I specialise in supporting the LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent communities, with focus on autism, LGBTQIA+ issues, and complex trauma. I have experience working with people aged 14 and above. I aim to create a non-judgmental space, ensuring inclusivity and genuineness in every session. I can work with people at all stages of life, from queer people out in the community, to people suspecting they may be autistic. I take particular interest in AFAB and neurodivergent people, and the entire LGBTQIA+ community. I am not suitable for people seeking CBT.
I am a proud autistic and queer person, utilising my lived experience in every session. I combine personal understanding with practical solutions, fostering a collaborative and empowering atmosphere. I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion-Focused Therapy.
I know that seeking counselling can be challenging, and I invite you to enquire and begin to embark on this warm and encouraging journey. Emphasising the importance of authenticity, breaks, and accommodations, I do my best to assure a safe and inclusive therapy space.
