  • I am somatically orientated, which means I invite the whole body into the therapeutic experience. I might ask you questions like "where do you experience that in your body when you talk", for example. My background is working with individuals struggling with substance misuse. I worked from a harm reduction perspective, offering holistic methods such as auricular acupuncture for detox, as part of a holistic approach to care. From here my work took me on a journey that was a contrast between social justice focussed work and exploration of bodywork, culminating in an MA in Somatic Psychotherapy. I am interested in people who like to explore themselves and ask questions about life and challenge the standard conventions. Over the years I have worked with couples and individuals who identify as poly, queer, questioning non-traditional. Clients often present exploring subjects like kink BDSM, sexuality, and gender identity. I enjoy the continual curiosity of the work. My aim is the create a safe non-judgmental platform where you can be your full self.
