Biography

I have a strong personal belief in the value of joining empathy and compassion to critical-thinking and in-depth analysis, and believe it is crucial that I adapt my way of working to meet your individual needs. I practice evidence-based methodologies and am committed to continuing to improve my practice through ongoing deliberate practice, training and supervision. In session you will find me warm, genuinely interested and absolutely committed to you and our work together. I have seen on numerous occasions the power of therapy to radically transform people's lives for the better and it is this that motivates my practice - to achieve the best possible outcome so that you can experience life in a deeper and more fulfilling way. The main methodology I practice is Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), an evidence-based practice that is designed to create long-term permanent change rather than simply short-term coping strategies, and to achieve that outcome in a relatively short time-frame. I have completed core and advanced training in this methodology. I have a particular interest in working with issues around gender and sexuality, and problems arising from technology use and overuse including gaming, social media, and online radicalisation. I've been working as a therapist for over ten years. I'm a transgender woman, an occasional writer and a mother of two kids.
