As an integrative counsellor I use various therapeutic models depending what suits the situation (Click here for further information). I believe that you are your own expert, you have autonomy and my role is to walk beside you as you explore and grow. I value your uniqueness and knowing that no two clients are the same, I work with each person individually, depending on what suits you. I hope that a relationship will grow between us mutual respect and trust.

My job isn’t to tell you what to do, but to help you explore your thoughts and feelings and help you decide what step to take next. Counselling is a courageous, sometimes challenging process, but as we do this together, I believe growth, and if you choose it change, is possible.

I understand that starting this process can be quite daunting and I offer a 15-minute phone call prior to booking an initial session if you have any questions you would like to ask. I can also be contacted by email and text if you prefer.

I work face to face in Banbury, as well as Online/by phone, with individuals or relationships. If you’d like more information about the ways I work and the theories I use you can look here or to see a copy of my contract.
