I am an integrative therapist who works with young people (age 16 plus) and adults. I am passionate about supporting mental health and work hard to help clients overcome difficulties and day-to-day challenges. I am committed to empower positive change in individuals and improve their wellbeing.
I offer a safe and non-judgmental place where people can be themselves; where they can bring and share their experiences, and look at how these particular situations affect their lives.
Through active listening, I will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I will follow your lead. Through our talks, I will be able to gain insight into your problems and personal circumstances. I will help you understand where your difficulties come from and, when appropriate, I will gently challenge you and provide a different perspective. Together, we will work through layers of emotions and behaviours, to help you face the challenges and regain the control of your feelings and actions.
I aim to develop strong therapeutic relationship with clients from all walks of life, based on trust and respect. I genuinely believe that every person is unique and has capacity to change, and can overcome their struggles with therapy. I help individuals work through difficulties at their own pace, whilst supporting their emotional wellbeing. I champion their improvement and aid them to find a place, where they would like to be.
I am a relational therapist. I approach every client with empathy and care. I will support you on your path and help you regain your strength and achieve your healing goals.
I have worked with individuals who were struggling with various issues: self-worth, confidence, child abuse, anxiety, relationship and family issues, trauma, sexuality diversity, perfectionism, panic attacks and loss.
I offer face to face appointments in Abingdon and online sessions via Zoom.
I offer a free 15-20 minutes initial consultation via zoom or phone so you can get a sense of whether working together would be suitable and right for you.

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.
