About me

I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist (UKCP registered) with over 30 years experience working with both individuals and couples.  My role is to work empathically with you to encourage greater personal awareness and insight, in order that you can make the life changes that you long for.  I work with genuine respect for you and your personal values, whilst offering alternative ways of understanding yourself and your life.  The process offers you a therapeutic alliance which facilitates personal and spiritual growth.  It also encourages the development of the necessary inner resources and personal qualities which will support  you to develop the freedom to live more fully.

I also support my clients in working through a current crisis or with an ongoing problem: stress and anxiety; relationship difficulties; bereavement and loss; depression; ageing and retirement; low self-esteem; life changes, finding a new direction/meaning in life; career and work related issues; loss of meaning/purpose; struggling with religious or spiritual faith; personal identity; developing creativity and overcoming blocks to creative expression. I also offer mindfulness meditation and supervision for psychotherapists, counsellors, key workers, youth workers and pastoral support workers.

Training, qualifications & experience

After eight years of training, I completed a Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling (which is recognised by the BACP and UKCP) at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education in London, and subsequently gained a Diploma in Supervision and an Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Psychotherapy, also from the CCPE.

I have been working in the field of people development, particularly Human Resource Management, since 1979 and have been practising in counselling and psychotherapy since 1991; and since 1995, I have been running my own private practices in London, Witney and the Cotswolds. I currently only work in Witney.
