About the Therapist
Life can be complex with various aspects of our situations, feelings and thoughts causing us difficulty at different times. I can offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to help you explore these issues and to look at why they have arisen. The sessions are led by where you want to go and at a pace that feels right for you. My approach is integrative and by using elements of different ways of working, such as person centred, psychodynamic and CBT, can be tailored to an individual’s needs.
I feel that my approach can help a wide range of clients with issues including anxiety, stress, depression, relationships, self-harm and self-defeating behaviours, whether associated with sexual or gender identity or not. I am aware of the effects that neurodivergence and diversity can have on people's lives.

While training my placement (100 hours) was at the well established ELOP (East London Out Project) where my clients encompassed a wide range of sexual and gender identities. The pandemic and the first lockdowns struck as this was finishing but I continued seeing clients referred by them on zoom for another 6 months.
During the pandemic I saw clients referred through Frontline 19, an organisation set up at the time to offer free counselling to frontline NHS staff and I still see clients from them.
I have recently done additional continuing professional training on trauma, ADHD, autism, intersectionality and diversity.
I have extensive experience of working with children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings including schools.
Though my initial and main approach is a person centred one I trained as an integrative counsellor which enables me to use person centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural approaches. I aim to tailor what I offer to the individual clients needs within a safe and empathetic therapeutic space.

Before starting sessions with a client I like to have a 15-30 minute free phone or zoom conversation to discuss what the client expects/wants, how I work and how sessions work. If we decide there is a good fit, clients can take their time deciding, then we can set a date for sessions to begin.
