About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.

I work as a psychodynamic therapist and I specialise in Intensive Short term Dynamic Therapy (ISTDP).

My therapeutic approach relies on us creating a space where we can engage in an active collaboration.

I will rely on you to clarify what is going on for you and together we will endeavour to make sense of it with caring attention. I will invite you to take a compassionate attitude towards your self, your thoughts and emotional states.

Progress is achieved through curiosity about and acceptance of your internal experience, enabling you to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of how your mind functions and how you relate to your body, yourself and the people around you.

Session length and treatment duration are tailored to meet your specific needs.

I offer support for a variety of issues including stress, anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, and relationship difficulties.

The counselling room in which I practice is situated on the ground floor of a health clinic. It is quiet and discrete, just a few minutes walk from bus stops going in and out the centre of Oxford. There is also free 2-hour parking in the vicinity.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an MSt in Psychodynamic Practice from the University of Oxford.

I am fully accredited and registered member of the UPCA and UKCP. I am also a registered member of the BACP. I abide by the code of practice of these professional organisations.

I am a trained Cruse Bereavement Counsellor and worked for 4 years with Oxford Cruse.
I have worked in secondary and higher education settings and for the Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
I have experience of working with people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds and from a wide age range, from 11 to 18 years old to mature adults.

In addition to English, I can offer therapy in French and also can engage in Italian.
