About me

About me: I am a registered psychotherapist and a registered dietitian and i can work in either capacity or else both in combination. I abide by the ethical and professional codes of conduct of the United Kingdom council of psychotherapy (UKCP) and the health professions council (HPC) respectively.

As an Integrative psychotherapist: I draw upon a blend of theories and I help individuals explore and integrate different aspects of themselves.

As a dietitian: I use scientific, up-to-date research on food, health and disease which I translate into evidence-based practical guidance, tailored to the individual and their lifestyle.

Location: I see clients in Kennington, OX1, South Oxford.

Training, qualifications & experience


In dietetics, I have experience most fields including for example, diets for diabetes, heart disease, obesity and over-weight, eating disorders, and other eating distress. I am currently working part time as a mental health dietitian in Oxford health NHS trust. I have worked as a visiting lecturer at Kings College, University of London for 10 years where I taught undergraduate and post-graduate dietitians in communication skills. I qualified as a psychotherapist in November 2009 with over 600 hours of client hours accumulated in the voluntary sector and in an NHS setting. I have been running my own private practice since 2009.     .

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.
