Practice description

I am an LGBTQ+/Queer Person-Centred Counsellor and Supervisor, accredited and registered with the National Counselling Society. I offer long or short term, individual counselling online and in person in East London and Worthing, West Sussex. I am Queer Non Binary and use They/Them pronouns.

I am an experienced Counsellor and Supervisor in the LGBTQ+ / Gender Sexuality and Relationship Diversity and Queer community. I work in Private Practice and at London Friend. I work with people with all kinds of issues and concerns and in differing levels of distress. I work with individual adults (18+) who are gay, bisexual, straight, asexual, queer, trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, cis, agender, intersex, or in some way questioning and trying to understand issues around their sexuality or gender. I am committed to providing an inclusive, welcoming, safe and confidential space.

I work from a non-pathologising understanding of mental health issues and emotional distress. I also work with people who may find it more difficult to access counselling and therapy including people who:

  • experience neurodiversity such as ASD or ADHD
  • hear voices
  • have beliefs and experiences that others find unusual
  • in emotional or psychological crisis
  • in consensual non-monogamous or poly relationships
  • people labelled with PTSD, schizophrenia or a personality disorder.
