About me

Currently offering all counselling and Supervision online. Face to face sessions available at Wantage office.

I am a fully qualified counsellor based in Witney and Wantage, Oxfordshire.

I believe that we all have a unique model of the world and have an inclusive approach to counselling; and my aim is to create a safe, confidential space that client can use to focus on themselves and their experiences.

I offer an opportunity to develop an equal, non-judgemental therapeutic relationship where clients can explore past experiences that affect their life now; so that they can consider options that increase choice, and move their life forward in creative and positive ways.

Scope of Practice:

Counselling - Individuals, couples in relationship, and groups.

EMDR - I use EMDR for trauma related work, anxiety and depression.

Personal Development Coaching - Individuals and groups, for personal and professional development.

Clinical Supervision - 1:1 and group Clinical Supervision (groups up to 4 supervisees).

Training - I teach at an established counselling charity in Wantage, and provide counselling training from certificate to diploma level, and post diploma training for qualified counsellors.

Please contact me if you'd like to discuss any of the services I offer.

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.
