It is a deep privilege for me to be doing this work and I particularly enjoy working with people around the themes of gender, sexuality and finding one's unique and authentic expression in the world.
I am a white, able-bodied, gender queer person with a mixed-class background. I continuously work to process the privileges as well as the challenges that these identities and intersections bring. I hold high expectations of myself to practice in a way that is diversity-affirmative and anti-oppressive. Due to the privileges I hold I have blind spots and fully welcome direct feedback and criticism, especially if I have been hurtful. I work with individuals, couples (in monogamous and non-monogamous arrangements) and families.
I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP accredited course) and later completed a systemic coaching training.
More recently I became a diploma student of Processwork (Process-oriented Psychology), an incredibly rich paradigm with wide-ranging applications. I particularly value Worldwork which is an aspect of Processwork that focuses on understanding power, privilege and rank within different groups of people. Worldwork supports the development of a deeper understanding of the ongoing, systemic oppression/s alive in the world today such as racism, patriarchy and homophobia. For more information on Processwork and it's applications, you're welcome to contact me about it.
In my spare time I can often be found taking personal and professional development courses, running and walking outdoors, doing yoga, gardening and DIY, having rich conversations and dancing in my living room.
