I am a qualified counsellor offering one to one sessions in Bicester. I am committed to putting you at the heart of the process by listening to and understanding your life experiences from your point of view.
I work professionally and ethically with 11-18 year olds and adults, to create therapy sessions which are safe and non-judgmental, so that you feel comfortable exploring your issues. Clients find that their sessions offer them new ways of seeing and understanding their lives, and this in turn helps them to feel more positive about themselves and their future.

I have experience of counselling both teenagers and adults. I have worked as a counsellor for young people in secondary schools and with adults at local mental health charities. I have experience of working both long and short term with clients, dependent on their needs.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I believe that finding a therapist who you can work well with is the key to having a positive experience of therapy. I use an integrative approach when working with clients, which means that I include different theories and different methods of counselling depending on the needs of each client. By using a unique combination of approaches I can tailor your therapy to fit you.
