My training and experience enables me to utilise different approaches with different people, according to the current research evidence and taking into account an individual's preferences and needs. Ioften use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to help people to move forward and overcome their problems, but I also draw on several other approaches including schema therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and compassion-focused approaches.
I am a registered psychodynamic counsellor / psychotherapist with extensive experience over ten years. I work privately from my clinic in Summertown, in North Oxford.

I start from the belief that for us all, our present state of mind is influenced by unconscious memories of the past.
