About me

I offer short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy. My aim is to create a safe and confidential space in which you can explore your concerns and increase your self-understanding at your own pace and according to your individual needs. A secure therapeutic relationship, directed by what you want to bring to each session, is central to that process.

I practise in Abingdon and Wantage, both of which are easily accessible by car or public transport, and have free public parking.

For more information about my practice, please take a look at my website or contact me directly by email or phone.

Training, qualifications & experience

Registered member UKCP (registration no. 2011166972)

Postgraduate qualification in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, Site for Contemporary Analysis
Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Psychodynamic)
BA Hons (Oxon.)
I am currently in further postgraduate training as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist at the Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis.

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, working in private practice and as a school counsellor.

I have experience of working with a wide range of relationship and other issues, including depression, anxiety, stress, sexual and physical abuse, aloneness, family problems, infertility, bereavement, grief, and lack of self-esteem, but I am very conscious that every client is an individual, not just a collection of issues or problems, and base my approach on their unique experience.

As a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I abide by the UKCP's Code of Ethics and Professional Practice.
