If you are struggling, I am here to listen and to navigate these waters with you. I offer face to face counselling based in Lincoln which is trauma-informed, intersectional, and empowerment based.
My specialisms include working with clients who have experienced trauma such as sexual or domestic violence (recent or historical), as well as members of the LGBTQ+ community. Our sessions will be client-led, guided by you, and we will work at your pace. I incorporate a number of different approaches into my work in order to tailor it personally to you and what you feel you need.
Starting therapy can be a daunting experience, especially if you are a member of a marginalised group. It is very important to me that my therapy is based within an understanding of intersectionality and how systemic prejudice affects individuals in a complex way, often compounding the trauma you might face. You can feel reassured that your space with me is a place where you can express yourself freely.
In my practise I endeavour to create a safe space where I enter into your unique sphere of existence. I will frequently use metaphor as a vehicle to explore your innermost feelings and lay them out between us, enabling us both to make sense of them. I use a holistic approach to explore you as your entire being, the bigger picture of you, rather than a clinical deconstruction that reduces you to diagnosis or acronyms.
I work with all clients from all walks of life, backgrounds, professions, and presenting issues, and I have years of experience in working with trauma and sexual violence. I recognise the complexity of trauma and the impact it can have on someone’s life, that it is often multi-faceted, a complicated tapestry with no simple beginning or end. This journey may take us through your relationships (past and present), as well as deconstructing harmful myths and narratives that may have disempowered you.
I welcome clients with neurodiverse traits to please contact me to discuss how best we can navigate therapy together. Just because you may be non-verbal or communicate in an “unconventional” manner does not mean your emotional experiences are less valid or less worthy of being authentically explored.
My specialisms also include working with LGBTQ+ and TBI clients on all issues, including exploring gender dysphoria, discrimination, and systemic abuse.
You deserve to heal, no matter what.
