Psychodynamic Psychotherapist

Seeking therapy can be a confusing process; one confounded by the fact that most come during a time of crisis. I provide a supportive, confidential space where we can think openly, free of judgement, about different aspects of you and your life. I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy, both once and twice a week, at a private clinic in Summertown, Oxford.

I have worked across a wide range of clinical settings: private healthcare, NHS, university, school and forensic. I have experience in primary residential settings, outpatients, secondary and tertiary education, working with families, groups and organisations, and in conducting psychological assessments within high risk environments. The focus of my work is adult psychotherapy, however I will accept ages 16+.

Originally, I trained at the University of Oxford in psychodynamic psychotherapy over a period of four years, and have an ongoing research interest in lifespan development and personality disorder. I hold membership with UKCP, BACP and UPCA professional bodies.
