About me

As a therapist, I offer a safe and confidential space to help you make sense of life's twists and turns. As human beings in a modern, complicated and fast paced world we can often feel stuck and unsure of which way to go. My job is to help you create something meaningful out of the cards that you have been dealt, to feel more connected in the world and to live as authentically as possible.

As a therapist, I believe that…

– There are often possibilities that we haven’t considered.

– Our past influences us, but cannot dictate who we are today, and who we are today, does not need to be who we are forever.

– There is no perfect way of living and we must each find a way that works best for us; trial and error is a given.

– We all have the capacity to live a rich and meaningful life and this is made more likely when we engage with our personal existence and accept responsibility for our part in it.

– We live in a world full of other beings and feeling connected to the life and systems around us is a fundamental part of being human.

Some people are looking for a directive experience in therapy (solutions, techniques, and exercises) however, generally speaking, I don’t work in this way. Instead, I aim to support you in embracing your life, helping you to accept the things that are unchangeable and embrace the opportunities to change. I do not diagnose or label and I believe that on some fundamental level, we are all doing our best to navigate an inherently complicated existence.

I offer both indoor and walking therapy.

I am a neuro-affirming therapist and a straight ally.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am able to offer outdoor therapy, a very diverse way of working that can be either sitting or walking, in the woods, near the canal, or by the beach. This way of working is often experienced as less intense, and it considers meaningful connection with the natural world as a fundamental human quality.
