As a Psychotherapist, I believe there is a profound connection between our mental and physical selves, recognising that true harmony arises when both are nurtured and aligned. With a foundation rooted in empathy and understanding, I offer a sanctuary where you can explore the depths of your mind and body, unraveling the intricacies of your inner world to cultivate a sense of connection, aliveness and deep trust.

Hi, I am Yuki. I am a neurodivergent & queer counsellor who is committed to providing a safe & nonjudgmental (shame-free) space for all genders, identities, neurotypes, and bodies. I collaborate with clients to explore their unique inner experiences being identified as neurodivergent; LGBTQIA+; CALD and more. I work from a non-pathologising stance, meaning that I will not see clients solely as their labels and/or diagnoses, rather, each person is their own unique being and we co-design strategies that work for the particular individual/situation.

Mental and emotional wellbeing is essential for us to achieve our goals and be the best version of ourselves. Not understanding the functions of our emotions can lead to poor emotional regulation or ineffective communication. This can cause depression, anxiety and interpersonal difficulties. We sometimes develop unhelpful ways to cope with life's challenges. I can help you discover ways to decipher important information about our emotions so that you can learn to use it as a guide map to achieve your goals, and build fulfilling relationships.

Play based parent child sessions can be really impactful way of helping you connect with your child to work through inner feelings, and process what might be challenging in your relationship. It is often really tough for children to express what's going on for them using words, and this is often why they find ways to communicate with us through their behaviour. This can be a little scary and overwhelming for us as caregivers, who may just be needing things to become a little easier at home. I work collaboratively and authentically with you and your child through the safety of play, where I draw on your wisdom, love, and knowledge.

I have a masters in Gestalt psychotherapy and work with a range of people and issues, including LGBTQIA+ folk, their families and others whose experiences of marginalisation have affected their mental health. A lifelong wish has been to enable others to explore their own healing journey. Emotional difficulties or life situations can feel overwhelming to deal with alone, and support is needed. I have learnt the value of analytic therapy through my own healing and see my work through a Gestalt lens. We are human, which means we are flawed and unique beings. 'We are all unique pieces of art in the making'.

I practice Lacanian Psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is a talking work, or therapy, which aims to make an absolute difference to suffering. Lacan's psychoanalysis is based in the idea that the unconscious is structured like language. What you say reveals the unconscious processes that underlie any issues that are problematic for you, or recur. Psychoanalysis is the safe space where you can come to talk freely, without censorship and your analyst listens. There is no "correct" way to speak; the work of psychoanalysis is to find your own unique voice, especially of your unconscious.

At the root of these concerns might be complex trauma, stressful life events, or perhaps grief & loss. The grief could be over a loved one, a broken relationship, or a dream that feels out of reach. I'm also deeply committed to supporting those who experience marginalisation, isolation, or exclusion, & those managing chronic health problems. Each person I work with has a unique story to tell; I believe in the importance of using an equally unique approach to therapy.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
