Trying to make sense of things can feel hugely overwhelming, whilst making time for yourself may be impossible. A feeling of knowing deep down, things need to be explored.

I believe therapy should provide you with a supportive space to call your own. A space to feel comfortable enough to explore those inner most parts. To unpack, process and try things out. To reflect and reframe. 

About me and my therapy practice

I work uniquely. As an integrative therapist, I draw upon different modalities in my work, meaning each therapeutic relationship feels unique.

I believe in creating a space for you to explore and process your narrative freely - without judgement. I work with adults who come to therapy for:

  • ADHD and/or ASD
  • Neurodivergence
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Attachment
  • Trauma
  • Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria (RSD)
  • Relationships
  • Parenthood
  • Post-Natal Depression (PND)
  • Burnout
  • Help with Executive Functioning (EF) and overwhelm.

I specialise in working with clients with ADHD, and work with partners and families who care/support someone with ADHD.

I incorporate breathwork and guided meditations within my work.

Having a lived experience of ADHD and being a mother of two neurodiverse children enables me to support clients with ADHD. 

I believe that working with ADHDers in a therapeutic space is unique. It requires a dynamic way of working, full of curiosity and wonder.
