About me and my therapy practice
Seeking therapy can be a confusing process; one confounded by the fact that most come during a time of crisis. I provide a supportive, confidential space where we can think openly, free of judgement, about different aspects of you and your life. I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy, both once and twice a week at a private clinic in Summertown, Oxford.
Originally, I trained at the University of Oxford in psychodynamic psychotherapy over a period of four years, and have an ongoing research interest in lifespan development and personality disorder. I hold membership with UKCP, BACP and UPCA professional bodies.
I have worked across a wide range of clinical settings: private healthcare, NHS, universities, school and forensic settings. I have experience in primary residential settings, outpatients, secondary and tertiary education, working with families, groups and organisations, and in conducting psychological assessments within high risk environments. The focus of my work is adult psychotherapy, however I will accept ages 16+.
My first session
What to expect: in our initial appointment, I will seek to understand what is happening for you right now; how it may relate to past experiences and family history; and if our working together would be suited to your needs, or if another service would be more appropriate. It will give you an opportunity to build a knowledge of what my approach looks like, and to decide if you are happy with my way of working.
