About

If you're struggling with difficult emotions, feel flat, stuck in life or overwhelmed, it might be time to reach out. I have worked with people who are looking for support with depression, critical voices, low self-esteem amongst other mental health problems. I offer an empathic, safe space to explore thoughts and feelings and to think about our behaviours and how to change them. As we live life through different types of relationships (romantic, family, colleagues, friends) our sessions together will be based on a relational approach. As problems often arise from relationships they are also healed through relationships.
My approach to counselling is based upon the principles of Transactional Analysis. I believe that we are all born OK and deserve respect and validation. At our core, we are all lovable and have a positive desire for growth.
I developed an interest in the mind and helping people deal with trauma and other psychological issues whilst working at The Terrence Higgins Trust in 2016-18. I gained valuable experience in helping people with issues around internalised homophobia, toxic shame, depression amongst others.
