About me and my therapy practice
* I am currently offering online appointments and when appropriate I will be offering a combination of both face-to-face and online provision.
I have over 17 years of experience working in mental health. In addition to my private therapy and supervision role, I work for Oxford University as therapist, clinical supervisor and specialist mental health mentor supervisor. I also provide clinical supervision for the Riverside Counselling Service based in Oxfordshire. I gained my professional qualifications in counselling and psychotherapy from Oxford University in the psychodynamic modality. In addition to my counselling qualifications I have a ESRC funded Masters in diversity in Higher education. I also spend time working on fostering panels for the placement of 'looked after' children.
Over my years of practice I have become more integrative in my approach which now involves supporting people using short-term, pro-active and solution focused models. For example MBCT (mindfulness) CBT and other third wave models. Equally I offer long-term supportive psychotherapy as required.
My experience enables me to work across the age and gender spectrum with a range of difficulties including men's health and wellbeing and student issues as well as clients from more adverse backgrounds.
I can provide:
• Short and long-term 1-1 one counselling
• Clinical supervision 1-1, pairs and groups
• Specialist mentoring for students, this would involve a focus on managing the demands of study
I am warm and engaging, experienced therapist who works to provide a safe and non-judgmental space in which to explore confidentially, issues that are troubling you.
My first session
Prior to a first meeting I am happy to have a brief telephone conversation, free of charge to set up a first session. I charge for a no-obligation first meeting which will enable us to see if we feel comfortable working together. Should we find we are not best placed to work together, I would be happy to explore onward referral options. I am also happy to offer a flexible approach to accommodate your availability and circumstances where possible.
