As a member of the LGBTQ + community and with a background in education, I am passionate about individuality and finding one's voice.
The way I work is guided by the values of curiosity, creativity, and compassion. My aim is to offer you an accepting, non-judgemental environment where you can really be yourself; a safe space where you are encouraged to explore, question and grow in your own time; where every experience, feeling and part of you is welcome, particularly those ones that have been out in the cold. At the beginning, the process can be like a ball of yarn, with many different threads tangled together. We will work together as a team to unravel these threads, weaving them into something that makes more sense and is hopefully more manageable.

I have a real passion working in the area of LGBTQIA + mental health and also have extensive experience working with people living with HIV.
Life can be difficult, and we all could do with that extra support at times. I am here to accompany you through your therapeutic journey and make sense of how you experience the world. I provide counselling and therapy services to people across a wide range of issues, for both adult and adolescent clients. I integrate various forms of therapy, including person centred, gestalt, existentialism, and cognitive therapy (CBT), to find the approach that meets your individual need.

Hi! I'm Owen, a humanistic & integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. I work with a broad range of issues. However I also specialise in LGBTQ + and Gender, Sexual & Relationship Diversities (GSRD) therapy. This means that I will provide full acceptance of who you are, regardless of how you identify. I view no person or issue as being more important than another. I see both of us working together as unique individuals. I've seen how life can throw many different challenges which can cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I also believe that such challenges can offer us opportunities to develop and grow - perhaps even flourish!

Primarily, I deal in the areas of Low Self-esteem, Depression, Anxiety, LGBTQ +, Grief & Loss, Sexuality, Inner Child Wounds and Anger Management.
I welcome all clients regardless of gender or sexual orientation. Clients who have experienced traumatic episodes in their life. Clients who have felt they have always been on their own. They may have always felt that they have had no one to protect them, never felt loved or nurtured. Clients who feel they are totally disconnected with who they are. Such clients may feel they are totally lost and have no direction in their life. I welcome all such clients to my practice. Together we will find the reconnection to Self and in doing so find a purpose and goal in life.

Being a member of the LGBTQ community myself ( Queer ) I work primarily with adults and teens who are LGBTQ and I have specialist training working with trans clients, but I am open to working with you, whoever you are.
I work with people like you, wherever you are on your journey. It may be understanding thoughts and feelings or recognizing behaviours that no longer serve you and working towards reaching positive fulfilment in your life. Learning to trust and understand yourself is the first step in challenging negative thoughts and bringing about positive change. If you are a person who is trans or gender-expansive I will accompany and support you at whatever stage you are at on your journey. Being heard, accepted and affirmed by someone who does not judge or ask you to justify your experience of life can be a deeply healing experience.

I worked a lot with gay , lesbian and transgender clients, people with disabilities and people from different cultures.
As an accredited therapist, I provide both short term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy on a one to one basis (not couples) in a confidential and safe environment including online. The process empowers you to explore issues and understand thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviours which cause suffering and facilitates the safe space to achieve greater awareness, insight, healing and growth. I work using a humanistic and integrative approach to psychotherapy. My approach is grounded in Person-Centred psychotherapy, while drawing significantly on Psychodynamic theory and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) where appropriate.

Counsellor, MA, MIAHIP

When we are suffering we tend to look at all that is wrong in our lives. We sometimes make judgements and assumptions about ourselves or our situations that focus mainly on the negative. We each have developed ways of being in the world that have enabled us to cope with whatever challenges we have had to face. These coping strategies become our defence mechanisms and are often developed by us at an early age when we had few resources. They can sometimes create negative patterns of relating to others and the world around us and become barriers to intimate or professional relationships.
