About me

Sometimes when we are feeling unsure, lonely or down, to talk about what is bothering us is the first and most powerful step in starting to ease the weight of what we are carrying each day. Whether you want to explore your thoughts and feelings, want something to change in your life or don't know what you want other than to stop feeling the way you do - please get in touch.

All too often we judge ourselves harshly, berate ourselves for our decisions or life choices and what we really need is kindness, compassion and understanding. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and respectful approach to helping people to explore what is bothering them.

I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, stress, loss/grief, low self-esteem, relationship issues and life transitions. I believe in the innate power of individuals to create profound and lasting change in their lives and the most powerful tool I can provide as a therapist is an authentic and trusted relationship to facilitate this.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work with adults adolescence and couples. Alongside private practice, I am employed at Banbury Therapy Group, where I work as a counsellor and a Wellness at Work trainer.

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.
