We all struggle to cope with the challenges of life from time to time and starting therapy can offer you a grounded space of support. I am a Clinical Psychologist and offer a nurturing and private space, for you to unpack your thoughts and gain clarity. Psychotherapy is an ideal platform to explore your pain, give words to unspoken trauma and help you manage when you feel overwhelmed, down or anxious. My way of working lends itself better to medium or longer-term psychotherapy as I enjoy doing depth work with my patients. This includes exploring how our earliest experiences influence how we see oursehow we connect with others.

I help LGBTQ+ (or questioning) and marginalized people struggling with identity development, sex/sexual health issues, relational trauma & self-worth/self-esteem, cultivate a fulfilling relationship with themself and others within the context of rigid cultural expectations. Feeling seen is a human need, and often, in an effort to be accepted we push down the very parts of ourselves that make us unique in favor of accomplishment, likability and to avoid punishment or embarrassment.

As Mahatma Gandhi said: “You can’t change how people treat you or what they say about you. All you can do is change how you react to it.” I believe that we all sometimes need help to manage how we are reacting to the situations in our lives. Hence, the first step in therapy is understanding what is happening in your life & deciding how we can change it.

My ideal client has taken the first step of bravery to delve deeper into whatever is troubling their hearts. I imagine them to set expectations and goals for me to mark what they would like to achieve within my practice. I imagine my client to want a safe space, which I will gladly hold for them. I imagine them to be openminded, willing to learn and actually work on themselves. Healing is not linear, and it definitely takes them doing their inner work to heal. I imagine for my clients to not be dependent on me, but rather see me as their crutch or someone to hold their hand in times where their life does not feel balanced.

Their aim for therapy is to understand why this keeps happening and to grow and develop beyond it.

I am a clinical psychologist working with adults and couples. People choose to start therapy for different reasons. Some may be facing a distressing time, whereas others may have long-standing difficulties which hold them back from a more fulfilling life. Therapy provides support and insight to effectively manage your difficulties, whilst accounting for your unique experience. It is a space to process your emotions, explore your behaviours and better understand yourself and your relationship dynamics. Couple's therapy can help you to understand and constructively address complex relationship dynamics to promote emotional connection.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
