There is no one-size-fits-all model of therapy, as people grow, heal and change at a different pace.
I am trained in multiple modalities including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), psychodynamic, family and systemic and my core modality: existential and phenomenological. That is to say, I like to base my work equally on psychological and psychotherapeutic theories as well as philosophy (with an emphasis on Continental Philosophy).
I prefer to work in a flexible, client-centred and integrative manner; drawing from different approaches and techniques, depending on our counselling process and your needs and preferences.
It begins by learning who and how you are, and then collaboratively we can shape ways in which you can achieve your own goal and improve your well-being.

As a registered member of BACP, I adhere to and uphold their ethical and practical guidelines.
All my work is professionally supervised and have a full professional indemnity insurance.
For many of us, whether we identify as a member of the LGBTQ+ community or not, there are a multitude of issues that can be explored within therapy; aspects relating to our sexuality, our gender, our identity and the impact it can have on our lives, social networks and families.
We strive to express ourselves and to find ourselves; yet, we are always part of a society, of a group of friends, of a workplace environment or a family. Unfortunately, although things are changing in a positive direction, it is still possible to experience discrimination or to feel isolated, different and not accepted in some aspects of our daily life.
Therapy offers a safe space where you can unpack your feelings, your dilemmas and make sense of your experiences.
I welcome working with:
trans/transgender clients, pre/post or questioning transition;
people who engage in cross-dressing;
sexual anxieties and concerns about sex, sexuality and sexual practices;
people who engage in Kink, BDSM, asexuality or celibacy.
Wherever you are in your journey, therapy aims to offer a place of acceptance and empowerment to express yourself; a place where you will be heard and listened to.
