About me

Individual and Couples Counselling and Psychotherapy and Supervision in The Cotswolds and Oxford.

I am a psychotherapist and counsellor in private practice in Bledington, Gloucestershire.

I have worked with individuals, couples and groups for over twenty-five years.

My approach is integrative and relational, drawing on the main humanistic traditions, as well as current neuro-scientific, psychoanalytic and object relations theory.

I work with individuals, and couples, both short and long term.

I have run clinical seminars on somatic work for psychotherapy training organisations, and occasionally offer workshops with a somatic theme.

I offer supervision for psychotherapists, counsellors and coaches.

I am a full member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy
(Registration Number 07519290)
and I am accredited by the United Kingdom Association of Humanistic Psychology Practitioners.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a graduate of Spectrum Training, where I gained my Diploma in the major humanistic and integrative psychology modalities.

I am a member of the Panel of Counsellors of the Occupational Health Service of the University of Oxford.

I have provided counselling services for Haringay District Council, and for Oxfordshire PCT's via the Oxford Counselling and Psychotherapy Service.

As well as providing individual coaching and consultancy in the corporate sector, I have led fixed duration groups for men on sexuality, and an ongoing group for men and women. Until recently I ran an ongoing therapy group for men.

I have provided consultancy services for Oxford colleges.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
