About me

Asking for help is a massive and anxiety provoking step that takes courage.  You may be asking yourself "What is it that I need help with?"

There are many reasons why we turn to counselling;

A desire to be heard and valued.

Loss of direction and purpose in life.

A better understanding of how we feel, think and behave in relation to ourselves and others.

Feeling stuck.

Struggling with overwhelming mental health issues and disorders.

Finding coping mechanisms to roll with the changes life throws at us.

Grief and loss of identity and roles that bereavement brings.

What can I offer to you that is different to what others on this website are offering? We all work differently because we are all unique beings with our own thoughts, feelings and behaviours.  Looking around and meeting with a few therapists will give you a clearer idea of who you feel comfortable, honest and safe to be in your most vulnerable state with.

I want you to feel heard.

I want you to feel seen.

I want you to feel valued for who you really are.

I run my own Private Practice, Banbury Counselling Room, in the Center of Banbury Town.  Offering a discreet, confidential, non-judgemental and genuine experience of self-exploration and discovery.

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.
