I am a fully qualified Integrative Psychotherapist, UKCP accredited and a member of the Sherwood Institute of Psychotherapy; a UKCP Member Organization and one of the foremost professional psycho-therapeutic associations in the UK. I have worked for over 10 years facilitating support groups, counseling and crisis intervention services; working professionally as a psychotherapist since 2007.
I work with a wide range of issues including relationships and other family problems, stress, anxiety, low self esteem, lack of confidence, childhood trauma, abuse, depression, loneliness, career and/or problems at work, sexuality, 'coming out', dealing with homophobia, culture shock and migration issues, health, loss, bereavement and grief as well as search for meaning in life.
I have worked within the LGBT community for over a decade, both as a group facilitator and as psychotherapist. I work to a gay and trans affirmative model whereby peoples sexuality and gender identity is respected and understood without being pathologised. It is absolutely essential that people can discuss and explore their sexuality and/or gender in a supportive and non-judgmental space. In addition to this, my knowledge and familiarity enables me to help normalise experiences, provide explanations and empower my clients; increasing self awareness, self confidence and enabling decision making, where this is appropriate.
I would also like to stress that not all LGBT clients come to me with issues around their sexuality and/or gender. Relationship problems, break-ups, work/career changes, family problems etc. (see home page) are common problems to us all. However, having a therapist who is experienced and knowledgeable about LGBT life means that these problems can be addressed appropriately, in the right context, without fear of homophobia, transphobia or just plain ignorance.
