My Approach

I like to work creatively if possible, but will follow whichever way is best for you - some people like to simply talk. I am happy to do online sessions or face to face, given the current situation with Covid.

About Me

Sometimes life can just feel overwhelming, and we can feel lost. Maybe there's been a loss, or something difficult to deal with. Sometimes patterns reoccur from the past, or we need to face something that can't be avoided any more. I believe that we all need meaning, connectedness, pleasure and satisfaction from our lives, and often this is sadly lacking.

Counselling and psychotherapy can help with these things. I provide a boundaried, safe place to talk about, and explore, your feelings, and work out anything you'd like to change in your life.

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, and have been working one to one with people both short and long term for nearly 25 years. In my counselling and psychotherapy practice in a beautiful area just outside Oxford, I work with people who want to discuss things such as stress, bereavement, relationship issues or depression. In working through these issues in counselling, a more fulfilled and happier life is possible.

I have also taught counselling, am a supervisor and run workshops for therapists and coaches. I co-founded and was a Director of a local orgqanisation which trains people in becoming counsellors, wrote most of the course material there and was a Programme Director and course tutor on the Diploma course.

I am accepted by Bupa private health insurance companies to provide therapy for their members.

On a personal note, I really love my work. Whilst people often have painful and sometimes harrowing things to tell me, and may be in a very difficult time of their life, it is so inspiring to see them deal with it, change what they need to change and come through it, often in a much better state than before the difficulty. It is so rewarding - a privilege, really - to be alongside them as they find the courage and inspiration to deal with whatever it is that is troubling them. I also learn a lot myself and am usually immensely moved by our meetings.

I also believe in developing myself and have completed and qualified in a 3 year course in Pesso Boyden, a new approach to therapy which is extremely effective. I'm now one of only 10 accredited therapists in the UK using this powerful method, It's a very effective and beautiful method of therapy - come and try it!

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I have much experience of dealing in dealing with all sorts of abuse - physical, emotional and sexual.
I myself have a chronic illness and have worked on it a lot in my own therapy, so have a deep understanding of what that is like.
I am interested in how spirituality can support us in times of difficulty. I mean this term to be wider than 'religion'.
I provide supervision for other counsellors and therapists, and have a Diploma and 10 years' expereince in doing this.
