As a non-binary therapist with a BAME and LGBTQIA background, I specialised in LGBTQIA -focused & life/gender transitioning counselling.
Have you been struggling with sexuality, LGBTQIA identity, gender expression, and gender identity-related issues? Gender dysphoria and sexuality aren't psychological issues, however, they can still cause a lot of psychological stress and anxiety to a person. Or have you been struggling to fit into your workplace, local communities, or your social circle? Or might even have been unfairly treated or discriminated against because of your ethnic minority/BAME background? Unable to express your true self, true identity along with living in a society where misunderstanding and stigma can easily be found could greatly affect you

I am part of the LGBT + community and identify as a cis gay man. As a consequence I have seen how life can throw many diverse LGBTQ -related challenges at us: loss, crisis, change - that cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I believe within these challenging times we have the ability to grow and develop - even flourish - through the untangling of our internal and external worlds: who we are, our authentic selves, others’ around us as well as the world in which we live.

I am culturally sensitive and LGBTQ friendly.
I work with adults on various issues such as anxiety, depression, life cycle and other transitions, relationships, spirituality and racial issues, and more. Yet perhaps what you are feeling or struggling with does not have a clear title or category. Perhaps a sense that something is a little "off", or could be better, is what is urging you to seek someone to speak with.

I also have extensive experience supporting LGBTQ + and ethnic minority communities to survive and thrive despite systemic racism/oppression, and I use an intersectional, holistic framework in my practice.
It's not easy accessing therapy and it's natural to feel worried about being understood or having to explain aspects of your identity and culture to a stranger. I offer a space where you don't need to do that, so we can get to work on the things you need help with. I have a gentle, trauma-informed approach where I put your safety first and where you can progress at your own pace. Sessions are always collaborative, which means that your input and feedback are a key part of the process as you're the expert in your own life and what you need to feel better.

Do you feel like you are holding yourself back, putting yourself down and not living the life you really want? Would you appreciate discovering how to be your “real self” without putting on an act and learning to like and respect yourself? I work with people who have identified that they have feelings of low self-esteem or low confidence and want to make changes so that they can live their lives in the fullest way possible.

As a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I have had many years of experience in helping clients, just like you, who feel that they are on the point of no return. I've helped couples, men, women and children, who struggle with addictions, road rage, phobias, stress issues, anxiety, depression, loss and more. But, most of all I can help you. Sometimes we wake up one day and everything just seems too much, the body is saying no and so is the mind. This is where I help. You do not need to walk this path alone. No pressure, no judgement.

Life can be overwhelming at times, and we may feel that we don't have control of what is happening in our relationships, family, friends and work. We can be presented with many issues and not know how to process them. You want to speak to someone who will not judge. You want a safe space to talk through what is in your head and know you are free to be heard. Over time we can tend to bury what may have happened to us in our past and our present. These feelings and thoughts can be processed in a way that helps you grow into your awareness and healing.

Hi, my name is Hope. I know, a pretty good name for a therapist! I am an Integrative Psychotherapist. My aim and approach in therapy is to help you find your own path to the life you wish to live. We are all uniquely different and have different reactions to life and life events. I can help you work through some things you might find difficult. For example: Anxiety; Depression; Trauma; Relationship Issues. In order to heal and progress, we must first understand our emotions, what they are and where they come from. From here can make decisions to do something different, to break the patterns that no longer serve us in our life.
