About me

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.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
