I take a hands-on, evidence-based approach to provide tailored support and develop effective strategies to enhance mental well-being. I don't believe in passive therapy; rather, I actively engage with individuals as they navigate their quest for meaning, direction, and assistance in their lives. I specialise in working with adults and am dedicated to serving diverse populations. With a wealth of experience supporting LGBTQIA+ communities and individuals from various backgrounds, I bring a deep understanding of different walks of life. Having transitioned from a corporate career, I embarked on the path of becoming a therapist following my own experience of trauma. The support and guidance I received from an exceptional therapist during this challenging period inspired me to pursue a career dedicated to helping others navigate their own struggles. With empathy, expertise, and a dedication to fostering resilience, I strive to empower my clients on their journey towards healing and self-discovery. Having experienced both sides of the therapeutic process, I deeply empathise with the challenges of reaching out for support and the transformative journey that therapy entails. I don't believe in passive therapy; rather, I actively engage with individuals as they navigate their quest for meaning, direction, and assistance in their lives.

While I work integratively the main modalities I draw upon are: Person Centered, CBT, Relational Pscyhodynamic and Existential. I recognise the importance of an individualised approach, understanding that each person's journey is unique. I focus on collaborating with you to tailor our sessions to meet your needs and goals. Drawing from a pluralistic perspective, I am dedicated to finding the most effective solution that resonates with you. If you have specific preferences regarding how you'd like to approach therapy, or if there's a particular therapeutic method you're curious about or would like to explore further, please feel free to share your thoughts. I'm here to listen and discuss any ideas you have regarding our therapeutic journey together. Although I have experience addressing various presenting concerns, my particular focus and expertise lie in supporting individuals dealing with issues surrounding depression and anxiety, trauma, sexuality and gender, bereavement, trauma, burnout, HIV and long-term health conditions.

I have worked clinically within the NHS and the third sector, where I've worked with individuals facing diverse challenges.
