About me

Being human necessitates experiencing life challenges and change such as birth, death, redundancy, family issues, depression, separation, sexual issues and illness.

Counselling creates a space for you to talk about your unique circumstances and what might be worrying or challenging for you.

Working with a counsellor can also create opportunities for self-exploration and development which may not have previously been available to you.

I offer brief, short or long-term therapy, according to your need.

My practice is close to free parking and public transport. It is within reach of Oxford, Abingdon, Didcot, Wallingford, Newbury and surrounding villages.

Arranging an initial session allows you to see how therapy feels and gives you a sense of how we work together. Contact me by phone or email.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist with a Certificate and Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.

I have worked with clients from different backgrounds on a range of issues, in private practice, counselling service and educational settings.

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP, I abide by a code of ethics and good 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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
