Experience and approach

Specific experience and training:


I have been working as a counsellor for over 14 years, five of which have been for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender mental health organisations and charities. 

I have extensive experience with gender and sexual diversity clients including asexuals, demisexuals, gender queerying and trans*, gay males, lesbians, bisexuals, polyamorous, kink and BDSM clients...

I have graduated in the Certificate in Sexual Minority therapy with Pink Therapy (aka Diploma in Gender and Sexual Diversity) and am engaging in more training and research around counselling and sexuality.

I am also a qualified Psychosexual therapist and work with all aspects of sex, sexuality and/or gender identity.

I offer clinical supervision to other therapists and training around gender and sexual diversity issues in therapy including psychosexual problems for Pink Therapy and Beeleaf.

My work is relational and I consider all aspects of the client (past, ethnicity, family, work, sexuality, gender, relationships...). I include in my practice ideas from many theoretical approaches: Psychodynamic, Feminist, Humanistic, CBT, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Existential etc...

I am very sensitive to cultural differences and ran a therapeutic group for Gay male asylum seekers and refugees.
