I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist (accredited by the British Psychological Society), based just outside of Oxford. I work with adults, students, children and older adults on an individual basis.
Clients come to me with a number of issues including depression, stress, bereavement, eating disorders, self-harm, abuse, bullying, anger management and sexuality among many others.
I work both on a long term or short term basis. Counselling can help individuals explore difficult feelings and relationships and help them discover and clarify ways for living more satisfyingly and resourcefully. It can help individuals cope with painful life experiences in a confidential setting.
A Counselling Psychologist is a counsellor who has initial training in psychology, and who uses psychological methods and models in their approach. I work integratively (using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and person-centred approach).
I am also a Clinical Hypnotherapist (National Council for Hypnotherapy) - I work with many issues including insomnia, disordered eating, phobias, smoking, weight loss, stress and anxiety.
I see clients both for day time appointments and evening appointments. Clients may prefer a regular time or a time that can be more flexible to fit in with other commitments.
