About me

I am an LGBTQIA+ friendly counsellor and psychotherapist working in Oxford and Abingdon. I have been in practice for over seven years delivering one-to-one therapy. I aim to create a safe and affirmative environment for clients of all genders and sexualities.

My core values as a therapist are openness, empathy, and authenticity. I will work with you to collaborate and face issues together. You can expect a safe and welcoming space to be heard without judgement, and to explore your thoughts and feelings with empathy.

My training is in the person-centred approach to psychotherapy. This is an approach that focuses on building a strong, equal, and therapeutic relationship between therapist and client. Rather than treating myself as an expert to give advice, I see you as the expert in your own experiences and work together with you to explore and understand yourself. My role is to act as a supportive third-party to facilitate that exploration and to encourage engagement with your feelings.

If you would like to book a session with me, or just learn more about my practice then please do get in touch using the "e-mail me" button above. I offer a free initial consultation if you would like to speak to me before committing to full sessions.

Member organisations

BACP
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.
