How can counselling help?

People come to counselling for many reasons. There might be a particular difficulty with a relationship, a bereavement or a big life event.  Or we might be feeling anxious, overwhelmed or angry and find ourselves struggling to manage day-to-day.

Counselling offers time and space to make sense of what has happened to us in the past, some of which might still be causing us difficulties in the present. It can be helpful to have someone from outside to talk to if we fear being judged by others or being a burden to those closest to us by continuing to share our worries with them. Working together with a therapist we trust can be really useful when we know we don’t feel ‘right’ but might be unsure why we feel this way or don’t know what to do about it. Therapy can help us to make sense of our feelings and experiences and to think about making any changes which might help.

I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place where we can work together.

Who am I?

I am an experienced counsellor working with adults. I am also a supervisor for qualified and trainee counsellors. I support clients with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship and work stress, low self-esteem, bereavement, self-harm, addiction, trauma, abuse, anger, chronic pain and illness. My own experience of being in therapy was very helpful to me and gives me added insight into supporting my clients’ experience of counselling.

I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre. The integrative approach means taking into account the whole person, which includes thoughts, feelings and bodily-felt symptoms as well as ‘transpersonal’ or spiritual beliefs. I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I abide by the BACP ethical framework and have regular clinical supervision.

How do we start?

There are many therapists and many different therapeutic approaches but what I believe is most important is building a trusting working relationship together. I offer an initial FREE phone conversation which gives you an opportunity to see if you feel I am the right person for you and allows me to see if I feel I have the right skills

to support you.


After that initial conversation, I offer you time to think about whether you would like to continue. If we then agree to work together, sessions usually take place once a week at the same time for 55 minutes.


I see clients in person during the day (Monday-Friday), in Headington and Summertown, Oxford, or online via Zoom.

I welcome clients from diverse backgrounds.


I provide in-person and online individual and group clinical supervision for qualified and trainee counsellors. I also provide non-managerial supervision for health professionals.
