About me

Need help? Are you struggling with anxiety, separation or divorce, family issues, sexual abuse or a bereavement? Do you feel confused, anxious, worried,unable to cope, or just not sure what to do? Talking things through with an experienced, non-judgemental counsellor in a confidential environment may find you a way forward.

As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist I work in a tranquil, relaxing setting only 10-15 minutes drive from Oxford, and conveniently located within easy reach of Headington, Kidlington and Bicester.

I work with adults of all ages, presenting with a range of issues including bereavement and loss, stress, anxiety, family issues, relationship problems, Sexual abuse, separation and divorce, and depression. My training is in the Person Centred Approach, but I also draw on integrative skills, tailoring my techniques and approach to be the most appropriate and beneficial to the individual client.

I offer both short and long term counselling and psychotherapy, with the flexibility of day or evening appointments which are 1 hour in duration.

I also offer couples counselling, appointments are also 1 hour in duration.

As a registered member of BACP and working within the BACP ethical framework, I am fully committed to my own continual professional development,by regularly undertaking additional training courses to enhance my therapeutic work, to help clients bring about a positive change in their lives. I am also a qualified supervisor, and supervise other counsellors and therapists.

My positive supportive attitude communicates understanding, trust and acceptance to the client who is encouraged to see themselves in a more balanced and accepting way.This will allow the chance to change how you feel about life, find resolutions to the conflicts and difficulties you experience and make positive choices about your future.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
