About me

I am an accredited therapist offering a confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life.  I have several years of counselling experience having worked in various settings such as a school, university and a community counselling service. 

Some of the areas I have worked with are:

●       Struggles with relationships
●       Issues with identity
●       Loss and bereavement
●       Trauma
●       Difficulty in expressing feelings
●       Difficulties surrounding sexuality
●       Feeling low
●       Feelings of shame
●       Feelings of stress, anxiety and panic atacks

I work with individuals aged 16 years or over.  My counselling room is in my  home in Abingdon, and is on the ground floor.   There is off-road car parking space available. I can also offer online counselling. 

The first step is to arrange to meet for an 'intial session'.  This gives us an opportunity to see if we can work together.  Here you can tell me a bit about yourself and ask any questions you may have, and I can tell you more about the counselling I offer.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited member of UPCA and a registered member with BACP.  I have professional insurance and am regularly supervised.  I primarily abide by UKCP Code of Ethics.

I studied at Oxford University achieving the following qualifications:

PG Cert in Psychodynamic Counselling
PG Dip in Psychodynamic Practice
Master of Studies in Psychodynamic Practice

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
