About me

People seek counselling for a wide variety of reasons. Some to get understanding of long deep rooted issues, others to find clarity or direction in their lives. Some people come to counselling because life has become difficult to cope with.

When things get so difficult that it's starting to affect your day-to-day living, then perhaps it's a good time to seek the assistance of a counsellor, rather than allow the situation to get bigger.

I'm an experienced integrative counsellor and my counselling practice is based in Milcombe, which is 10 minutes from Banbury, Oxfordshire. As a therapist, I work with individuals, both with adults, and with young people and children over the age of 11.

I can offer you a safe confidential environment to be able to talk freely and in your own time about any issues that are affecting you. I'm not going to judge you or be shocked, but I will be supportive and caring and at your side when you talk about any difficult issues in your life, which may be about yourself or others, past or present. My aims as a counsellor are to be able to get a feeling of what it's like being you, to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and also to support you in ways of helping you to cope better.
