Biography


Hi. I work relationally and integratively to find an approach that works best for you. I view the relationship between us both to be crucial in facilitating whatever changes you want to make, and know that shopping around and finding the right fit is important before investing money, time and emotional energy. I'm always happy to have an informal chat before you commit to any sessions.

** Note: Please message to check availability before purchasing a session. Thank you **

My therapy background is underpinned by Person-Centred, Pychodynamic and Transactional Analysis theories. I can utilise CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques, though I tend to use them conversationally rather than as a structured, task-based activity.

I am LGBTQIA+/GSRD (Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversity) allied, sex positive, body positive, and kink-aware.

I currently work with adults presenting with a number of issues. I have previously worked with children from age 5 upwards in school settings, and with an agency specialising in Post-Natal Depression. Prior to my counselling career, I worked in the arts and education sectors, supporting people of different ages and abilities to explore and express themselves, which it seems is something of a passion of mine. My arts training and background mean that I'm not averse to bringing creativity into the therapeutic relationship if required. I'm also happy to run through breathing and visualisation exercises for relaxation.
