About me

Don’t you think it’s about time sex, pleasure and relationships, being a taboo subject, became a thing of the past?

Well, I do.

Sex and pleasure is not a shameful act.

In fact it’s part of being human, but it can be shameful to talk about…

…  then it doesn’t get talked about which can lead to unfulfilling relationships and unsatisfying sex.

What if you could talk to someone who was not going to judge you?

Instead, hold you, in all your shame and discomfort, as we look at some of the conditions and beliefs adopted from culture and society to give you space to transform into a new version of yourself where you can feel liberated and fulfilled… living your fullest and truest raw and authentic self… 

Training, qualifications & experience

For the last two years, I delved deep and began working with sexuality and relationships. 

I have worked at various sexuality based festivals, retreats and workshops, worldwide, in different capacities from helping with the set up and take down of the festival, the organisational and administrative side, to being a facilitators’ assistant, to holding emotional support spaces, and taking the lead on workshops.

I work somatically with the body, keeping in mind a persons wholeness, inclusive of the mind, body, and spirit.

I hold groups and offer 1:1 spiritual mentoring and guidance to people who are experiencing Kundalini awakenings or who wish to learn to trust their intuition. Spirituality is a key feature in my practice. 

I’ve had experience of working with people who have experienced sexual trauma, non-abusing parents of sexually abused children, addiction/dependency, and anxiety. 

Qualifications include:

  • Various trainings on sex, sexuality and relationships. 
  • BA (Hons) in Counselling
  • Motivational Enhancement Therapy for addiction
  • The Rewind Technique for Trauma and PTSD.
  • PGCE in Training and Education

For three years, I worked as a tutor, teaching a range of counselling courses and qualifications levels 2-5. This included core qualifications and individual modules including Personal Development.

I have overseen and taken the lead on internal marking and assessing.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
