I have extensive experience working with extreme trauma, grief, sexuality, gender, eating disorders, emotional and physical abuse and complex mental health concerns as well as anxiety and depression.
I will provide a safe and confidential space for you to discuss concerns, helping you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and others. I have worked with clients of all backgrounds, ages, cultures, sexual orientations and religions.
Areas I specialise in:
Don't worry if you can't see your own concern in this list. I have worked with hundreds of clients - the most important part of therapy is having the space to feel safe to explore what you are experiencing.

(not about how you meticulously arrange your shampoo bottles).
This is concerning intrusive thoughts and routine behaviours that, if they aren't carried out properly, bad things will happen
