Finding meaning and purpose in life

I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which we can explore and find meaning in the situation, challenge or struggle that is being presented in your life. The core of my practice lies in the belief that every crisis is an opportunity for learning, growth, and for developing our fullest potential as human and spiritual beings.
 

I have been practising as a Psychosynthesis counsellor since I completed my training in January 2018 at the Psychosynthesis Trust. I have since worked with clients survivors of gender-based violence, particularly domestic abuse and sexual violence. In addition, I have 3 years of experience working LGBTQ+ clients. Issues I particular have experience in working with are HIV, coming out, relationships, feelings of shame, family dynamics, chemsex, sex and sexuality.


My personal journey and my identity struggles have motivated me to work particularly with the LGBTQ+ community which I am part of. Personal therapy has been crucial in understanding my own issues around sex and gender identity, and has helped me to learn to cultivate self-love and acceptance as I am and choose to be, which was an experience of "coming home". For this reason I have chosen to work with the LGBTQ+ community, with the hope of supporting other people's journeys in overcoming barriers and difficulties, enabling and facilitating a connection with their inner source of healing and wisdom.


My therapeutic approach includes talking as well as working more experientially when and if appropriate, to enable a deeper understanding of the crisis or dilemma being presented, and a deeper understanding of oneself.
