About me

I believe in the power of therapy to enhance life on many levels – emotionally, intellectually, practically and spiritually. I’m an experienced integrative psychotherapist and counsellor who works by tailoring therapy to the needs of the individual, in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

I have over fifteen years experience in short, medium and long term therapy and have worked with a wide range of presenting issues, including: depression, anxiety, work stress, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, trauma, sexual and physical abuse, anger management, infertility, insomnia, bipolar disorder, bereavement and loss. I have a special interest in working with people from different cultures.

I have worked successfully with people who have no clear presenting problem, but who wish to feel better about themselves, their relationships, and their lives in general.

I also offer clinical supervision and training therapy.

I offer a warm, positive and creative therapeutic environment in which people are able achieve their goals.

I also have a BA (Hons) and an MA (Hons) from Magdalen College, Oxford, in Classics and Modern Languages.
