About me and my therapy practice
I offer therapeutic coaching and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I specialise in working with identity and difference, and how people’s experience of being or feeling different to others can affect their mental and emotional wellness. I help my clients to weather their emotional storms, make sense of difficult situations and experiences, and put plans into action so they can live their best life.
My approach is based on my belief that, at our core, people all OK. I hold a safe, non-judgmental and creative space for my clients. Alongside my in-person psychotherapy practise, I also provide online coaching and counselling using video conference.
Before training as a psychotherapist, I spent 10 years as a commercial lawyer. I have also been a musician for most of my life. My own experiences of difference, together with my legal and creative backgrounds, inform my therapeutic style which is gently and humorously up-front. I invite my clients to be kind to themselves and to tap into their creativity.
Working online helps me to connect more easily with people who travel frequently for work, expats, and digital nomads, all of whom are more likely to be experiencing some of the challenges of living differently to their established norms.
