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.

As a registered member of the BACP accrediting body, and holding membership with UKCP and UPCA, I offer psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy, both once and twice a week. 

I offer both time-limited and open ended therapy.

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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked across a wide range of clinical settings: private healthcare, NHS, universities and schools. I have experience in primary residential settings, outpatients, working with families, groups and organisations, and have conducted psychological assessments within high risk environments. I am qualified to work as a Child and Adolescent psychotherapist and an Adult psychotherapist.

Originally, I trained at the University of Oxford in psychodynamic psychotherapy over a period of four years, culminating in my research in lifespan development. I maintain a private practice in Summertown, Oxford.
