Hello, and thanks for looking at my profile. I’m an accredited therapist with over 15 years experience, and wholly comfortable in dealing with a range of issues, from trauma to confidence, to abuse to anxiety. I’ve been described by former clients as friendly, easy to talk to and empathic. For me, the most important element in therapy is whether you feel you can trust me - and I know this is not always easy. You’ve likely been hurt and perhaps a little wary and weary of people. I’m not going to fix you, I can’t! Though the good news is, by working collaboratively, you absolutely can fix you, of that I have no doubt.

It's tough opening up to someone but we, via the therapeutical alliance, can create a safe space of trust where there is confidentiality, no judgment and that the client feels comfortable sharing. Here are some testimonials from previous clients for you to ponder: Social anxiety- My gran nearly fainted when she saw me ask someone who works in a shop a question, something I've never done in my life before. Grief- My therapist has helped me as I was feeling lonely and it cheered me and made me realise that I do have a future by myself with friends and family to support me. Low self esteem- I've realised I'm stronger than I thought.

As a practicing Counselling Psychologist, I offer an accepting and understanding relationship and work hard to help people understand and overcome different challenges. I work with clients with both short-term and long-term difficulties which can have a negative impact mental health and wellbeing. I recognise that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy and instead provide a more tailor-made approach to psychological counselling informed by goals for therapy and the working relationship.

From childhood we are given messages about the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways to feel, think and behave – messages that can teach us that we must hide or supress aspects of our authentic selves in order to be acceptable to others. If you’re an LGBTQ+ person, your sexuality and gender might completely unrelated to what has brought you to counselling, but you still want to know that your therapist will affirm these parts of you. In my online therapy room, you are invited to be your whole uncensored self in the company of somebody who values you unconditionally and really listens. I am a queer therapist with trauma informed training.

An Integrative Therapist, trained in Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic approaches to therapy. I am also undertaking an MA in Anthropology because my therapeutic approach centres on the idea that effective therapeutic collaboration considers the impact of evolutionary psychology, cultural, socioeconomical and linguistic influences. My aim is to facilitate a space for individual clients to talk and explore their problems and pain, but also heighten awareness and understanding about the blocks that are maintaining their difficulties. By making what is unconscious conscious we begin to create an effective way forward.

Within my practice, it is imperative that all clients are aware that therapy is taken at their individual pace. Following a thorough assessment, I help clients understand their current difficulties by building a narrative of what past events have contributed to the current problem and what may be maintaining it. From this, we collaboratively create an individual treatment plan that targets the presenting problem/s using the most relevant therapeutic approach available.

All I ask of my client is that they be willing to examine their lives in order to move forward in a positive way; counselling is not for everyone and I will not make demands of my clients to return should they feel counselling is not for them, openness is paramount and I want my clients to feel comfortable to hold me accountable should there be issues outstanding that are stunting our progress.
