I am a neuro-divergent (Adhd/ Autism/Dyspraxia) humanistic and Integrative psychotherapist. I use a variety of psychological and creative approaches (different expressive tools such as objects, art, writing, movement, and breathwork) to best fit the issues you wish to explore.
My own experiences of late diagnosis bought me both validation and a huge re-evaluation of all areas of my life. Therefore, I am here to offer you a safe, confidential space to share your own story, to unpack, explore and process your thoughts and feelings during this time. This may uncover old wounds and losses. It may also provide new insights and a path forward.
As a psychotherapist, I have over 15 years of experience working with adults with a range of neuro-variance and co-occurring mental health issues in both the NHS and Charity sectors. I am also a trained EMDR therapist and have experience in working with PTSD, and complex trauma alongside issues of race, culture and identity.
I am committed to helping clients work through harmful internalised messages that can gravely impact their sense of self and belonging. This may involve multiple and intertwining oppressions (race, class age, gender, sexuality) alongside being a neurodivergent adult /parent.

Working together at your own pace, we can identify helpful/unhelpful coping strategies, and glean insights whilst building on your strengths and resources.
I believe passionately in the potential of therapy to help us accept ourselves with compassion. To help recover our true selves and find new and healthy ways of relating to ourselves, others and our environment.
If you would like to start your journey of exploration in a warm and relaxed environment, I would be honoured to support you to lead a freer, richer, authentic way of life.
I offer a one-off post-diagnostic session, short (6 sessions) medium (12 sessions) and long-term therapy (12 + sessions) depending on your wishes and needs.
