My approach

I am a friendly and experienced Clinical Psychologist who is passionate about helping to alleviate mental distress through sharing my knowledge and expertise gained through training, life experience and 14 years working in mental and physical health NHS services. I don't believe anyone should suffer alone and therefore I have set this practice up to offer adults and children another avenue for getting high quality help when they need it. 


If you choose to meet with me, we will work together to develop an understanding of why you are struggling because if we start with this, we can develop a personalised treatment plan which is most likely to support you to move towards the life that you want. 

As a clinical psychologist I have undertaken many years of training to reach doctorate level. This means I have been trained in a range of evidence-based talking therapies to help individuals and families overcome difficulties. These include:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

  • Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT)

  • Compassion Focused Therapy  (CFT)

  • EMDR

Therapy can be delivered online nationwide or in-person within my welcoming clinic spaces in Deddington and Brackley both of which can be easily reached from Oxford, Bicester and Banbury.

What I can help with


Finding help for yourself can feel like a daunting step. However, I truly believe that no one is immune to experiencing distress and therefore we are all likely to need help at some point in our lives. You may be experiencing difficulties for the first time, or you might have lived with them for all of your life. Either way, psychological therapy can help you to understand and overcome mental distress so that you can live the life you want. My most recent NHS post was in an adult mental health service where I support key workers with a wide range of mild to complex mental health difficulties.  I also have specific expertise in working with people with physical health conditions. These are common reasons you may wish to meet with me:

  • Anxiety & worry

  • Panic

  • Low self-esteem/confidence

  • Low mood/depression

  • Phobia (including adult food phobia & needle phobia)

  • Trauma

  • Coping with physical health difficulties

Young people & children aged 9 and above

Choosing a therapist to support your teen or child is a big decision. I have three years of experience  working in a specialist paediatric setting with all ages. I use a warm, friendly and humorous approach to engage young people in therapy sessions and I work hard to build their trust through ensuring their voice is heard and directs the process of therapy. I have experience of working with many difficulties, but I also have specialist skills in supporting young people to adjust to and live a full life with health conditions. The kind of difficulties young people may benefit from meeting with me include:

  • Anxiety & worry

  • Exam stress

  • Low mood

  • Low self-esteem/confidence

  • Trauma - memories and feelings related to upsetting events

  • Living with health conditions​

I also work with parents to develop confidence in parenting processes such as setting boundaries and supporting their child's emotional needs in a way that is adapted to their child's personality and interests.
