I am a psychotherapist, trained in the NHS where I have worked for 20 years (ongoing).
I work with teenagers, children and adults. In my private work I am specialising in relationship difficulties, family life cycle issues, ante-natal & post-natal therapy, parent-infant psychotherapy, parenting problems (including parenting complex children), family difficulties, bereavement, divorce and separation. I see individuals, couples and constellations of more than one family member.
I am happy to meet people for a single or 2 session consultation, which is sometimes enough to clarify and assist with decision making about a specific issue.
I work in Oxford and charge £60 per session.
I offer a 4 session adolescent/young person intervention for £200
I am registered with the ACP, the BACP and the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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.
