About me

I am a qualified, registered  Integrative Therapist and CBT practitioner.  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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
