Tired of finding yourself frustrated, lonely, unfulfilled and lost in your intimate life and relationships? Yes, spending life stuck and unhappy, feeling like a lab rat – trying to figure out a maze without a map can be soul destroying. I've been talking, teaching and helping people with their relationships and sexuality since 2007, and no story can faze me. You can feel safe - I'll get you. I will understand and not judge one bit. This is your journey. Are you struggling with intimacy and sexuality? Are you curious about kinky sex or swinging? Or maybe you want to open your relationship? Or to begin with - actually find a partner?

I’m Izzy. I'm a queer, highly sensitive, Art Psychotherapist, Eco-Therapist and artist. My approach is nature-centered and 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'm currently opening slots for new clients to begin working with me in the new year. Or, you can join my workshops (see my website for details).

I appreciate that it can feel difficult in asking for help and to put trust in someone you have never met, especially with often upsetting and difficult issues. It can feel like we may have somehow failed or its a last resort in trying to resolve difficulties. I have helped many people like yourself, who also felt unsure initially on what to expect and feelings of trepidation or embarrassment in asking for help. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is all important to be effective in addressing the issues and helping you to make the changes that you want and to get things back on track.

Welcome to my profile and thank you for stopping by. I’m guessing you’re here because you think it might be time to tackle your problems. You’re tired of the status quo and would love to achieve positive change. Having worked therapeutically with people since 1999, I have lots of experience of treating a whole range of issues, and have supported many people to achieve the health and well-being they always dreamed of. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that change is possible, particularly if the problem’s been around for a long time. I’m here to tell you that, with our mutual hard work and dedication, it really is within your reach.

You may be questioning yourself or feeling stuck and counselling will help you recognise potential areas where change may be needed and support you in making positive change at a pace appropriate to your needs. ​ I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. I have faced my own therapeutic journey and healed from trauma and feel that this has given me more insight than any of my academic training and professional development. Let's work together to help you to secure a happier and more fulfilling life!

You may have anxiety and depression, struggle with low self esteem or have suicidal/intrusive thoughts. You may have problems controlling anger or impulsiveness. Maybe your thoughts or feelings are impacting relationships around you, or vice versa.Whatever the circumstance, I can help you understand yourself and others in a safe and non-judgmental space, for new or long term troubles. I also offer coping techniques to reduce intensity/frequency of negative thoughts, images, and physical sensations (panic attacks etc)

I am also non-monogamous and kink -aware, so am happy to discuss these aspects of life with you in a frank and open way.
I am a person-centred counsellor who primarily works with members of the LGBTQ+ community. While mental health issues can be a huge barrier for anyone, for LGBTQ+ people these issues can be magnified. Often LGBTQ+ folks struggle to feel understood, to feel heard, and can suffer social isolation as a result. Coming out, again and again, to ourselves, our friends, our partners all while finding one’s true sense of self, can be a lifelong mission. My outlook on counselling is based on compassion and honesty, and I work to foster an environment where collaboration and discourse are encouraged, working with you to get the best outcomes.

I am an open-minded counsellor that is kink aware and LGBTQ+ allied.
I offer online counselling through video calls where you can access therapy from the comfort of your home, or from a place where you feel safe. I offer a safe place where you can express what is going on for YOU in your life. I wonder if you are feeling emotionally drained, exhausted, and just not sure how to stop the thinking that you have? I wonder do you find yourself putting other people first and having little time for yourself? or perhaps you have always felt like this and don't know how to change? I am here to help YOU put the pieces together!

Hello. I believe, as with all living things, humans have within them an innate drive to develop and grow. Just as plants need nutrients and water to thrive, I believe we need an environment of warm, empathic understanding so we can strive - just like a flower in bloom - to reach our fullest potential. We also have a deep need for connection and acceptance. I believe that given these optimum conditions for growth, we can strive to become more fully who we want to be, and not perhaps just how others perceive us. I feel honoured and privileged when I meet new clients and they choose to work with and share their life stories with me.
