About me

Thank-you for visiting my page. It is a brave step to seek counselling but in the long run can be so rewarding. I offer Integrative counselling either online or in person in the Oxford area. Person-centred counselling is close to my heart as Roger’s core conditions of unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence are important in the learning to accept ourselves for who we truly are. My journey to become a counsellor started with low self-worth and making life decisions that kept me trapped in a reoccurring cycle. If you feel unheard, unseen or like you need someone kind and who won’t judge you, I will aim to support you. Together we can tailor the therapy to individual need, from Person-centred to CBT interventions my 5 years of training can help to work toward change. I charge £70 per 50 minute session but a sliding scale will be considered for those in receipt of benefits or low income. Please do not see struggling financially as a barrier to therapy. I would be happy to discuss. 

Warm and friendly counsellor with empathy and compassion. I have worked with low self-esteem, bereavement, addiction and as a survivor of domestic violence feel I can offer the empathy and emotional support needed to re-build trust and self-worth.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
