About me

I am a qualified Counsellor with extensive experience and I am Associate Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy No.730216 (BACP) and an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society No.VV00P02 (NCS).
My private practice is located in Oxford (2 miles Southeast of the city centre of Oxford) with easy access from the Eastern Bypass Road.

I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy for adolescents and adults, in a confidential and supportive environment, in which you can feel completely at ease to talk about your thoughts and feelings – and be understood. I always want to make sure that my clients will benefit from my professional and non-judgmental service. I meet my clients in a warm and accepting environment, honoring each client as an individual.

I am trained in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I also use a variety of talking therapies including Person-centred therapy, Psychodynamic approach, Solution-focused brief therapy and Gestalt techniques. I consider that every client is unique, so my approach is tailored to fit each person's individual needs.

I am working as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2004 when I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Psychology. During my time at university I also completed certified courses in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic therapy and Gestalt therapy. More recently, I have undertaken a two-year Diploma course in Counselling and Psychotherapy leading to accreditation as a counsellor by the National Counselling Society.

Through the years, working with different clients, I developed quite extensive practical and training experience in the areas of relationships, depression, anger management, traumas, phobias and addictions.

The most common issues which I also see with my clients are: relationship issues, anxiety, depression, stress, anger management, eating disorders, low self-esteem, drug and alcohol problems. Please take a look at the other different areas of counselling which I deal with.

I work quite well with clients experiencing Gambling addiction, Video Games addictionand Internet addiction and I have achieved good results with clients who have been literally obsessed by their passion for Gambling and playing Video games. Therefore the methods in my work are informed by my practical experience.

I offer FREE initial consultation session as an opportunity for you and me to see if we can work well together and to explain myself better what techniques I use in my work with my clients and what will be the possible outcomes from our sessions.

Often, it can be difficult to talk to those close to you (e.g. friends and immediate family members) about your psychological issues, as they often struggle to remain impartial. Sometimes support from a professional therapist is needed so that you can express yourself to someone who will not be shocked, overwhelmed or judgmental about what you have to say.
It can be surprising how valuable it can be to have a safe space where you can be helped to explore your own thoughts, responses, perceptions and feelings.
As a professional therapist and counsellor I can help you to find new possible models and ways of looking at and experiencing problematic emotions, relationships and situations.
