Every client is interested in their therapist, and you should be, it wouldn’t be usual for a human to not be curious about another.

It can also be about wishing to understand the journey that has a led anyone to want to be a therapist.

In my 20’s I had therapy, its what led me to believe that a positive therapeutic situation can be life changing.

Every hypno-psychotherapist you might go to or engage with is different and works in slightly different ways.

The aim of my therapeutic room is about creating a safe, confidential space for you to explore challenging emotions and feelings.

You can work on resilience and self compassion at any time, you do not need to be in crisis. 

I work in an instinctive adaptive manner and through 6 years of client work and training I can work alongside you towards the goals you want to achieve for yourself, bringing focus and clarity. 

I currently hold the CHP(NC) and am working towards ADHP(NC) with full UKCP accreditation.

I am also a member of the The National Society of Talking Therapies, and the Association of Cognitive Behavioural Science

I’m also a mental health columnist in both OxMag and Fyne Times.

1st PoC Chair of Oxford Pride, I am working towards increasing visibility for marginalised communities and facilitating awareness and education.

Every persons goals, wants and fears are different and thats why my therapeutic style is not prescriptive, perfectly tailored for you, your situation and your life. We will use a variety of differing tools to achieve results that include mindfulness based cognitive therapy, hypnosis, self hypnosis, out of session tasks and psychotherapeutic interventions. 

Through my self awareness and cultural sensitivity we can create a safe confidential space for you to explore and evaluate your goals. 

You bring solutions with you, I’m here to get you to wherever it is you want to be.

I began my training in 2013 with The National College of Hypno-Psychotherapy.

I picked a comprehensive course to what will be a Masters Level Advanced Diploma in Hypno-Psychotherapy. My course ensured I am comprehensibly trained, independently supervised by an internationally renowned Hypno-Psychotherapist and meet the criteria of ongoing continuing professional development.

I am currently serving as the Diversity & Equalities Officer at the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, where I presented on 50 Shades of Sexuality at the 2018 conference.

I am currently a Trainee member of UKCP Listed Here, my trainee status indicates that I have met the required educational standards and training, can start in private practice.

I have over 600 client hours behind me in my specialist areas around GSRD, race and ethnicity.

I personally believe seeing a psychotherapist who holds an internationally recognised accreditation is important and vital to ensure standard of a psychotherapists education. I abide by the UKCP ethics and complaints policies and procedures which can be viewed here.

Along with UKCP required private supervision I also attend a Clinical Discussion Group with Pink Therapy.

Your peace of mind that I and those who support me are working effectively towards your goals.

Pink Therapy is the UK’s largest independent therapy organisation working with gender and sexual diversity clients.

I am insured as a trainee Hypno-Psychotherapist for your complete peace of mind through Balens specialist insurers as part of the UKCP scheme.
