Neuro-affirming therapy

We don’t always land on our feet, but I can help you to get back up.

With me, you’ll be safe, you’ll be heard, and you’ll be free to be who you are.

Neuro-affirming therapy

I’ll help you to:

  • Understand and accept who you are

  • Cultivate healthier relationships

  • Leverage your strengths

  • Set healthier boundaries

  • Increase your self worth

  • Feel happier and less anxious

  • Enjoy life more

We’ll work closely together ('attachment-based'), only use stuff that works ('evidence-based'), also work on your trauma ('trauma-informed'), and not forget what you bring to the table! ('strengths-based').

Are you ready to live life in full colour?
Therapy can sometimes feel clinical, but I do things a bit differently...

My approach

I want to see your favourite cat videos and sci-fi memes, and to hear all about your current SPINs.  

I’m passionate about self-care and self-compassion, and will actively role model this for you.​ Given I’m a psychology nerd, I’ll aim to provide you with the latest tools, research, podcasts and apps. 

I spend a significant amount of time exploring what you think good therapy looks and feels like, and what you want from therapy. I believe (and will actively role model) in striving to have authentic and rich connections with people who understand and accept you the way you are- quirks and all. 


Tools I use

In therapy sessions, I am led by you and your goals. When able to, I work intuitively to interweave a myriad of tools including these approaches:

  • Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)

  • Structural Dissociation Therapy and Internal Family Systems (‘Parts Work’)

  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) adapted to our neurokin

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT and RO-DBT- only the ND affirming parts!)

  • Schema Therapy adapted to neurokin, only where respectful and appropriate

I offer a CBT-free zone!

CBT is generally neither effective nor respectful to our neurokin

I'm also a Buddhist who believes that living a life with compassion towards yourself and others is critical
