About me and my therapy practice

I'm an experienced Online & Outdoor Counsellor. My key client groups are from the International community, such as Expats, Repats, and Adult Third-Culture Kids. Others are often from unconventional backgrounds or lifestyles.

Why do I focus on the International community?

I recognise that our rich life experiences can be wonderful, but they can also be filled with hidden challenges that can make dealing with life's ups and downs more complicated.

For example:

  • Navigating cultural adjustment, different cultural compasses and underlying beliefs/expectations
  • Accumulation of hidden losses and unresolved grief
  • Complex identity, sense of self, and belonging

The hidden challenges could lead to internal conflicts and unhelpful coping mechanisms.

Sometimes, we just want to be understood and supported by someone who has similar lived experiences, who can truly connect and empathise with us without so many words.

Do you struggle with some of these?

  • Anxiety, stress, and feeling overwhelmed at work or in your relationships
  • Low mood and depression, and sometimes, you can’t quite put your finger on the reasons
  • Social anxiety and difficulty building/maintaining meaningful relationships
  • Your identity, sense of self, belonging, and life choices
  • Homesickness, social/work cultural adjustment
  • People-pleasing tendencies and boundary issues
  • Perfectionism and self-criticism
  • Guilt, shame, and regrets 

Practice description

How can I help?

That depends on what you hope to achieve from counselling. Maybe that’s to gain more clarity and self-trust, feel more in control of your life journey, or feel lighter and know that you’ll be OK even if things are not OK. If developing different coping skills is what you need, it’s about finding what’s relevant for you and for your life now.

Our session is a dedicated time in a safe zone for you to explore, process, reflect and experiment. It’s for you to discover 'you' and the answers that are right for you.

At the centre of my approach are: developing self-awareness, befriending/tolerating emotions, building self-compassion and self-trust. I aim to help you connect to the different aspects of yourself, so you can respond to your internal and external challenges differently.

A little about me

I would describe my life journey as 'colourful', with different cultures and backgrounds, and various shades of life and work experiences. Therefore, my approach is affirming, compassionate, and sensitive to cultural and lifestyle choices and challenges.

I’m an integrative and trauma-informed counsellor. This means I'm trained in multiple approaches to therapy and I integrate different approaches into my work, depending on my client's needs. It also means I understand how trauma and long-term negative experiences could affect our body and mind - our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

I often lean into creativity in my work. You can expect anything from laughter and tears, colours and metaphors, to the odd grunting and jumping around (hopefully, together!), although I tend to adapt my delivery depending on your style.

Available services

  • I offer one-to-one counselling to adults (18+).
  • Online Counselling, including Email Counselling (UK & Thailand)
  • Outdoor Counselling (Warwick)
  • 90-minute Single Session (an alternative to traditional counselling)

Please feel free to email me to ask further questions or book an intro session. 

My first session

Introductory call

I offer a free 15-minute introductory chat for us to get a sense of each other, ask questions, and see if we may be the right fit.

I get that 15 minutes may not feel like much to determine if I'm the right counsellor for you. I encourage you to consider how you feel when you're talking to me...

  • Do you feel comfortable enough just talking to me in general?
  • Do you feel able to ask me questions?
  • Do you feel that I'm empathetic and interested in what you have to say?
  • Do my responses feel relevant, respectful, and genuine to you?

If you're feeling alone, overwhelmed, and maybe a little frustrated and conflicted right now, you're not alone. Many of us experienced similar struggles at some point in life. But if you’ve been feeling this way for a while and it’s negatively impacting your life and relationships, let’s work through it together.

I'm a therapist who has also been a client, I remember this journey well. I admire your drive to create change in your life. I hope you'll find what you're looking for.

About me and my therapy practice

I'm an experienced Online & Outdoor Counsellor. Part of my work is supporting Expats, Repats, and adult Third-Culture Kids.

Our rich life experiences are wonderful, but I also recognise the challenges that could come with being multicultural - the complexity of having different cultural compasses and underlying beliefs, the hidden losses and unresolved grief, and the struggles we may face with our identity, sense of self, and belonging. Some of the hidden challenges could lead to internal conflicts and unhelpful coping mechanisms. If you've been struggling, let's work through it all together.

I aim to empathetically and compassionately work with your needs and goals, whether that’s to offload and figure things out, or to understand, heal and grow from your experiences.

About my practice

I see a counselling relationship as a partnership, and our session is a dedicated time in a safe zone for you to explore, process, reflect, experiment, and discover 'you', and the answers that are right for you.

I often lean into creativity in my work. You can expect anything from laughter and tears, colours and metaphors, to the odd grunting and jumping around.

I would say that developing self-awareness, befriending and tolerating emotions, and building self-compassion are at the centre of my approach. I aim to help you connect to the different aspects of yourself, and build a greater understanding of what your senses may be trying to tell you, so you can respond to your internal and external challenges differently.

My first session

I offer a free 15-minute introductory chat for us to get a sense of each other, ask questions, and see if we may be the right fit.

I get that 15 minutes may not feel like much to determine if I'm the right counsellor for you. I would encourage you to consider how you're feeling when you're talking to me...

  • Do you feel comfortable enough just talking to me in general?
  • Do you feel that I'm empathetic and interested in what you have to say?
  • Do my responses feel relevant, respectful, and genuine to you?

It's a very personal journey and you are not obligated to have counselling with me after the intro session.

So if you're feeling alone, overwhelmed, and maybe a little frustrated and embarrassed right now, you're not alone. Many of us experienced similar struggles at some point in life. But if you’ve been feeling this way for a while and it’s negatively impacting your life and relationships, something may need your attention.

I'm a therapist who has also been a client, I remember this journey well. I admire your drive to create change in your life. I hope you'll find what you're looking for.
