My Experience

I have had my own Private Practice at the WellBeing Clinic, Oxford since 1998. I have also worked in the NHS since 1996. I started as a Counsellor in a Stress Management Clinic within a GP Practice, then expanded my work to Counselling people with mild to moderate Psychological Problems. Currently I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Teacher in Talking Space, Oxfordshire's IAPT Service, providing CBT and Mindfulness to people in Primary Care through the NHS.

I treat a wide range of problems including depression and low self esteem, stress, anxiety and worry, panic, social anxiety and specific phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder including distressing, intrusive thinking, PTSD and trauma.

I also help people experiencing difficult life events and transition, including relationship difficulties and loss, leaving home, retirement and other changes which require some level of readjustment.

Other areas of experience have included Family Mediation, mediating separating couples, and families with communication difficulties, Children's Support Worker and Youth Counsellor.

My Qualifications

I studied Psychology at Reading University, and then went on to complete a Diploma In Counselling with CSCT at Westminster College in Oxford. I then specialised in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at the Centre for Stress Management in London, Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre and Reading University.

I endeavour to keep my knowledge and skills up to date by attending training on a regular basis. In 2010, I passed with Merit a Post Graduate Diploma in Evidence Based Psychological Therapies at Reading University, and in 2014 I completed training for Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy at Oxford Mindfulness Centre.

I am an Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP Acc), a Graduate member of the British Psychological Society (MBPSs), and a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
