I have been working for over 20 years with people who have a wide range of issues including, relationship and work problems, low self esteem, addictions and other forms of self harm, abuse, eating disorders, bereavement as well as people who suffer from stress and anxiety or feel low, depressed and suicidal. I am also qualified to work with couples and groups about relationships. Most of my training and work as a counsellor has been about really learning to listen to people, hearing the ‘music’ behind their words and sensing their deepest feelings, hurts, joys and fears as it is then that therapeutic healing can occur.

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.)

Hello and welcome. Making the decision to begin therapy or counselling can be anxiety provoking. It is important, therefore, to find the right therapist or counsellor for you, as this is a vital element of the psychotherapeutic process. Finding a therapist or counsellor you feel safe with and with whom you have a sense of connection will enable you to explore the issues. People of all ethnicities and social backgrounds seek therapy for a plethora of reasons, and I welcome patients whatever their culture, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, or gender.

You may have been troubled by something for a while and have tried talking to friends or family, but how you feel hasn’t changed. You may be kept awake by anxiety or stress but you can’t put your finger on what it is that is keeping you awake. Or in fact you do know what is troubling you but have never been able to talk about it. Major changes in your life may have created a loss within the person you once were. Perhaps you feel that you lack purpose and that everything is hopeless. We as humans are very good at pushing things down inside, locking them in a box and marking them DO NOT OPEN, but eventually the box breaks open.

Sometimes life can be tough and even the smallest things can seem overwhelming. Taking the first step to reach out for help can be hard. When we feel overwhelmed, stuck or out of balance, counselling can help support you through these difficult times. I offer a warm and compassionate space where you can explore what is going on for you confidentially without fear or judgement. You may already know what you want to explore, or you may just have a vague sense of what feels wrong. I can support you to explore your own unique experiences and to find a way forward.

It is my belief that we all have very unique and individual reasons and circumstances surrounding our issues and that taking the step to share them with someone else can be intimidating. Which is why I am open to working in a non-judgemental way, with anyone who feels they want to share their thoughts and feelings in a safe and nurturing environment. I offer face to face, telephone or online video counselling via WhatsApp or Zoom because I realise that not everyone wants to be in the same room as their therapist or are able to travel.

You may be feeling troubled by symptoms of anxiety and depression, confused and conflicted in relationships or wanting to develop something within yourself in order to live a fuller and more satisfying life. Therapy can offer you a safe and positive space in which we can compassionately explore and work through areas of conflict and confusion. Facing painful and conflicted feelings together can undo anxiety and misery and free you to become who you really are as a person, and to get the most out of life.

I offer help with issues such as anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, relationships, stress and trauma. I work with individuals aged 18 and over in Buckingham and surrounding areas. My counselling room is located in Buckingham. Where appropriate, I encourage my clients to take some of their counselling outdoors. Sometimes we walk and talk, sometimes we sit. This allows you, if you wish, to engage creatively with the therapeutic healing from nature to complement your therapy. This is proving to be very effective, with some good outcomes.

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.
