Welcome to my page. I am a fully accredited BACP counsellor and psychotherapist first UKCP registered in 2001. I offer a peaceful, safe, non-judgment space for you to explore anything you wish in complete confidence. I believe that no problem is too small nor too large to bring to therapy. So often a problem shared can be a problem halved. The simple act of exploring, with a neutral party can reveal new solutions.
I offer both short term and long term therapy.
I currently counsel children in two Oxfordshire primary schools in addition to seeing adults in North Oxford and Cowley.
In the past, I have counselled individuals with a broad range of concerns in an NHS GP surgery in Wandsworth, NHS hospital outpatients, as well as couples at London Marriage Guidance, and individuals at Kensington and Chelsea College of Further Education.
Training, qualifications & experience
I began my training in 1996 with a foundation course in person centered counseling at Metanoia Institute, and training by CRUISE, in bereavement care.
I hold an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Regent's College and a Diploma in Supervision of Counsellors from CCPE.

More recently I did a post-qualifying Certificate for previously qualified adult therapists to Counsel Children, with Place2Be, 2018.
