Need help? Are you feeling like there is nowhere left to turn? Do you feel confused, anxious, worried,unable to cope, or just not sure what to do? Talking things through with an experienced, non-judgemental counsellor in a confidential environment may find you a way forward.

As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist I work in a tranquil, relaxing setting only 10-15 minutes drive from Oxford and within easy reach of Bicester, Kidlington and Headington. I work with adults of all ages presenting with a range of issues including couples counselling, stress, anxiety, family issues, separation and divorce, relationship problems, sexual abuse and depression. My training is in the Person Centred Approach, but I also draw on integrative skills, tailoring my techniques and approach to be the most appropriate and beneficial to the individual client.

I offer both short and long term counselling and psychotherapy, with the flexibility of day or evening appointments which are 1 hour in duration.

Working within the BACP ethical framework, I am fully committed to my own continual professional development,by regularly undertaking additional training courses to enhance my therapeutic work, to help clients bring about a positive change in their lives.  
My positive supportive attitude communicates understanding, trust and acceptance to the client who is encouraged to see themselves in a more balanced and accepting way.This will allow the chance to change how you feel about life, find resolutions to the conflicts and difficulties you experience and make positive choices about your future.
