(BA (Hons) Psychol; DClinPsych)

Chartered Clinical Psychologist Specialising in Psychotherapy

Anne-Marie offers an integrated approach to the problem or conflict you bring to therapy. This involves working with a combined cognitive, behavioural and emotional focus to your difficulties. Therapy will look at how one's thinking and behaviour impact on functioning and interpersonal relationships, with a specific focus on emotional experience and building tolerance to difficult emotions and the defences we have constructed. This approach incorporates the theoretical models of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Experiential Dynamic Therapy. Anne-Marie works flexibly using models of brief dynamic psychotherapy, mindfulness, attachment theory and the psychophysiology of trauma. Her work also emphasises client feedback on the therapeutic relationship, given her special interest in the factors involved in the process of therapy (e.g. resolving ruptures in therapy). 

Anne-Marie trained as a Clinical Psychologist, completing a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in Oxford in 2008. She has worked in the NHS for over 10 years and specialised in psychotherapy within adult mental health outpatient settings throughout clinical training and post qualification. She is currently Deputy Head of Counselling and Counsellor (part time) working with Oxford University Counselling Service (UCS) for the past five years, supporting the needs of 3rd level Undergraduate and Postgraduate students attending the University of Oxford, alongside her managerial role in service provision. In her private psychotherapy capacity, she does not generally see students from UCS, however she does work with adults presenting with a variety of complex mental health problems, interpersonal relationship issues and challenging life stage adjustment/transitional issues. 

In addition to psychotherapy, Anne-Marie offers Clinical Supervision to qualified psychologists and personal therapy to Clinical Psychologists in Training. 

Anne-Marie is currently available for appointments on Fridays (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) only.
