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, gender non-binary, queer person with a mixed-class background. I continuously grapple with the privileges as well as the challenges that these identities and intersections bring.
I spent much of my twenties struggling to find a sense of belonging and purpose in my life. After being in therapy for many years, finding it a rich and supportive resource, at some point I realised that becoming a therapist would be an important step for me.
I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP accredited course) and later completed a systemic coaching training. I work with individuals, couples (in monogamous and non-monogamous arrangements) and organisations.
More recently I became a formal student of Processwork, which I find to be such an incredibly rich paradigm with wide-ranging applications. I particularly value the aspects of Processwork that focus on the dismantling of the ongoing, systemic oppression alive in the world today; white supremacy, racism, patriarchy, heteronormativity, transphobia, homophobia (to name a few). For an explanation of these terms as well as further learning resources, please refer to the resources page. For more information on Processwork and it's applications, you're welcome to contact me about it.
I hold high expectations of myself to practice in a way that is diversity-affirmative and anti-oppressive. Due to the privileges I hold (being white, able-bodied, middle-class, educated and (relatively) young) I have blind spots and fully welcome direct feedback and criticism, especially if I have been hurtful.
