Membership Body

I am a trainee member of both the BACP and the NCS. This means that I follow their ethical frameworks, and they are the bodies that handle any complaints.

What is my therapuetic modality?

I offer person-centred therapy. You can read more about the core principles here. In a nutshell, person-centred therapy sees you as the expert in yourself. The therapists role is to work alongside you to support you to find the answers you need.

I work in a very relational manner – this means that whilst we work on supporting you, you will get to know me reasonably well. It’s a big ask to expect people to be vulnerable with their therapist, and I am comfortable in being vulnerable with clients. It’s the thing I valued the most in my own personal therapy. If you have any questions about therapy with myself, you are welcome to contact me here.

What can I help with?

I work with a range of issues, including:

  • Bereavement
  • Anger Issues
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sexuality
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Family Issues
  • Abuse
  • Chronic Illness & Disability
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Self-Harm & Suicide

If you would like to know if I can work with you, please contact me, and we can have a brief discussion about your needs. Sometimes I refer people on, this is to ensure that they receive the most appropriate care and support.

What are my specialisms?

You will find several articles about my experiences with both disability and LGBTQIA issues throughout my website. You can also follow my facebook, twitter and instagram.

Geek Culture

I’m a big fan of the therapeutic benefits of geek culture – from relating to TV/movie characters and memes to using things such as TTRPGs and LARPs in the therapy room.

Why did I choose these specialisms?

I am very open about my own identity within both the LGBTQIA+ community and as a disabled person. It is for this reason that I was drawn to these areas of support. The below images show some information about these identities.
