About

My passion lies in helping individuals living with trauma, anxiety or depression related disorders, sex based issues, interpersonal difficulties and emotional regulation issues. I use a holistic client centred approach to help clients improve their relationship with themselves through self-compassion, awareness and emotional regulation. I use a combination of trauma informed approaches such as (Somatic Embodiment, Attachment Theory and Emotion Focussed Therapy) to support clients with emotional regulation, safely processing trauma and shifting unhelpful beliefs and unconscious patterns of behaviour.
I am strongly influenced by strength and mindfulness based therapies such as compassion focussed therapy, ACT, and transpersonal therapy. I have a lot of experience working with clients around relationship challenges and ethical non-monogamy, fear, self doubt, major life transitions and significant life trauma, guilt and shame.
I am currently accepting new clients. I spent most of my career working in fast paced crisis settings. I have spent a decade working all around the world in trauma based therapy, gender and sexuality giving me a strong intersectional lens.
