I work with individuals and couples aged 18+ on all issues. I specialise in trans+ (genderqueer, non-binary), LGBTQ+ issues & family support. I'm an Accredited Gender, Sex and Relationship Diversities Therapist (Pink Therapy). I also have over 25 years of experience of support work in areas such as living with HIV, recovering from domestic abuse, young people's issues, neurodiverse awareness and work-related issues such as discrimination.
I am an experienced counsellor, trainer and group facilitator. I work with people experiencing a range of difficulties using an integrative approach which means we work together so you can find your own ways to cope with the things that are getting you down or feeling overwhelmed. I often integrate talking with other useful approaches like visual imagery.
Clients have said that I’m a good listener and created a space in which they felt safe and could explore their feelings and thoughts. I provide a free brief initial phone or Zoom call so you can tell me about your needs and to see how I may be best able to support you. If you have mobility needs I book an accessible room. I work short and long term.

The first session is about getting to know the areas you'd like to focus on and then we'd agree on what you'd like to prioritise. Often by two or three further sessions we are working towards a clearer plan. During this time I suggest some helpful approaches, for example, assertiveness or compassionate mindfulness and sometimes give handouts or things to do between sessions. We review it too.

We can look at whether improving assertiveness and communication, setting boundaries, practising compassionate mindfulness or certain strategies may help in certain situations. Also, getting to identify how thinking patterns can be useful or unhelpful. Sometimes using imagery, visual or creative approaches can help to view things differently.
