When life feels difficult, speaking to someone can help us make sense of what we are struggling with. We are all able to grow and heal, yet sometimes we feel stuck and without options. You may benefit from some support and space to process your thoughts and feelings.
If you are struggling, I will work with you to help you move your life in the direction you want. I work with people to explore issues from the past that can sometimes be a template for how they live today. Being in therapy with me provides a safe, supportive and confidential environment for you to explore what needs some attention.
I work relationally, which means the relationship we build between us can be an important part of the therapeutic work. This is because how you connect to me might tell us something about how you relate to other people in your life. I will help you develop self-understanding about how you connect with others and with yourself, to live in a way that feels authentic for you.
Issues that might bring you to therapy include:
anxiety, panic attacks, depression and feeling low
struggling with identity - including race, gender, sexuality and LGBT+ issues
feeling stuck, lost and hopeless
change and endings
bereavement, loss and grief
In the supportive environment I provide, you can expect:
I am a qualified psychotherapist and psychotherapeutic counsellor (BACP registered) with experience working holistically with various issues. I work using an integrative approach, where I use my skills to draw on several theoretical styles to ensure we work together in a way that supports you as a unique individual. I am an LGBT+ positive and trans-friendly therapist, having undertaken extra training in this area, and I work with gender, sexuality and relationship diversity with respect.
I worked with the UK mental health charity Mind as a volunteer counsellor for several years, including conducting assessments. I run my private practice online, working with clients in the UK, across Europe and beyond. I live in Seville, Spain and have multiple experiences living outside the UK. My previous career and training was in law, and themes of equality, power and difference are essential in my approach as a psychotherapist.
