Member Status: Accredited

Location: Hastings

During the decade that I have been working with clients I’ve supported them with a variety of issues, especially around identity and gaining deeper self-knowledge, around marginalisation, and dealing with bigotry and injustice, but also on major life changes, career counselling, and emotional literacy.
Some clients use the space to gain self awareness, some to bring about change in their life within a supportive environment in which to reflect and work through fears and trauma, and some wish to resolve specific issues which have recently arisen.

Specific issues clients bring may include frustration with repeating patterns of destructive behaviour, low self-esteem and feelings of hopelessness, struggling to form or maintain meaningful relationships, issues around trust and intimacy, feeling overwhelmed or dissatisfied with their life but not knowing how to change it, or a mixture of issues or different issues.

​Sometimes people are in crisis, such as suffering from burnout, having significant relationship issues, feeling like they don't want to live anymore, or having issues with their identity and sense of self.
All of these are valid reasons to seek therapy, whether in crisis or not.

I regard therapy as a contained space in which to explore all issues relating to Self, our lifestyle, our life philosophy, relationships, work, play, and our way of relating to ourselves and the world.
No one is 'not ill enough' for therapy. Therapy is to explore, to gain insight, to heal, and to evolve.

I practice body/fat positive and Feminist Therapy.
