About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Nat (he/him)

Most people describe me as easy going, open, friendly, and say that my calm nature is contagious. I approach life with open-mindedness and very much enjoy challenging "the norm".

More than anything, people tell me that saying things out-loud and sharing what they've bottled up inside makes them feel lighter, and helps unravel the mental chaos. So whether you're overwhelmed by your feelings, struggling with traumatic life events, or trying to make sense of your world, my priority is to make talking things through as comfortable as possible. In my experience, knowing that you’re speaking with a genuine human being is a huge part of this, so if you choose counselling with me, I hope you'll find me professional, but authentic and relatable, not just a blank slate.


I work with general difficulties such as anxiety, depression, loss, and self-esteem.

I also have specific experience helping people navigate the impacts of trauma and abuse; impacts that can cause intense anxiety/depression, isolation, suicidal feelings, and self-defeating thoughts. Although these experiences leave a huge mark, I've seen how counselling can help create a more positive outlook.

A big passion of mine is working with people who feel stigmatised, repressed, or alienated by the pressures and judgment of society. In a world full of rigid labels and black & white views, we often mask parts of ourselves to fit in, which can be suffocating and demoralising. Although I can't change the world, I can offer you a small haven of acceptance where you can talk openly and be yourself.

As such, I welcome conversations on gender, sexuality, relationship diversity, neurodiversity, and unconventional life choices.

Practice description

What to expect:

In our sessions, we'll explore your concerns, try to understand things better, and see if we can find a way to help you feel less burdened. This can involve practicing acceptance, looking for insight, taking a fresh perspective, processing hard emotions and memories, identifying unproductive thought processes, or simply letting things out and decompressing.

Because everyone's different, I find sessions differ from person to person, so always approach counselling as a collaboration/exploration rather than a 'treatment'. I'll sometimes ask questions, share my knowledge, offer observations, or make a suggestion, but won't patronise you or pressure you into anything that doesn't feel right.

I can't promise I've got all the answers, but can promise you'll always get my full attention and that I genuinely care. I'll always meet you where you're at, and accept you how you are, whether you need to laugh, cry, swear, or just have a moan.

I value straightforward discussion rather than cold analysis or textbook exercises, and will always be transparent. You won't be judged or dismissed, and we'll always take things at your pace.

I also offer walk & talk counselling for people who enjoy being outdoors or find the traditional therapy setting a bit too intense.

Relationship Therapy:

If you and your partner/friend/family member want to communicate better, build connection, or tackle a resentment, having an impartial person present can give a fresh perspective, stop arguments escalating, and offer the safety to promote honest conversations. Whatever it is, I believe that change can happen when we understand and empathise with each-other.

I also have experience with LGBTQIA+ relationships, as well as ethical non-monogamy and kink awareness.

My first session

It's important to me that you feel as comfortable as possible, and I understand meeting a new therapist can be nerve-wracking, just like meeting anyone for the first time! So please contact me or book a FREE 15 minute consultation if you have any questions or want to test the water before booking a session.
