About me

Welcome to my profile. As a counselling psychologist, I am trained in a number of therapeutic approaches and tailor my approach to suit your needs. Whatever may be troubling you, I would look to provide a warm, considered and respectful reply. After reading this profile, should you wish to go ahead please do call or email me and we can arrange an initial meeting. Sessions are either in the centre of Oxford or the centre of Wantage, so do let me know which is more convenient for you.

I offer psychological therapy for personal development and a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties. Having had training in a number of therapeutic techniques and ideas enables me to consider a person’s difficulties from a number of perspectives and to offer therapy based on a person's needs and on current research evidence.

I have completed both undergraduate and masters qualifications in psychology at Oxford Brookes and Oxford Universities and a doctorate in psychology (PsychD in Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychology) at the University of Surrey. I am registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (the independent government appointed regulator of psychologists in the UK) and I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) which means you can expect high standards of psychological knowledge and expertise. It also means I am committed to high ethical standards of practice and professional development.

I work with clients using humanistic person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and having a keen interest in mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is an integral part of my practice.

I have experience working within several NHS and public service counselling and psychotherapy services in Oxfordshire and London, working with individuals with a broad spectrum of difficulties. I now practise privately and have a special interest in adult mental health, particularly difficulties that can arise with life stage transitions.

Making the initial contact can feel quite daunting for many people. If you do not feel that you wish to make an appointment, but have questions that you would like answered, then do email or call. If I am unable to take your call immediately, I may be with a client, so do leave a message on the answering machine and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Please be assured that all communication will be in the strictest confidence and should I need to leave a message for you, it will be discreet.

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Further information

Studies show that the relationship with the therapist is the single most important factor for a successful therapy. It is important to feel safe and comfortable in order to be able to trust and confide problems. The initial meeting generally is for sixty minutes and is an opportunity for you to tell me about what brings you to therapy and about your hopes and expectations. It is also an opportunity to meet and consider together if therapy would be helpful and if it is something you would like to do.

Accessibility

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.
