“THE QUALITY OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF DETERMINES THE QUALITY OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH EVERYTHING ELSE.”
I have been working with clients aged from 11 to 69 years old, with various nationalities, ethnicities, cultures, spiritual beliefs, gender & sexual identities, and also a wide range of issues.
Notably: anxiety, depression, grief, self-harm, lack of self-esteem, body image, existential crisis, personal development, relationships, academic pressure, work stress & career path, social anxiety, chemsex, HIV, illnesses, threat of prison, family conflicts, abusive and/or neglecting upbringing, difficulties to adjust to a life transition (teenage hood to adulthood, relocation, retirement, break up…) etc.

Background & Specific Interests
I have a background in Arts, essentially in Cinema & Theatre. I am passionate about arts, imagery, curiosity, imagination, creativity & playfulness.
I also worked over 15 years in Customer & Corporate Services in various industries, notably training new recruits. This has provided me with a great understanding of the stressful environment, imperatives & targets of the corporate world, and how it can impact on mental, emotional & physical health.
I have a non-exclusive interest in working with LGBTQI+ and straight individuals about gender identity, sexual identity, sexuality & relationships.
I also have an interest and some experience working with Asperger & High Potential individuals (otherwise known as Gifted or Highly Sensitive Persons). Please note I am not a trained Psychiatrist nor a specialist in the fields mentioned. If you need a medical support, please ask your GP for a referral to a Psychiatrist. In that case, I can still provide a secondary support to your mental & emotional health.
