About me

Coronavirus situation: I now work by Zoom, Skype and by phone only, no longer face-to-face.

Is the relationship with your partner not what it used to be?
Is there an area of your life that is proving difficult or stressful?
Have you had a loss or trauma in your life and are finding it hard to cope?
Did you have difficulties in your childhood and are now finding that they are affecting you as an adult?
Does life seem dreary and you have lost your direction?

You could well find some positive improvements using counselling. I am a professionally qualified and experienced counsellor working in Oxford. I offer counselling for many issues, including relationship problems, depression, anxiety, stress, addictions, loss and bereavement, as well as regaining the positive aspects of life. I work with individuals and couples.

I believe that the most successful therapeutic relationship is one that is warm, accepting and genuine, with both client and counsellor working collaboratively on the clients issues. I will work with you in a non-judgemental, confidential and transparent way and I bring a broad range of counselling experience to the work - the breadth of this experience can be seen from the list below. I can offer a safe space for you to explore issues that are affecting you and your daily life. This safe space and time allows you to gain a greater understanding of your difficulties and to make sense of what is happening in your life.

As a person-centred counsellor, I offer both short term and long term therapy, and am happy to work over the phone.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
