About me

 

I am a Person-Centred/integrative therapist with over 10 years experience in working with gender and sexual minority clients. I am accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am in private practice in New Cross SE14 in South East London.  I also see clients at London Bridge SE1 and via Skype.  I  deliver training for therapists in working with BDSM/Kink and offer clinical supervision and consultation.

Sexual & Gender Identity:
Bisexual - Female

Experience and approach

Specific experience and training:

I work in a non-pathologising approach with gender, relationship and sexual diversity clients, in private practice and (post qualifying) as a volunteer counsellor for the Metro Centre (an LGBT health and advice centre based in Greenwich). 

I have extensive experience of offering therapy to gender and sexual diversity clients, including queer, gender queer, non-binary and trans clients; lesbian, gay men, bisexual men and women, polyamorous, kink/BDSM identified clients and those questioning or experiencing distress around their gender, sexual identity or sexual practices.

My article, A Kink in the Process was published in July 2010 by Therapy Today. The article addresses the need for therapists to become informed in order to work safely with kink/BDSM clients.

I deliver training for Pink Therapy and other training organizations for therapists on Understanding Kink and BDSM.

I completed the Essentials in Sexual Minority Therapy programme in 2008 and the first 1 year Certificate in Sexual Minority Therapy in 2010 - both with Pink Therapy and I continue to pursue training and professional development around counselling, supervision and issues of gender and sexuality.  I am currently training as a psychosexual and relationship therapist.

Therapies Practiced:
Counselling, Psychosexual therapy, Psychotherapy, Supervision/Consultation.
Specialisms and interests:
I am experienced in working with young people and adults and with people in a range of relationship styles including monogamous, polyamorous and open relationships and kink and BDSM relationships.  I work with all members of the 'kink community' and those who do not identify as such but are questioning or exploring this aspect of their sexuality, regardless of their sexual orientation. I work with people exploring their sexuality and how they experience their gender identity.
Theoretical approach:
Couple Therapy, Humanistic, Integrative, Person-Centred, Relational.
Ethical Framework:
