Welcome to my profile.
I provide affordable, unbiased and confidential psychotherapy for individuals and couples in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire and London.
My therapeutic approach is integrative and incorporates elements of Person-centred therapy, Psychodynamic theory, Gestalt and Imago therapies and a systemic approach. I work with each and every client in a way that is right for you.
I am the Clinical Director of The Caesura Centre in Oxfordshire. From this centre, myself and a number of other therapists offer talking therapies including Psychosexual and Relationship therapy, Addiction therapy, Mindfulness, CBT, general counselling, hypnotherapy and NLP. We aim to match you with the therapist with the specialism to suit your needs and a fee to suit your budget.
After completing my BSc (Hons) in Psychology, I qualified with the London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy. I also hold a Certificate in Counselling Skills and an HNC in Early Childhood Studies with extensive study in child/parental relationships and attachment. I am committed to on-going personal and professional development and have attended a number of courses and seminars in the areas of Psychology, Counselling and Sexuality. I have also completed specialist training on working with sexual minorities including the LGBT(Q) community.
I have spent time working with charities and organisations specialising in the reintegration of sex offenders into the community and the support of survivors of sexual abuse and rape. I have completed extensive specialist Sex Addiction training with Patrick Carnes and other pioneers in the field and have vast experience of working with Addictions in the Psychosexual field including Sex, Pornography and Love Addiction and co-dependent relationships.
We strongly believe that counselling should be available for everybody, and as such, we are happy to agree a fee that is affordable for you, no matter what your circumstances are. Please do call or e-mail to discuss your requirements further and to see how Psychotherapy or counselling may be able to help you.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
