I offer a calm, confidential and non-judgmental space in which to talk over whatever's troubling you, either as an individual (£55-£60) or as a couple (£70-£75). I am also a clinical supervisor (£60-£65). If there’s something on your mind that’s getting in the way of you leading your life the way you want to, then we can look at that together to get a good understanding of how it affects you, and the changes you might like to make. (Evening sessions 6-8pm are charged at the slightly higher rate.)

I am also qualified to work with couples and groups about relationships.

Most of my work has been in short-term CBT/ACT with the NHS and insurance companies helping adults with stress, anxiety, depression, perfectionism, self-esteem, and PTSD. My main focus for CPD in the past couple years has been working with trauma. However, as I am currently only working remotely, I only take cases of simple PTSD/trauma such as one-off traumas. I prefer to help clients with complex, multiple, and/or long-term traumas in-person and long-term, but that is not currently a possibility for me. In my 20+ years of working as a psychotherapist, I have also helped people with relational difficulties.

Sometimes feelings can be overwhelming to hold alone and you might want to share this with someone who is trained to listen, who offers a safe and nurturing space. Changes in your life may have created a loss of the person you once were. Perhaps you feel that you lack purpose and you would like more meaning in your life. You may have conflicting feelings, or what once seemed to make sense may have become confusing. Situations may be familiar, yet uncomfortable and you may be wondering why you can’t move forward.

I utilise a blend of positive psychotherapeutic enquiry and solution focussed approaches, to identify and reframe the cause of limiting beliefs and behaviours. I tailor my approach and work with individuals and couples. Whether you need to overcome a traumatic experience, difficulties in relationships, self esteem, anxiety or coaching to provide skills to transition through life, manage a situation or perform at your best. Building an independent, safe and trusting environment for you to explore issues and challenges in life: both work and/or personal is important for me.

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed, stuck, lost or confused. Counselling can help you make better sense of your thoughts and feelings and find a way through your challenges. I believe you already have all you need in you to be who and how you want to be. Change is possible if you want it to be, you may just need a helping hand to see what's getting in the way. I'd like to help you better understand yourself, so you can develop the self-compassion and strategies you need to thrive.

When life feels messy seeking help takes courage and strength. You might be feeling overwhelmed in your daily life, or experiencing complications in your relationships. Maybe you have experienced a life-changing event like a loss, a divorce, a betrayal, an illness, stress, or a family conflict. Perhaps you're worrying about your son or daughter and need some clarity. I work with adults & young people (16+) wanting to reflect on thoughts, feelings and behaviours, to understand some of the unanswered questions buzzing around our busy minds. In time, things become clearer & positive changes can be made.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Banbury?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Banbury specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
