About me

Hi, thanks for visiting my profile. 

There are a lot of us therapists out here, so below is some more information about me, how I work and the process in general.

A bit about me...

I am a qualified psychotherapist with over 8 years experience as a therapist, and 17 overall in the mental health field. I have an MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and am UKCP accredited.

I work primarily in-person in Thame (OX9) and North Oxford (OX2), and also see some clients online. I offer short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy to adults.

People come to see me when they are experiencing a challenging time in their life. This may relate to: past difficulties, troubled relationships, feeling disconnected from self, work-related stress, concerns for the future, or a sense that life simply isn't as as they want it to be.

How I work...

My approach is warm, empathic and non-judgemental. I offer a confidential space in which to build a trusting, supportive relationship where you can explore the issues, dilemmas and concerns you are facing.

I do not offer advice or solutions; aiming instead to work with you, at your own pace, to think about what is happening for you and the personal growth and change you want.

My theoretical framework is based on Relational Transactional Analysis (TA). TA is an accessible humanistic psychology that offers a set of maps to help us navigate the world alongside others. Some of these maps address relationships and communication, others focus on our psychological make-up to help understand our internal world, and more still look at the systems and context in which we live – families, organisations and cultures.

What happens next?

If you think we might be able to work together, send me an email and we can organise an initial conversation.

In my reply I will be clear about my current availability, as an essential first step is diary alignment.

If logistics/times work, I offer a free half-hour zoom call to find out some more about you, what you are looking for and to tell you how I work. Essentially, we are looking to establish if this might work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychotherapist, registered with the UKCP. I have been working as a therapist for over 8 years, and have worked in the mental health field for 17.

I have an MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, and am a Certified Transactional Analyst (an internationally recognised practitioner qualification in TA), with a specialism in Psychotherapy. 

In addition to the UKCP, I am also a registered member of BACP (MBACP) and am governed by both their Ethical Frameworks.

In support of my work, I receive regular supervision from a qualified and experienced supervisor.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
