About me

I am a registered UKCP analytic psychotherapist and counsellor with over 20 years experience working with many different people from all walks of life.

I am experienced in working with Skype Zoom and FaceTime and work with people from different parts of the world as well as the UK.

I have been in private practice in Oxford for many years seeing people for both long-term analytic psychotherapy and short-term focused therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

From 1986 to 1990 I studied Psychoanalysis and Philosophy with the Philadelphia Association in London. I am formally accredited with the UKCP and a member of the Site for Psychoanalysis, a successor organisation of the Philadelphia Association.

Prior to training as a psychotherapist I worked for several years in the public sector as a senior social worker and as a community worker. I worked in mental health and then with children and families before moving on to become a manager. It was in this capacity that I developed my skills and resources as a supervisor and coach.

I have been practising as a psychotherapist since 1989 working with both short term and long term patients as well as supervising and training counsellors and psychotherapists. I also work as a coach and non managerial supervisor for a number of voluntary and statutory sector personal, including social workers, community workers and managers at all levels.

I have a Certificate of Qualification in Social Work (CQSW) and an MA in Social Policy and Sociology. I completed 5 years training in analytic psychotherapy and am fully accredited with the UKCP.

Accessibility

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.
