Starting therapy can be daunting. As a queer, non-binary, neurodivergent therapist, it is my aim to hold a space for affirming therapy for all. I have supported people with relationship challenges, people wanting to build and explore relationships with themselves and those looking back at their past and how it could be affecting them today (sometimes presenting as anxiety or depression). I am open to a fun and creative approach to talking therapy built on the relationship between myself and my client. I use relational TA and also have experience of 12 step fellowships particularly those looking at family dysfunction.

I believe your therapy should be as unique as you and focus on providing informed support for LGBTQIA+ clients, adult children (ACA/ACOA) and anyone who feels they struggle to 'fit in'.
Welcome! Thanks for visiting my profile. Pull up a seat, get comfortable, and lets really talk about what matters to you. There could be a million reasons why you're here....maybe you’ve been trying to hold it all together and feel tired or overwhelmed? Do you sometimes wish there was a manual for navigating relationships or conflict? Perhaps you want to feel better about yourself but don’t know where to start. When your brain is constantly chattering and the to-do list is never-ending, it can feel impossible to make sense of it all. If you're curious about how to feel happier and more confident, you're in the right place.

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

Are you an LGBTQ+ person and looking to gain some clarity in life? Are you struggling with your romantic relationships or trying to make sense of your past? You might find that you feel isolated, alone and are missing out on connections with loved ones. These difficult feelings can cloud the parts of your life which should bring you joy; this unhappiness can lead to further disconnect with those around us.

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 mainly work with LGBTQ+ clients and those who have always felt different in some way. My focus is on working with you to understand why you feel the way you do and what might help. Perhaps you find yourself becoming anxious in situations others seem to manage with ease or feel overwhelmed by difficult emotions. Or maybe you feel like you’re getting in your own way, repeating the same unhelpful patterns and ways of coping which no longer serve you but seemingly unable to change. Together we can help manage the things that currently feel overwhelming and bring about the changes you want.

Perhaps you have been thinking for a little while that it would be good to talk to someone in a confidential and safe space.
