Me Spring.jpg

I am a warm and compassionate integrative counsellor, registered with the BACP, who is passionate about helping people live a more enjoyable, meaningful and authentic life. I offer a safe and non-judgemental space where you can explore your issues and be yourself. 

Being an integrative counsellor means that I can use a range of methods to help you depending on your personality and situation. One of the central principles of my therapy is that I believe you hold the answers within yourself and I help you to find those answers.

Other tried and tested methods include:

  • Exploring the ‘here and now’ in the therapy room to pick up patterns and feelings

  • Supporting people to integrate body and mind as too often the two are not working together and this can have a detrimental affect on our health and wellbeing

  • Exploring transactions in relationships

  • Working creatively (for instance with art, stories or objects) to increase self-awareness and expression

  • As I am also a personal performance coach I can work in a very goal orientated way if appropriate.

I work in private practice at Banbury Therapy Centre, Abingdon Natural Health Centre and in central Oxford. Additionally, I volunteer for a low cost counselling service and for Sanctuary Housing with young people. I have also volunteered for a counselling service for survivors of sexual abuse.

I special expertise working with depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss, women’s issues, relationship issues, issues at work including stress, abuse, low self-esteem, young people’s issues (16+), identity, infertility and trauma.

Prior to becoming a counsellor I worked for many years in human resources so I have a great understanding of workplace stress and special insight should you be looking for a new career.

I understand that looking for counselling can be daunting so I like to be as helpful as I can be. Please feel free to phone (07967 633126) or email ( with any questions. I offer both long term and short term counselling and evening as well as daytime appointments may be possible. My face to face counselling is £45 for 50 minutes, apart from the first session which is £25 for 50 minutes to enable you to find out if I am the right counsellor for you. I also offer telephone counselling which is £35 for 50 minutes.
