About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes when we are feeling unsure, lonely or down, to talk about what is bothering us is the first and most powerful step in starting to ease the weight of what we are carrying each day. Whether you want to explore your thoughts and feelings, want something to change in your life or don't know what you want other than to stop feeling the way you do - please get in touch.

All too often we judge ourselves harshly, berate ourselves for our decisions or life choices and what we really need is kindness, compassion and understanding. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and respectful approach to helping people to explore what is bothering them.

I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, stress, loss/grief, low self-esteem, relationship issues and life transitions. I believe in the innate power of individuals to create profound and lasting change in their lives and the most powerful tool I can provide as a therapist is an authentic and trusted relationship to facilitate this. 

Alongside my private practice, I also offer counselling services at Banbury Therapy Group and a charity supporting young people in Banbury.
