Additionally, I specialise in working with issues surrounding gender, sexuality and identity, and the specific needs of the LGBTQIA +/ GSRD community.
Asking yourself how you can make your life more meaningful, in spite of whatever issue you may be struggling with? Counselling can help you make sense of it and move forward. I provide a safe, engaging, and supportive space for you to explore any issue that is troubling you. The ultimate goal would be to help you create a more meaningful life and new ways of approaching your relationship with yourself and others.

Are you finding there are overpowering voices from friends, family or social media that are directing you how to think? Would you like to experience some space to understand your own thoughts and feelings without fear of what others might say or do in response? Have you been struggling in your relationships to be heard and seen? Would you like to be valued and affirmed for the choices you make in your life? Would you like to have counselling online, conveniently and confidentially on your phone or laptop? I'm here to support you.

I have extensive experience of working with the LGBTQ + community and with addiction issues.
Perhaps you feel stuck, find yourself in the middle of a crisis, or you want a space in which to examine and reflect on your own story and what has brought you to the point you're at now. Perhaps you want to see if there is another way of telling your story. My intention is to grow a unique and collaborative relationship with you. We may work on your present situation as well as the whole of your history. The confidential space that therapy provides can bring healing of old patterns and wounds. It is my own wounds and periods of suffering and the growth that arose from those moments that have drawn me to this work.

I am an LGBTQ + affirmative, sex and fat positive therapist.
If what you’re currently doing isn’t working for you, let’s find another way that does. I work with people who want to find clarity and calm, cope better with change and say no when they want to. I can help you get to know yourself better and support you in making meaningful changes in your life. Maybe you’ve been feeling anxious or stressed or overwhelmed by life’s challenges. Perhaps you feel stuck in the same patterns of behaviour. Maybe you feel disconnected from yourself and others at times. You’re not thriving. I understand because I’ve been there too. It’s not more willpower you need, it’s more insight.

I currently have space on Mondays and Thursdays. I am a Queer therapist and I have been working with the LGBTQ + community for a number of years. I can offer a safe and non-judgmental space for us to explore what is troubling you. Most of us experience mental health challenges at some point in our lives, and there is still so much pressure to appear like we have it all together. Often just feeling heard is the first step towards healing. There is strength in admitting that we can’t do it all on our own. I currently work with clients aged 18 and over only, both online and in-person in offices near central Brighton.

This has included therapeutic work in secondary schools, a creative art university, LGBTQ + community services, adult community mental health and within charity organizations.
Our wellbeing is influenced by so many things – our identities, families, friendships, relationships, gender, sexuality, race, worldview, faith, finances, work, studies, past experiences, traumas, mental health, systems of oppression, physical health and much more. In our therapy sessions I offer a space for you to explore these things and make meaning of your experiences. Together we can consider: Which things are causing you to feel unhappy or anxious? Which things are important to your identity? Which of your experiences are painful or caused trauma? How do you relate to others? What would you like your life to look like?

I have also worked with a large number of LGBTQ + clients whilst volunteering at ‘London Friend’ and ‘The Naz Project.
As a counsellor, I primarily focus on the relationship between myself and you the client. I view each client as a unique individual and throughout our sessions I hope to create a strong enough connection between us in a safe and supportive environment that you, as the client are able to open up and make the best use of the sessions. Relating is the core of what we do as counsellors and building and sustaining those relationships in the therapy room is where everything hinges.

I support a variety of clients and I am passionate about supporting those who identify as ADHD and LGBTQ +.
Choosing a therapist is a very personal decision and finding someone that you feel comfortable with is an important part of your process. I am relational, collaborative and holistic, placing value and importance in you, your story and your challenges and successes. You might be struggling with anxiety, anger or depression? Perhaps issues from your past keep resurfacing and you're looking for a way to move forward? Maybe you have noticed you feel different to the people around you? Or you might like to process an event in a safe environment with a professional?

I have worked extensively with people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, the LGBTQ + community and those living with HIV.
I imagine you are viewing this page because you want something to change, or to feel different, in your life. Perhaps this is in relationship to yourself, or to others, or both. Perhaps you experience high levels of anxiety, or feeling stuck, living with the effects of historical or recent trauma. Perhaps you are dealing with issues of belonging, self worth or self acceptance? I offer a welcoming, accepting space to address your current circumstances, and if you wish, how they are informed by your past experiences. My invitation is also that our sessions become an exploration of purpose, creativity, inspiration and values.

My counselling journey started a decade ago, not as a qualified counsellor, but as a client. At the time I had recently come out as gay and was looking for a therapist to support me on my journey of self-acceptance. My therapist’s empathy and non-judgemental approach not only helped me to achieve that but also inspired me to start studying counselling. Now, I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have worked extensively with the LGBTQ + community both as an activist and as a counsellor.

I began as an anthropologist, seeking to understand other people's cultures from their own perspectives. Then my desire changed to facilitating direct positive shifts in other people's lives; lives spoilt by trauma, depression, anxiety, abuse, persecuted sexuality and lack of life direction. My work is now with private clients across anxiety and mood problems - generalized anxiety, OCD, PTSD, psychosexual problems and depression. I also work in depth on relationship problems which often link with anxiety. In Islington Mind I worked with LGBT clients including asylum seekers persecuted for their sexuality.
