and in Evidence-Based Psychological Treatment at Reading University. I am fully accredited by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP). I am currently working almost exclusively with clients seeking CBT for specific issues and disorders, such as OCD, PTSD, Panic, Anxiety and Mood Disorders, addictions and impulse control disorders.

For 15 years I have worked as an executive coach (AC Accredited), for the Civil Service and other public and private sector clients, both in the UK and overseas. Since 2008, I have been a regular Associate Tutor / Coach at Oxford Said Business School on many open and custom programmes in Executive Education. Enquiries are welcome from anyone interested in career development / executive / life coaching.

I believe that the key to a successful therapeutic outcome is a genuine, warm and respectful relationship between client and therapist. I prefer to work collaboratively, tailoring my approach to the needs and objectives of each person. My greatest pleasure is accompanying clients through a challenging period in their lives, offering them appropriate support, and seeing them build strength and confidence in their ability to access and make use of their own resourcefulness.

I speak fluent Spanish and am happy to work with Spanish-speaking clients.
