About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor who practises person centred and transactional analysis therapy. 

I am a LGBTQ+ identified therapist, and I specialise in working with Queer people to negotiate relationships, lives and family dynamics. I understand that our intersecting identities impact our lived experience, and I work with you to fully understand your identity so that we can best work together towards a fuller, more authentic, joyful and enriching life. 


Practice description

I run a practice that specialises in online counselling and therapy for the LGBTQ+ community. My online counselling services are convenient, giving you the freedom to schedule sessions that suit you. My aim is to provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to work through issues that are holding you back.

My first session

Sessions are 50 minutes in length and take place once a week. The initial meeting will be a free of charge assessment, where I can gather more information about you and we can discuss what you would like to get out of therapy, you will also have the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have about my therapeutic style, and what the sessions themselves might entail. The assessment session usually lasts between 20 and 60 minutes.

It is important that during online therapy, the environment you choose to work in is private, safe and comfortable for you. This helps to ensure our work together remains confidential and safe.
