About me


I understand how nerve-racking entering therapy can be. As an experienced and qualified CBT Therapist and Counsellor, I work collaboratively with you to offer a tailor-made approach depending on your individual needs. At all times we will work at your pace, with compassion and confidentiality at the core of what we do.

I have private practices based across Oxfordshire as well as considerable experience within major charities focusing on such areas as Mental Health, Bereavement, Autism, Suicide and Crisis Support.


I support clients with a variety of needs, specialising in Depression, Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Phobias, Self Esteem, Relationship issues, Bereavement and Loss as well as having a particular interest in Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Ethical Standards

Professional standards are incredibly important to me. As a member of both professional bodies the BACP and BABCP, I maintain high standards and work within a strict ethical framework.


In life, we can be faced with many different emotional challenges ranging from such things as loss, bereavement, Relationship Issues and changes to our situation or personal circumstances. I work using a variety of approaches depending on the client and their needs and preferences, including Person Centered Counselling, Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Having worked in Directorial and Senior Management positions for over 20 years, I have firsthand experience of seeing how people’s complex needs can impact their everyday lives. This can lead to a sense of desperation and helplessness along with a sense of mental or emotional exhaustion. Often people are unable or afraid to reach out and ask for help, either at work or to those closest to them. I am able to offer a professional specialist service, both independent and separate from your every day life. But together we can work on those things that often affect you the most.

I help you explore your options so you can make decisions that are right for you.

Please feel free to contact me by email or telephone for a completely confidential and no obligation chat.
