About me

Please note that because of the coronavirus. I am currently working online only. I am happy to take you on as a new client if you are struggling with the way Covid-19 is impacting on your life, and also if you would like to take up counselling or psychotherapy for other reasons. I am currently offering reduced rates for key workers or other people on a low income.

I am an experienced therapist offering short term and long term counselling and psychotherapy in a consulting room close to central Oxford. I deal with issues including depression, loss, anger, anxiety, relationship and mental health difficulties, as well as exploring who you are and life directions.

You may be seeking help because you are going through a period of crisis or pain, or because you have felt stuck, anxious or depressed for some time. There may be past or present issues or relationship that you feel the need to explore. You may have experienced, or be starting to experience, mental health difficulties. My core approach is psychodynamic, which means that we will work together to get to the root of current or ongoing issues, and try to make sense of them and work through the feelings involved.  My aim is to offer the right balance of support and challenge to help you move forward, understand yourself better, and discover more satisfying ways of thinking, feeling, relating and living.


I work in a quiet ground floor consulting room in a clinic with disabled access. It is on a bus route and there is free 2-hour parking nearby.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MA in Modern Languages, and an MSt in Psychodynamic Practice, from Oxford University. The latter includes both a Certificate in Psychodynamic Studies and a Diploma in Psychodynamic Practice. I am currently on the committee of the Oxford Psychotherapy Society.

I am accredited by and registered with the UKCP, and a member of the BACP, and I abide by their codes of ethics and practice.

I have several years experience of offerering counselling and psychotherapy in different NHS settings, including Psychological Services. I have also worked in a large workplace organisation, offering therapy for work-related and personal issues, and have experience of working with people with mental health issues.

I have a wide professional experience of working with people from diverse cultures and religious backgrounds. I can offer therapy in Spanish and French.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
