About me and my therapy practice
I work with adults and adolescents who are, for a variety of reasons, dealing with discomfort throughout their daily lives. This can be internal (who am I? Am I enough? What am I here for?), external or, more often, a messy combination of the above. I work with people like you who are looking for a space to look at what works and doesn't in their lives, finding patterns and using insight to guide real, meaningful change. I have done a lot of work the LGBT+ clients as well as Gypsies & Travellers. You might be coming to therapy to cope better, to examine recent or historical trauma or to simply gain insight. It is what we make it.
Sessions with me involve a lot of exploration of who you are and what is important to you. Our relationship will be a key part of this. My perspective as a young male therapist may differ to experiences of therapy you have had before or to what you may have been expecting, and this should bring up new insights and avenues to explore.
My theoretical approach is a mixture of Existential and Relational approaches to therapy, although solution-focused elements can be brought in if it seems appropriate.
It can be hard to know where to turn when we're struggling. I offer an inviting space that is warm yet challenging to help you to examine what's important and make decisions about what the future should be. The world we live in can throw up a lot of questions about identity, purpose and meaning. Together we can work out what you need, and help you get it.
I am currently working online through video calls until it is safe to do otherwise, at which point my practice will be in South East London.
I provide a welcoming space for creative exploration of who you are, what is going on for you and what changes we want to make.
You decide the content that you bring and what we work with. They're your sessions.
A small number of concessionary spaces are available, with priority for these given to Gypsy or Traveller clients and LGBT+ clients.
My first session
An initial session with me feels different to subsequent ones because it features a lot more of me talking at the beginning than it will later on; I outline the way I work and make sure we agree. After this, I try not to use formats and formulas and I don't necessarily ask for an exhaustive history. I meet you as you are today and we look at what problems you're coming with in the here and now. This can be historical content, of course, but it is up to you what you bring.
This first session will also be influenced by how long you want to work together: short term work (minimum 12 sessions) needs to be planned for differently to longer term or open-ended work. We can discuss this beforehand over the phone or through emails.

About me and my therapy practice
I deliver training in working with individuals from Gypsy, Roma & Traveller backgrounds. This training involves exploring the historical context of these groups in the UK, looking at what some of the modern manifestations of these and other issues can be, what this can be like for the individual as well as giving some useful direct tips. I talk about outside agencies who can help and bring in intersectional thinking, particularly around being LGBT+ or disabled.
The training can be delivered in person or online. To individuals or organisations.
