Curiosity has always been a big driver in my life and I have always been interested by the diversity of life experiences. How our existences are influenced by the language we speak, the relationships we have, the land we live on. And after working in the theatre and translation field, it lead me to train as a counsellor.
I initially qualified in integrative counselling in London and went on later to train also as a nature and forest therapy guide. These two hats allow me to support people’s wellbeing and growth in various ways, individually and in groups.
And whether I accompany you as a guide or therapist, this is the compass I use for our journey together.
I’ve had experience in the third sector, offering therapy to people from all walks of life at Waterloo Community Counselling, students from London South Bank University, asylum seekers and French-speaking immigrants at the Multi-Ethnic Counselling Service.
Currently, I work in private practice and as an associate counsellor for the charity The Wilderness Foundation.
I've helped my clients deal with issues such as anxiety, depression, life transitions, bereavement, trauma and low self-esteem, among other things.
I enjoy working with a diverse range of people and I have extensive experience supporting expats/bicultural people, young adults (20-35) and people working in the arts and creative fields.
I have a particular interest in life transitions and issues surrounding mixed heritage and culture.
As a nature and forest therapy guide, I lead public and private forest therapy experiences. I particularly enjoy the group and reciprocity elements of this practice, which stand apart in an increasingly individualistic society.
