About me

Welcome to my page. I am a fully accredited BACP counsellor and psychotherapist 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 as well as supervision to other counsellors.

I have worked with children in two Oxfordshire primary schools in addition to seeing adults in North Oxford.

In the past, I have worked with individuals with a broad range of concerns in the 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.

I completed a training at London Marriage Guidance in couple and marital therapy 2004

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

I am a member of British Infertility Counselling Association and have completed their foundation course.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.
