This professional is available for new clients.
I am a qualified, registered Integrative Therapist, a licensed Person Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression Therapist and Superviser and an Interpersonal Psychotherapist. I aim to provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where we can work together to help you achieve some clarity and enable you to gain the strength and confidence to explore any areas of your life that may be causing anxiety, depression, distress or other difficulties.
I work integratively, principally using either Person-Centre Therapy (PCT) or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT has been proven to be very effective with various anxiety related conditions such as Social Anxiety, General Anxiety, Panic, OCD, phobias and depression. I am also trained in and can incorporate Transactional Analysis into my practice (particularly effective with relationship issues).
Always at the heart of my practice is the Client. I work with the client’s agenda (what you bring and who you are); I am client lead and we work at your pace, this could lead to short or long term work, always the client’s choice.
I have experience of working with people from all walks of life, gender, age and ethnicity.
My private practice is located in Chinnor, Oxfordshire.
I receive regular clinical supervision, ensuring ethical and safe practice is maintained.
Please note the on-line therapy I can offer is via Skype.

As well as my private practice, I worked for a number of years for an agency specialising in working with survivors of sexual abuse and rape both recent and historic including ritualistic and organised child abuse.
I am an Accredited member of the BACP and am registered on the BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists.
I abide by the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I hold an enhanced DBS (CRB) Certificate.
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.
Accredited register membership
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.
