Life is often not easy; if you are facing a challenging period and are struggling to cope, then you are certainly not alone. People come to therapy for many different reasons; perhaps you feel stuck but are not quite sure why, you struggle with relationships or live in the shadow of past events. There is no such thing as a problem that is too small, too big or too ‘strange.’ You may have been finding things difficult for a long time or you may have experienced a sudden upheaval in your life. Either way, alongside my training and my own life experience I provide a non-judgmental and supportive space in which to confront any issues that you face.
I am a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist with a private practice in central Oxford and central Witney. I see clients for both long-term and short-term therapy and I have experience of working with a broad range of issues including addiction, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship problems, separation and trauma.
I offer a safe and non-judgemental space in which to think about your life. At the core of my practice is a belief in the importance of the therapeutic relationship and I count among my primary influences attachment-based psychotherapy, relational psychodynamic psychotherapy and body psychotherapy. I work with my clients to identify the areas that they particularly want to address and to identify the approach that they feel would be the most useful and meaningful to them.
Training, qualifications & experience
BACP accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre, London.
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.
