Counsellor and Psychotherapist

Welcome to my website

I am a BACP registered psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. In addition to my private practice I work as a school counsellor in an Oxford preparatory school and as a bereavement counsellor and supervisor for Oxfordshire Cruse.


I trained as a bereavement counsellor with Oxfordshire Cruse in 2008 and have continued to work with them since then. In 2015 I qualified as a supervisor for Cruse. From 2008 - 2012 I trained as a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist at Rewley House, Oxford, which is part of the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education. I completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling in 2009, my Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Practice in 2011, and my MSt in Psychodynamic Practice in 2012.


I have 7 years clinical experience working with bereaved adults at Cruse and with young people with a range of difficulties during my training placement in a Wantage secondary school and currently in an Oxford preparatory school. In my private practice, I work in a quiet consulting room in my own home in South Oxford, a short walk from Oxford City Centre, where I see adults and young people.
