About me

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 practice I work with many issues, including anxiety, low mood and depression, gender issues, OCD and trauma. I also have a particular interest in relationship difficulties, family life cycle issues, ante-natal & post-natal therapy, parenting problems (including parenting complex children), family difficulties, bereavement and separation. I see individuals, couples and constellations of more than one family member.
I am happy to meet people for consultation for 1 or 2 sessions, which is sometimes enough to clarify and assist with decision making about a specific issue.

I work in Oxford and charge £65 per session.
Couples/families £75.
I offer a 4 session adolescent/young person intervention for £230

I am registered with the ACP, the BACP and the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Art Psychotherapy (Sheffield Hallam), Intermediate level Systemic Therapy (Oxford Institute of Family Therapy), a Masters in Psychoanalytic Infant Observation Studies (Tavistock Clinic, London), NHS MPhil 4 year full time training in Psychotherapy, specialising in child, adolescent and parent work (Birmingham Trust for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy).
I have many years experience working in the NHS, some inpatient, mostly community services, including child and adolescent mental health teams (CAMHS), specialist 'looked after ' children team, infant - parent perinatal services, preschool services, adolescent clinics and family treatment services.
I have many additional shorter trainings, including attachment assessments and treatments and group work.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.
