I have helped clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, disordered eating, relationship difficulties, chronic pain, self-harm, bereavement, and other forms of loss.
I have been counselling young people and adults since 2011. I trained at the University of Edinburgh and am an integrative practitioner, drawing primarily upon person-centred and psychodynamic approaches to therapeutic change. I have worked in a variety of organisational settings, including The Junction, The Listening Centre, Oxford Brookes University, Cherwell School, and Cheney School.
Having originally trained in anthropology (Swarthmore College/University of Chicago), I am keenly aware of the larger social and environmental context in which we operate as individuals. I enjoy reflecting with clients on how their place in the larger scheme of things has shaped them and, in turn, the ways in which they can transform the world around them.
In spite of the heaviness of such issues, I aim to provide my clients with a space that is playful and imaginative, fun as well as serious.
In addition to face-to-face sessions in East Oxford, I can provide online counselling via Zoom. I work with young people as well as adults.
I charge £15 for an inital consultation meeting, which lasts half an hour. I will explain more about the way I work, answer any questions you might have and learn more about your situation and what draws you to therapy. If we agree that there is a good fit between your needs and what I have to offer, then we can schedule our first session.
The fee for each 50-minute session is £60. Some concessionary rates are available.
Please do get in touch if you would like to learn more.
