Hi and welcome.
I am a qualified therapist trained both in psychodynamic counselling and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). My oractice is informed by Existentialism and Systemic thinking.

If you are struggling in life and going through a tough time, suffering from relationship issues, low mood, depression, anxiety, life transitions, work stress/burnout, bereavement, pet-loss, suffering from the pain of an addicted loved one, or you are not sure what yet, I am here to listen and help.

I work in-person and online (via Zoom and WhatsApp). I work online only with people living and resident in UK.

I am queer fluid, an LGBTIQA+ ally, and I am sex-positive. I am neurodivergent-affirmative and pro-self-advocacy (knowing yourself, knowing your needs, and knowing how to get what you need). I am a Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity (GSRD)-affirmative individual. I am anti-racist. I value diversity and I am against discrimination in all its forms. However, I know I must do my best to learn and be vigilant and aware of my blind spots.

For more information about me and how we can work together, you can check or contact me.
