Counselling, EMDR and Energy Psychotherapy in Oxford

I am a UKCP registered Gestalt psychotherapist with a background in teaching and Advice work. I have also trained in EMDR and in various Energy psychotherapy methods. I have been astonished by the power and gentleness of these new methods which combine modern psychotherapy with ancient knowledge of the ways in which energy operates within the body.

“Many of us, having worked for years with other psychoanalytic and cognitive methods, find that energy psychology appears to offer results that are more rapid, deep and gentle than we or our clients have hitherto experienced.”
Phil Mollon author of Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy

As a Gestalt therapist, I believe that people are born with the potential to live satisfying and creative lives. Sometimes people get stuck in beliefs and ways of behaving which have been useful in the past but have become limiting. I see my task as a therapist as being to help you to see more clearly what your situation is, find out how you are part of it and experiment with finding new ways to move on from "unfinished business". Dealing with the consequences of old suffering can lead to a new and more satisfying perspective on life.

Many people may not be helped sufficiently by talking therapies alone because patterns of distress are encoded in the body as well as the mind. This is especially true for those who have suffered trauma - whether through major single incident(s) or through a pattern of abuse such as bullying or rejection. My trainings in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and in the Energy Psychotherapies provide powerful tools for working with any painful experiences from the past which may continue to affect how you experience life now. Many present day symptoms such as anxiety, depression, poor self-esteem and stress related physical conditions have their roots in unresolved distress from the past.


I charge £50 for a 50 minute session and encourage weekly meetings where possible. EMDR may sometimes need a longer session time and such sessions are then charged proportionately.

Location - Oxford
