Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (UKCP, BACP)
I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical frameworks.
I base my practice on anti-discriminatory and non-oppressive values and welcome individuals from all cultural and religious backgrounds, sexual orientations, and practices (including those from LGBTQ+, kink, and polyamorous communities).
With years of experience in navigating the mental health sector, I have helped numerous people advocate for themselves, make sense of confusing labels, explore their difficulties, and reconnect with their agency in challenging situations.
My advice for someone looking to work with a counsellor is to find an ally who will support you without losing sight of your strength to weather the storm.
I offer this allyship by working collaboratively, and I encourage you to reach out no matter where you are in your journey.
In my practice, I draw from a range of psychological theories and methods, incorporating Person-Centered, Gestalt, and Transactional Analysis modalities. Furthermore, I integrate up-to-date neuroscientific research to tailor an approach that meets your needs.
I offer warmth, adequate challenge, and transparency to truly honour your capacity for growth and healing. There is a wealth of wisdom in understanding how you relate to others and yourself, and I will encourage you to explore this safely with me, building on your self-knowledge and awareness.
From this foundation, we can experiment with new ways of being.
My areas of special interest are:
- Anger Management
- Loss and bereavement
- Chronic Illness
- Multicultural identity and displacement
- Non-traditional relationships / Non-monogamy
- Personality Disorders
- Relationship Issues
- Self Esteem
- Trauma and PTSD
I offer sessions for individuals on a short-term or long-term basis, as well as online and face-to-face.
