I mainly work with LGBTQ + folk who wish to meet a counsellor where those aspects of their identity will not be unnecessarily questioned or looked at, but can be spoken about respectfully and safely. I aim to offer you a sense of hope and empowerment, along with techniques you could use in your life to enhance or help you cope with your experience of existence. I can support you to explore whatever is going on in your life such as stress, grief (including for loss of pets), exploring gender identity, exploring sexuality, body image, anxiety or depression.

As a non-binary therapist with a BAME and LGBTQIA background, I specialised in LGBTQIA -focused & life/gender transitioning counselling.
Have you ever been judged by just being who and what you are? Have you been disapproved of your sexuality, identity, gender identity, your life choices, and what and who you want to be? It is difficult to live our lives every day being questioned by our families, friends, or others. Maybe at times, even we started to ask ourselves, Am I “normal”? Am I doing the wrong thing? Should I just try to do what they want me to do, but can I? Am I passable enough or will I ever be? It feels natural to me, but why are they judging me for it? Most important of all, do I deserve to be happy by being myself and how could I ever achieve that?

I believe my clients are the expert on their own life. I will work with whatever you feel you need to bring to therapy. I will offer you a safe place without judgement and with respect. I will give you the space to explore your feelings and will respect you for who you are while believing in your potential to grow. Counselling can help with many issues you may be facing. Anxiety, low mood/feeling sad, depression, bereavement, abuse, family issues, marital problems or past trauma are some examples of problems you can explore through counselling. I have considerable experience working with clients from the LGBT + community.

I’m Izzy. I'm a queer , highly sensitive, Art Psychotherapist, Eco-Therapist and artist. I’m currently moving into a more nature-centred way of working, alongside studying Eco-Therapy with the Tariki Trust. My approach invites you to you ‘feel into’ your body and environment; to go beyond the intellectual. That could look like deepening your relationship with the outdoors or embracing your animal, instinctual self. Or it could look like exploring plant-based and sustainable art materials. I am currently only offering online therapy.

Let’s face it, life can be hard. To tackle the challenges we endure day-to-day, it’s essential to build a good psychological foundation and increase our fortitude. Without a balanced lifestyle our bodies and minds become less resilient. Are you struggling to move forward? My life philosophy is simple – be consistent and things will change for you. Work with me if you want to create healthier habits/behaviours and relinquish old beliefs that have weighed you down.

Hi - are you feeling stuck? Repeating the same patterns of behaviour again and again in your life or relationship and going round in circles? Do you feel a lack of love/respect with your partner or someone close to you? Is sex or intimacy an issue but you’re not quite sure how to approach it? Perhaps Covid or life changes have increased your anxiety and the trust has gone or you're feeling sad, angry, lonely, misunderstood, stressed, numb, or just not sure what you feel anymore?! I provide a safe, non-judgmental space helping individuals and couples gain better personal understanding to improve on their wellbeing and relationships.

It has been a crazy time, hasn't it? During all this I have found so many people have questioned work, relationships, struggled with being alone or being stuck feeling like they are losing their independence and autonomy, invoking anxiety or depression and having too much time to THINK often look to the past and get ourselves caught up in the injustice or any childhood trauma that has been neatly tucked away for so long. I work with childhood trauma, relationship difficulties, work related stress, identity issues, depression and anxiety, mood related difficulties and much more!

I offer a safe and non-judgemental enviroment where I help people solve the problems that they are dealing with. I want my clients to walk away from our time together with the tools to maintain the changes they have worked for and a new found or rediscovered confidence in themselves and life. My therapy is practical, straight forward and it works. Cognitive behaviour therapy was designed for anxiety related issues from panic to OCD. It is perfect for depression or anger issues. As a qualified hypnotherapist I also teach relaxation and mindfillness meditation to those who want that extra dimension to their therapy.
