Individuals or couples who want to explore relationship issues and work out what they want, whether in the relationship or out of it. I help clients identify patterns of destructive communication and rebuild connection. I work with individuals who need support with decision making about their relationship (or lack of one), who may be experiencing anxiety or low self -esteem as a result. Having worked extensively in the corporate sector for many years I also offer single session therapy for clients who feel they are at a career crossroads and would benefit from objective and constructive listening.

Often, individual difficulties are accompanied by the challenges of daily life, which make each person’s experience different and their therapeutic needs unique. Through short or long term therapy, I aim to support meaningful change in areas you would like to work on, with an understanding of the wider picture of how these issues may feature in daily life.

I can understand what it is like to feel lost and not know how to get back on track. I have experience of working with trauma, depression, anxiety and panic and I can offer you the support and perspective you need to get you to where you would like to be. The people I work with have come from many walks of life and may have experienced trauma such as sexual or physical abuse, bullying or emotional abuse. Other people I work with may have a chronic illness they are coming to terms with or they may have experienced loss or a life transition.

Psychotherapy, or talking therapy helps us identify aspects of our past and how they impacted on us throughout our lives and in the present day. Through explorations with a trained professional this can lead to shifts in how we think about and understand what has happened to us and also how to respond to others and to events in our lives moving forward. You will be encouraged to talk about whatever is on your mind and to bring up feelings and thoughts for us to look at together.

Counselling is my vocation and professional passion. I am of dual heritage and have a background in languages: Communicating and listening are at the heart of my practice. My training was in Integrative Counselling at the Minster Centre. This approach draws from the major therapeutic schools of thought. I think about what you feel on many levels and help you to find your own understanding. Whatever you wish to share, I give you time to reflect. I also work relationally. This means that the trusting partnership we develop will allow you to notice how you relate to yourself and others.

I provide a safe therapeutic space in which the problems and mysteries of being human can be explored respectfully and creatively. My aim is to bring insight and understanding to the challenges in your life, facilitating growth and change. My approach is collaborative but you would remain in control, determining the pace of therapy, the material you bring, when and how we address deeply painful or traumatic issues, the duration of your therapy and eventually how we end it. ​

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, and often when life has not been easy.

I am a fully qualified and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist and qualified supervisor of other therapists. I do not claim to have the answers, but I can offer you a quiet calm space in which you can take time to explore your life with someone who is non judgemental and who wants to support you in your goals.

Our minds can be confusing places at times. Especially when it comes to issues of mental health. It may feel hard to talk about certain things with friends and loved ones for many reasons, and it can feel like there’s no way to escape these problems. I can offer you a safe, confidential space to help you make more sense of your situation, help you throw your problems into a new light and perhaps give you a new perspective on what’s going on for you. I work in a holistic way, which takes into account you as a whole person and not just a problem that needs to be treated.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Oxford are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Oxford then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Oxford, or Child Psychologists in Oxford.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Oxford psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 Oxford 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.
