My Therapy Practice

I am a Relational, Humanistic & Integrative therapist using Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy as my primary therapeutic model, which I complement with elements of Trauma-Focussed CBT, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Neuropsychology, and Brainspotting.

qualified Psychologist and specialist in psychological trauma, I work with a trauma-informed approach,

co-creating and promoting personal empowerment and spontaneity of expression.


Empathetic in nature, with excellent communication skills, my personal and professional ethics are based on attunement, independence, autonomy, and inclusion.

As a Gender, Sex and Relationship Diversity Therapist, my practice is LGBTQ+ inclusive. I am committed to working with people whose native language is not English. My practice is disability-friendly, as well as neurodiversity-informed. I am an ADHD expert by experience.
