Philosophy

I believe that psychological health can be improved through self-awareness and connection; knowing yourself, your values, and feeling connected to the people and things you care about. It is so easy to feel lost in this confusing world; particularly when we are stressed, overwhelmed, or attempting to deal with emotional wounds. For my clients I hope to be a step toward reconnecting with what they want, and need, to lead a fulfilling life.

Approach

My therapeutic approach is integrative and I adapt the therapeutic tools and methods I use to suit the client I am working with. The therapeutic approaches I draw from most frequently are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy. I describe myself as a mindful practitioner. I wholeheartedly believe in the importance of being in the moment with my clients, truly hearing, seeing and understanding their experience in order to help more effectively.

I am also trained in Behavioural Family Therapy and I am experienced in working with families, and children and young people.

I value the diversity of the clients I see, and I practice with cultural humility. This means that I am attentive of the aspects of a client’s identity that are most important and relevant for them. I have experience working with clients from a range of ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds and with issues surrounding aspects of identity such as sexuality, gender, race and heritage.

Motivation

I feel privileged every time a new client shares their story with me and I am invited to build a helping relationship with them. The process of making sense of a client’s difficulties, supporting them to foster hope, and facilitating positive changes is hugely rewarding. The complexity of human experience and emotion also means that no two clients, or sessions, are the same.

About Me

I grew up in inner-city Birmingham and have had a range of diverse life experiences. These experiences have grounded me with a strong sense of who I am and what is important to me. I aim to bring this into my work and hope that clients experience me as approachable, authentic, and, most importantly, helpful!
