I am an experienced counsellor, living in France and working online with clients from a range of intersectional backgrounds in the UK, Europe, and beyond.
My professional training draws upon two main traditions of psychotherapy: psychodynamic and humanistic. I am particularly interested in concepts such as early-life attachment and conditions of worth as a way of understanding present moment problems. My academic experience includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, existential and feminist/gender approaches to therapy. I aim to integrate these modalities to tailor how I work with each client.
I was drawn to the profession after working for a long time in careers that were seemingly ‘successful‘ but always unfulfilling.
It was not until I embarked upon my own long-term personal therapy and personal-development journey, that I realised how self-awareness, self-kindness and self-respect could reshape my relationship with myself and the world around me.
Since qualifying as a therapist in London, I have taken a particular interest in how intersectional identity aspects – such as gender, sexuality, race, and class – are factors that require deeper thought within personal therapy.
Aside from my professional qualifications in therapeutic counselling, bereavement and online therapy, I have a first-class bachelors degree in Psychology and a master of social science degree in Gender Studies (specialising in intersectionality and change).
As a BACP Registered Member, I adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. This means that I ensure our work together is ethical, follows good practice, and focuses on your needs above all else.
My work online started long before COVID restrictions made online therapy more commonplace, and acceptable. I see working online as a valid and essential way of delivering psychological support to people wherever they are.
