About

First and foremost, I consider it a priority that you feel comfortable to discuss personal and sensitive matters in confidence.  Secondly, that you develop a tangible understanding of your problems so that you can make the changes needed to improve your circumstances significantly.
 
I have over 10 years experience of working therapeutically in health and social care settings such as the UK wide organisation Turning Point, the NHS and leading London-based private practice, Efficacy.

I currently provide CBT for the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre at the Warneford Hospital, Oxford Health NHS, and offer appointments at my practice in St Giles, Oxford OX1.
