About me

I am an experienced, qualified counsellor and psychotherapist working in Wantage, Oxfordshire. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and have worked for a number of years with both charitable organisations as well as private practice. I am an integrative psychotherapist, which means I use a range of modalities and techniques to help clients. I believe we are all individuals and work through problems differently. I tailor my therapy to work with the client and respect that individuality.

Whether you want to explore a specific issue, want support during a difficult period in your life, or want to explore your past experiences more in-depth, I provide both short-term and long-term therapy to suit your needs.  I offer a safe and confidential environment in which we can explore the basis of any problems or anxieties which may be getting in the way of living a happy and fulfilling life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working in a number of areas with a wide range of cultures and clients. I spent a year training at the Wantage Counselling Service before embarking on a five year psychotherapy diploma course at the Bridge Pastoral Foundation. During this time I also trained with Cruse bereavement charity.

I am a member of the BACP and continue to work with several charity organisations. I also provide training in courses on various areas of interest, such as dream work and the use of art in psychotherapy.
