but let it be a part of who you will become.”

I am a qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor (pgDip) and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Further to my core training I have trained in Somatic trauma therapy, Gender and Sexual diversity as well as psychotherapeutic Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

I have experience with a range of issues that include:

Anxiety, PTS/D, trauma, depression, sexual abuse, identity struggles, relationship difficulties, sexuality and gender, grief and loss, bereavement, work related issues, anger management, chronic health conditions, illness, addictions, life crisis.

I aim to ensure a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space where the client may wish to explore who they are and the dilemmas of their life. I work with strict accordance to the ethical framework of the BACP, one of the main professional organisations that regulate the profession of counselling and psychotherapy.

Alongside my private practice I volunteer for LGBT Switchboard, Brighton. I have previous experience as a volunteer counsellor at Metro Centre, London, a counselling service for LGBTQ identified people and Arc Counselling, Wokingham.

I also work as a NHS health coach, a gender and sexual diversity trainer, and creative facilitator with young people in schools and summer camps.

I feel passionate that we all have a potential for growth, whatever that is for each of us and this motivates my work as a  counsellor, health coach and youth worker.
