About me and my therapy practice
* I am currently offering online appointments.
I have over 18 years of experience working in mental health. In addition to my private therapy and supervision role, I work for Oxford University in several positions. These include student and staff therapist, group facilitator, clinical supervisor, and service manager of the specialist mental health and neurodiversity mentor team. I provide clinical supervision for the Riverside Counselling Service based in Oxfordshire and Oxford Brookes University's mentor team. I have also worked for the mental health charity Mind.
I gained my professional qualifications in counselling and psychotherapy from Oxford University in the psychodynamic modality. In addition to my counselling qualifications, I have an ESRC-funded Masters in the Sociology of Education focusing on diversity. I also work 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, proactive, and solution-focused models. Equally, I offer long-term psychotherapy as required.
My experience enables me to work across the age and gender spectrum with various difficulties, including men's health and wellbeing, and clients from more adverse backgrounds.
I can provide:
• Short and long-term 1-1 one counselling for adults
• Clinical supervision 1-1, pairs and groups
• Specialist mentoring for students, this would involve a focus on managing the demands of study
I am a warm, engaging, experienced therapist who works to provide a safe and non-judgmental space to explore confidential issues troubling you. While I have a lot of experience working with students and staff in a university setting, I am equally experienced at working with a wide range of clients.
My 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.
