Welcome to my website
Are you looking for counselling because you are struggling generally in life, in relationships or with a specific situation? Do you want professional help to achieve a specific life or work goal?
I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor with over 12 years experience and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner.
I work with individuals and couples and can help with a wide range of issues:
grief and loss
shock trauma and post traumatic stress
relationship and family problems

My counselling practice is warm and welcoming. I will give you time and provide a safe, non-judgmental space to explore and work on any issues and goals you bring. The address is The Practice Rooms, 2A South Parade, Summertown OX2 7JL (website thepracticerooms.co.uk).
As an integrative practitioner I work combining theories and methods from different psychotherapy and psychology schools. This gives me a wider, more flexible “tool box” to help my clients, because every person is unique and so are their circumstances and their journey. I draw on the following in my work:
•Somatic Experiencing SE®
Taking a first step to seeing a therapist or coach can be challenging. But if the match is good it's very rare that people regret it. Instead they summarise it as “The best thing I ever did for myself”.

I have a multicultural background and speak fluent English, Swedish and Spanish. With a past career in international corporate business I have a solid understanding of the working world "out there" and company dynamics. As a therapist I have undergone my own journey of exploration through therapy and personal development. I have benefited enormously from this and still enjoy seeking a fresh take from a professional when life challenges me.
