About me and my therapy practice


Contemplating your first counselling session can be scary can't it?

Please let me put you at ease, assuage those worries, and reassure you that my approach is one of warmth, kindness, acceptance and understanding.

My passion continues to be working from a psychodynamic counselling base, however my style has evolved  and benefitted from the addition of working creatively through art-therapy and play, where required and agreed. 

Thus I enjoy the ability to work collaboratively with each unique individual, providing you with the autonomy to choose what feels right in your therapy experience.

I have worked extensively with adults of all ages and from all walks of life, within business coaching and mentoring, as well as within the performing-arts including at The Brit School.

Practice description

I offer private clients the opportunity to choose face-to-face sessions from practices based in 

  • Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
  • Summertown, near Oxford, Oxfordshire
  • Wantage, Oxfordshire

Sometimes work and life can limit ones ability to drive for regular sessions therefore I can also provide sessions by video or by telephone.

My first session

All sessions with me last for 50 minutes.

Initially we will meet for an 'assessment' which means that you can begin to speak about some of your history as well as decide if working with me 'feels right'.

Following that we will think together about whether to work in a longer-term way in what is often referred to as 'open-ended'.

Alternatively in a time-limited, or short-term way. This can be crisis counselling when you just need someone to talk to for three to six sessions, or indeed up to twelve sessions.
