Welcome

I am a registered UKCP analytic psychotherapist and counsellor with over 20 years experience working with many different people from all walks of life. I have been in private practice in Oxford for many years seeing people for both long-term analytic psychotherapy and short-term focused therapy.

Sometimes people find themselves deeply unhappy, perhaps without knowing what is wrong. Almost everyone has this kind of experience sometime in their lives and, even if they can’t identify an obvious reason, they may find themselves overwhelmed by powerful feelings and thoughts some of which don’t seem to be connected with a particular event. Sometimes people find themselves unable to break out of old patterns some of which may be damaging to themselves and to the people around them.

A person may not quite know what is wrong or what is causing them distress and unhappiness, but there is a feeling that they have lost their way and can’t get back to a sense of who they are. Talking with a therapist at this point in their life maybe extremely valuable.

I work with a wide range of problems such as

  • anxiety and depression,
  • relationship problems,
  • marital counselling,
  • life crisis and transitions,
  • eating disorders,
  • low self esteem,
  • loss and bereavement.
