Are you looking for a safe space with an experienced trauma-informed therapist? I offer CBT & EMDR to mothers and parents to tackle low self-esteem, anxiety, & trauma/ PTSD. Perhaps you are having strong reactions to things, or maybe you are struggling with anxiety, intrusive thoughts, or nightmares. You might be having trouble sleeping or issues with food or body image. Maybe you feel disconnected, irritable, guilty, and not the parent/ partner/ person that you want to be. When things feel tough, working with someone who you feel 'gets it' and knowing the space is safe and free from judgement is really important.

As well as a degree in Psychology and Counselling, I have diplomas in treating Addiction (my original interest) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Parts 1, 2, and 3 and a Supervision Diploma. My time is split between working for the Priory Wellbeing Centre in Oxford and in private practice locally. I use EMDR almost exclusively to work with single incident and developmental trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder with children, adolescents and adults. It is recognised in the N.I.C.E. guidelines as the treatment of choice for trauma and PTSD, and I find it to be highly effective!

It is really important to find the right therapist for you. At some point in our lives, most of us need an opportunity to share, explore, understand and accept our individual life experiences. Counselling can offer you that opportunity. I believe that there is nothing too big or too small to bring you to therapy. Sometimes our days are consumed managing the day to day and we often find it difficult to address the real issues. Therapy gives you the space to look at it all.

Hello, and thank you for reading my profile. Are you looking for long-term, in-depth, psychotherapy? Or do you have a particular issue you need to explore in counselling? Perhaps you're a qualified practitioner looking for a clinical supervisor. I could be that person for you, if we find we are a good fit. Whichever best describes you, my work is underpinned with an understanding of spirituality as a personal jorney into the nature of suffering. I think of spirituality as a pathway to self-development. Specifically, I work with mindfulness and Buddhist psychology to explore your current state of being, in mind, body and spirit.

Life is challenging. Many times in our lives we will be able to take on these challenges and find our own way through, but sometimes we can feel stuck or overwhelmed and they can feel like mountains. Perhaps you’re struggling with persistent anxious thoughts, feelings of hopelessness, relationship issues, navigating loss or trauma, experiencing addiction, or fertility or family difficulties…..please know you’re not alone. Together, and at your pace, we can explore the challenges you are facing now, gently turn over the stones of experience, with patience and compassion, to bring about new awareness and balance in your life.

Psychotherapy offers a unique experience. We start with a consultation process which will give you an opportunity to find out about this therapy and working with me by having an experience of what it will be like. This will help us with considering if this is the right way forward for you. Ideally we will meet a couple of times, and begin to understand the nature of some of your difficulties. Together we can discuss both the type of therapeutic approach and a plan for moving forward. If it looks like I might not be the right person to help you, then we can consider a referral to a different clinician or way of working.

Sometimes it can feel as if nobody understands us or our challenges. I wonder if a particular change, loss or relationship has left you disconnected from others? Perhaps you are facing a crossroads, feeling stuck or uncertain? If you are experiencing a sense of prolonged anxiety, low mood or find yourself trying to navigate through a mixture of unsettling thoughts, taking the time to share your story in a safe space may help you find a way forward. I endeavour to provide a supportive listening relationship to enable you to explore aspects of your life causing worry, sadness or stress.

I believe that each person is unique. Therefore, therapy needs to be tailored to the individual. Some people may prefer an open space for them to talk, taking the time to reflect on their experiences, whereas others may need something more structured, with the hope of learning effective coping strategies. Some may want a bit of both. There is not a one size fits all. I draw from evidence-based modalities of therapy, such as CBT, DBT, Psychodynamic, and Person-Centered to create a therapeutic plan tailored to the client and their goals.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
