About

The world around us has become more complex and more is expected of us every day, which can result in us feeling on edge or unsatisfied. I provide space for the modern person to make sense of their problem/s and learn new ways of living in line with their values and goals. My ideal client would be the modern person who has experienced discrimination for not ‘fitting in’. Women, queer people, people of colour, disabled people or young people who feel like an outsider- I offer a safe space and side-by-side we face the problem/s together. Outside of therapy sessions, I can coach clients to use learnt strategies over email.
I currently offer online therapy, incorporating both cognitive and behavioural interventions as well as interventions from other models, including DBT, ACT, CFT and mindfulness, having recently completed training to become a mindfulness teacher. I tailor treatment to an individual, making your treatment unique to you.
We can sometimes look inward and blame ourselves for a problem, and choose not to seek help. A diagnosis is not a requirement for therapy. I offer a free consultation to identify if therapy would be helpful for 15 minutes, and recommend services to try if not. Your recovery and accessing the right service is my top priority.
