Background

I have over 10 years experience working in the public sector with young people and their families. I spent these years supporting clients within the social care field in the following settings; children's social care, NHS mental health, private mental health, youth offending, custodial care and drug and alcohol services.

 

Over the past 5 years, my work has specifically focused on trauma informed care within forensic social care and mental health services. I have learned from my time working in the public sector, that trauma informed care and access to culturally competent therapeutic support is highly impactful for change work. My experiences in this field further encouraged me to train as a counsellor and create my own space to provide culturally competent therapeutic support that was trauma sensitive. 

I opened my private practice in 2018, and have collaborated with clients from various backgrounds with varying goals for therapy, in particular, I have extensive experience working with professional millennials from black and mixed backgrounds. I provide workshops, training, therapy consultancy and group therapy in addition to one to one therapeutic work. Mental health conferences, staff training days, retreat workshops and school assemblies are some of the events I have provided therapeutic space and learning for.
