I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. This means I am trained in multiple models of psychological care so I can respond to your needs in a flexible and friendly way.
People seek therapy for all sorts of reasons. You may have specific issues you want to address, or you may have broader questions you want to explore. Alternatively, you may be experiencing certain feelings such as anxiety, depression, feeling stuck or past experiences could be troubling you in the present.
My therapy is about providing an environment for you to express your feelings in a safe and non-judgmental space while seeking clarity and insight into yourself and the world around you. My practice is friendly, professional and safe. If you're not sure if therapy is for you I am happy to have a chat about how it could help.
In addition to my private practice, I run group therapy at SurvivorsUK, a charity supporting men, boys, Trans & non-binary people who have survived sexual abuse or violence. I also have an honorary contract working at The NHS Maudsley Psychiatric Hospital where I work with patients one to one with a variety of mental health disorders and issues.
I have extensive history working with survivors of trauma, the LGBTQ+ community, young people and students, longterm or chronic illnesses, sex and sexuality as well as depression and anxiety. While these are my specific areas of expertise, I am open to all issues you may wish to explore. Currently, I am working online and have a lot of experience delivering therapy over video call or phone. I also offer socially distanced 'Walking Therapy' in a local park to clients after 6 sessions together. My work has a friendly and professional approach and I pride myself on providing a warm and safe environment in which to work with clients.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework and code of conduct. I am a member of the Radical Therapist Network, a membership organisation for therapists dedicated to intersectional, trauma-informed and anti-oppressive learning and therapeutic practice. Alongside this I am a member of the Paediatric Mental Health Association, a multidisciplinary group of professionals including Paediatricians, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, Clinical Psychologists, Nurses, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists, who are concerned in promoting mental wellbeing alongside physical health of babies, children and young people into adulthood.
A few updates
Covid-19, coming out of lockdown and face to face therapy.
After a year of online therapy, my client base is spread all over the UK. I will be consulting with current clients about locations and establish a new face to face clinic over the summer. Until then I will be working online and by phone. If you would like therapy but are unsure whether online appointments would suit you, do get in touch.
