It's good to talk

Affordable, professional Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for anxiety, depression, and better mental health via video call.

Sometimes life gets harder than we’d like. When that happens, it’s good to have someone to talk to.

I’m a therapist offering a modern, evidence-based approach to psychotherapy and counselling. If you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, or you just feel like you’d like to be mentally healthier, please get in touch.

My practice is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) techniques. CBT emphasises learning to notice the automatic thoughts that shape our behaviour, and learning how to replace them with more helpful thinking patterns. I also draw on a range of other approaches, depending on what fits your situation best.

I’m based in Oxford, UK, but due to the recent coronavirus epidemic, I’ve moved my practice online. Wherever you are in the UK, I’d love to talk.

I believe we can always learn how to cope better.

Seeking therapy is a courageous act

When life gets hard, it can be difficult to take the first steps towards getting the help you need.

Choosing a therapist can be challenging, especially if you’re living with (or suspect you may be living with) depression or anxiety, which can sometimes make even simple decisions feel overwhelming. Even if you’re just interested in therapy for better mental health, it’s still hard to know which therapist is right for you.

Recognising that you want things to be better takes courage. By visiting my website, you’ve already taken the crucial first step.

My goal is to make every step of the process, from learning about me and my approach, to booking a session, as straightforward as possible. If there’s anything else you need to know, you’re always welcome to get in touch.

Why choose me as your therapist?

  • You’re living with depression
