About me

I am a chartered counselling psychologist, specialising in cognitive-behavioural, humanistic and integrative approaches to working with my clients. I bring warmth, empathy and a collaborative style to my work, enabling clients to discuss their problems and what they hope to achieve in therapy.

I offer general counselling for the treatment of a variety of common problems, including anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, phobias, bereavement, loss, addictions and eating disorders.

I have particular special interests and expertise in anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, bereavement and loss.

I practice in Oxford and Central London (Farringdon). It is sometimes possible to undertake home-visits within Oxfordshire and Central London, as well as Walking Therapy sessions. I am also able to provide online support via Skype or phone to supplement face-to-face sessions.

Having previously worked as a middle and senior manager in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, I bring real-world understanding of the experiences and pressures of life that can lead to psychological distress or act as a block to fulfilling potential.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MSc in Psychology and a doctorate in Counselling Psychology.

In addition to my core person-centred, cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic training, I have received specialist training in Bereavement, Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for eating disorders (CBT-E) and Behavioural Couples Therapy for addictions.

Since 2010 I have worked in hospital and community settings as a psychological therapist, in both the NHS and charitable sectors, working with clients with addictions, eating problems, depression, anxiety, phobias and experiences of bereavement and loss. I am actively engaged in research into the experience of men with eating disorders and am contributing to a pioneering initiative to facilitate mental-health support at a community level.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also provide Behavioural Couples Therapy (BCT), aimed at supporting relationships where one partner is recovering from an addiction. BCT is currently the only couples therapy endorsed by NICE.
