About me

My primary mission is to provide services that address the psychological and mental health needs of young people, adults and families from mainstream groups, multicultural communities and people of colour, who have been historically under-represented in gaining access to mental health or excluded altogether to services because of their race, gender, class, sexual orientation or disability. Therefore, my goal is to optimise and improve the emotional health and overall emotional well-being of these groups and provide an evidence-based and culturally competent clinical service that addresses the psychological and mental health needs of couples, young people, adults, families, parents and carers.

I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the following areas:

  • depression,
  • ADHD/High functioning autism
  • anxiety disorders, 
  • gender dysphoria-related issues,
  • anger management,
  • relationships difficulties,
  • trauma,
  • stress management,
  • addictions,
  • attachment-related issues,
  • domestic abuse,
  • bereavement/loss and separation,
  • workplace-related problems,
  • executive wellness coaching and life skills,
  • personal development/self-esteem,
  • adolescence group work,
  • life transition and geriatric issues,
  • hoarding
  • and aftercare counselling among other areas.

Working with young people and their families

I have an interest in working with young people especially those who have challenging behaviours or may have been excluded from school.

  • behavioural difficulties
  • anger
  • ADHD/Autism
  • low attendance
  • aggression
  • depression

I encourage you to get in contact with any questions you may have about what your teenager is experiencing.

Couples counselling

A good proportion of my work is with couples. Issues can arise around:

  • conflict
  • communication
  • trust

Couples counselling will give you a safe and open space to work through your issues.

Intercultural counselling

I work with many people from marginalised groups or who are struggling with any aspect of race, racism and their identity. I am also interested in any issues that include or maybe triggered by:

  • cultural heritage
  • mixed parentage

I am very open to supporting you in whatever issue you may be facing

Gender Specialist

I am very interested in both non-racial and racial-gendered challenges in addition to:

  • identities
  • masculinities/cultural masculinity
  • gender dysphoria/sexual orientation
  • role strain


The next step

I am able to offer in-person, online and telephone counselling sessions if required. Please feel free to either email or call me to arrange an appointment.
