Approach & Specialist Areas:
As an attachment-based therapist, I view relationships with others as a key part of human development and growth, and understand that disruptions and difficulties in relationships, in both childhood and adulthood, and feelings of isolation can damage our ability to manage our lives and our selves. These disruptions and difficulties can affect us in a variety of ways of which we may be unaware. My work with clients involves facilitating an understanding of how much of one’s behaviour, and way of relating to others, is influenced by processes linked to such disruptions and difficulties. I consider the therapy to be ‘relational’ in that it is an endeavour in which the therapist and client are both mutually engaged and working together to effect change.

I have developed expertise in working with a range of clients from different cultural and national backgrounds with concerns as diverse as depression, anxiety, trauma, eating problems and abuse as well as emotional difficulties and problems of identity and the self. I also specialise in working with the transition to parenthood and issues around PND.

I use the EFT approach when working with couples. Attachment needs are present throughout the lifespan and viewing the adult couple relationship as an attachment relationship offers a perspective which views the difficulties and disruptions as a consequence of couples struggling to have a good enough, supportive attachment with one another. When a couples’ attachment feels insecure it can result in negative cycles of behaviour which prevent them from communication and connecting effectively. Working from this perspective, I endeavour to support couples to identify and understand their negative cycles and support them in unlocking the emotions fuelling this negative cycle to facilitate a move to a more secure and supportive attachment and way of relating.

Prior to working as a therapist, I worked as a management consultant and also as a research fellow in Education and Psychiatry. As such, I have a keen understanding of the impact of different environments on mental well-being as well as mental health issues themselves. I have worked in the NHS, private practice and with several charities specialising in fostering and adoption, refugees and stroke survivors and their carers.

Approach & Specialist Areas:
I provide a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment in which we will collaboratively explore your anxieties and concerns. Sometimes called “the talking cure”, it can be a time for healing emotional pain and coming to a resolution about the past. It can also be about understanding your present behaviour and working towards change. The opportunity to talk and offload with someone who listens and moreover hears is in itself deeply therapeutic.

My role is to work empathically with you to encourage greater personal awareness and insight, in order that you can make the life changes that you long for. I work with genuine respect for you and your life values, whilst offering alternative ways of understanding you and your life. It offers you a therapeutic alliance which facilitates personal and spiritual growth. It also encourages the development of the necessary inner resources and personal qualities which will support you to develop the freedom to live more fully.

I have worked for employee assistance programmes since 1996, working with a range of issues including work related stress.

Approach & Specialist Areas:
The psychodynamic approach to therapy focuses on helping us to identify and understand negative patterns of relating and behaving so we can begin to find better ways of coping with life's difficulties. As such, the work we do together involves thinking about what lies under the surface of thoughts, feelings and actions as a way of gaining greater self-awareness. It can involve thinking about past events and their impact on the present. Additionally, close attention is paid to the relationship between us in the counselling room as a way of throwing light on relationships in your everyday life.
Other approaches may also be integrated into the above (eg person-centred and elements of CBT) as and when appropriate, to best resolve your issues and meet your needs.

I am an experienced counsellor with practices in Witney and Oxford. I also have close links with the Oxford Women’s Counselling Centre (OWCC), initially as a counsellor and now as an assessor for the organisation. Prior to training as a counsellor I lectured in Psychology.

As a fully certified hypnotherapist, I use a combination of powerful techniques including Hypnotherapy, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and Time Line Therapy™ to maximise changes in your life. Hypnotherapy is an incredibly effective and versatile way of dealing with a wide range of issues, from anxiety and addictions to stress and phobias. It is only recently that medical research has begun to show the real benefits and power of hypnotherapy. Whether you want to quit smoking or lose weight or free yourself from irrational fears or phobias, hypnotherapy can help you. I am passionate about my work and my aim is to give you a caring, confidential and competitive Hypnotherapy service in a safe and relaxing environment. Helping you stop the things you don't want and start to enjoy and achieve the things you do.

Licensed Hypno-Band Practitioner: - The Hypno-Band could change your life forever. Imagine having the results usually achieved by having a surgical Gastric Band fitted but not having to go through surgery, and spending thousands of pounds! By using the Hypno-Band hypnotherapy system we create a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted! You will eat smaller portions and feel full. Lose Weight and keep it off! Over four sessions we take you through the process of having a gastric band fitted, only in your mind. By using suggestion and visualisation your mind will be convinced that your stomach has become smaller and that you need less food. By eating less and less often you will begin to lose weight. The process uses hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural techniques to help you achieve your ideal weight and stay there!
