I’m Here to Help.

I am a BACP registered Humanistic Integrative therapist offering either short or long term counselling/psychotherapy.

I am a LGBTQIA+ and trauma informed therapist and welcome people of all backgrounds.

My Background

My work background is in fundraising and marketing for campaign organisations and charities focussing on human rights, the environment and climate change. I’ve been on my own journey of self discovery and self development through travels around the world, and experience with yoga, Buddhism, shamanic practices, plant medicines, breathwork etc. This eventually led me to 5 years of training to become a therapist and I’m now excited to help and support others with their own journeys to know themselves better.

My Approach & Philosophy

I create a safe space for you to explore who you are and where you’ve come from and how you’d like to be. All of you is welcome. We’ll mostly be talking but we will also take time to check into the body and to breathe and allow space to feel and be.

My main inspiration is the person centred therapy approach where you, the client, know best what is going on for you. But also sometimes I will make some interpretations to help you make sense of yourself and what might be going on for you in the room with me and in your life outside. By getting to know ourselves better we can gently and compassionately understand ourselves and our blocks and defences. And then we can start to make choices about how to be and experiment with new ways of being.

Other areas that I may draw on to help our work together may include shamanic practices, polyvagal theory, body based psychotherapy approaches, yoga, and breath work.

I am also interested in working with people who are using traditional plant medicines and psychedelics for their healing to help with preparation and integration.

I am currently working on zoom or offer walking in nature sessions in Highgate Woods or Alexandra Palace Park with in person in the room sessions to start soon.  My fees are £65-£75 for a 50 minute session.
