Hello, do you ever find yourself stuck in loops in your head, confused or overly critical of yourself? Do you find it difficult to meet your personal goals or do too much, and become burnt out or under resourced? Do you find yourself repeating patterns that feel limiting, painful or unhelpful for you, and not know why? Do you feel disconnected in any way from your body, in relationships or from doing things that bring you joy? Would you like to reconnect with lost parts of yourself, whether desired feelings, personal interests and rewarding relationships? Would you like to know your worth, feel safer and more confident to be you?

My clinical experience means that I can work with individuals of any age and presenting difficulties. This allows me to draw on a wide range of therapeutic models to understand your needs and identify with you the most appropriate therapy. Having struggled with my own mental health, I know how difficult and exhausting it can be trying to figure out the best approach so that I could start making the changes I hoped for. Finding the right fit is important so that you may feel more invested in the therapist and the process. I am currently only able to offer assessments due to capacity.

As a black therapist, my diverse background enhances my understanding of the unique struggles faced by different groups. I utilise an Integrative approach, but it's my personal experiences and cultural awareness that influence how I work. I aim to create a welcoming space where clients feel recognised and valued for their differences. I offer guidance and support as they navigate through challenging times in their lives, creating a safe and nurturing environment for them to explore their issues with my presence and companionship every step of the way, until they feel confident and empowered to stand on their own.

I work gently and compassionately, with individuals/couples, struggling with difficult or painful feelings, managing their emotions, and struggling to enjoy life. Communication is often an issue, as are feelings of unfairness or difficulty forming good, lasting relationships. Issues may involve partners, parents, past traumas, or inner conflict making decisions difficult. They may involve issues at work with colleagues, management or relationships. When working with couples the issues are often about unfulfilled expectations, infidelity, lack of commitment/affection, insecurity, lack of empathy, or experiences of coercion or control

I believe that all individuals have within them the ability to heal and all they need to help navigate the more difficult experiences in life. Experiences such as loss, relationship breakdown, illness, developmental trauma recovery, depression and anxiety. Perhaps you are experiencing low mood, restlessness, fatigue, feeling powerless, helpless or struggling with self-belief. Perhaps your life has taken an unexpected turn and you would like a safe place to talk about this. Perhaps you are looking for an opportunity to develop greater understanding of your self.

At times, we all face up-hill struggles and distress in life. Perhaps you are feeling stuck or can't see a way through. Maybe something difficult has happened, which is hard to process alone. It takes courage to talk, but it helps. My role is to listen patiently without judgement. I provide you with time and a safe place to unpack those struggles or difficulties and the often-uncomfortable emotions that accompany them, so that you can take steps forward, more confidently and safely.

Do you walk on eggshells in certain relationships? Do you struggle to say no or set boundaries. Do you feel like your reality is being questioned? Have you been in a relationship that has been verbally abusive? Do you not have control of your finances, or personal decision making? Do conversations sound like they are 'crazy making' or going in circles. Sometimes we feel like we have lost ourselves in our relationships. Or we have experienced significant psychological abuse in the past. I help people make sense of their experiences in a safe and nurturing environment. You are not alone and can improve your life.

Our early life experiences may impact on the way we form relationships as adults; struggling to connect with others, and we may even struggle to feel a connection with ourselves. Any kind of trauma at a young age, may be the cause of that disconnect. Sometimes leading to the same issues or patterns of behaviour coming up over and over again. Our work will involve engaging with your experiences in a compassionate and curious way. Giving you the space you need to make sense of and begin to understand your lived experience.

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.
