About

Working with individuals and couples, online, I am an LGBTQ+ affirmative, trauma-informed psychodynamic therapist. Therapy involves a joint inquiry into the underlying beliefs and habitual ways of being and seeing that we carry. Regular sessions provide a reflective, confidential space for self-exploration and support, in which to look together at any areas of concern to you. As we begin to make sense of troubling, confusing or conflicting feelings and experiences, it can become possible to discover greater ease, choice and fulfillment in the present.
I draw upon psychodynamic, Jungian, somatic (body-based) and Buddhist psychology in my approach. Together, these lend a depth-oriented and de-pathologising stance that centres a respect for the individual alongside an appreciation of the impact of early life on the present. I offer specialism in gender, sexuality and relationship diversity, and trauma.
It can take real courage to face the causes of our distress and to entrust these with another person. It's important to find a therapist you feel confidence in and with whom you feel safe. Whether your reasons for seeking therapy feel vague or specific, I welcome you to get in touch to arrange an initial conversation or visit my website for more information.
