about me

                                      

I know it can be very isolating to feel shame and fear of our emotions. It can be terrifying to open up about how we really feel, sometimes we don't even know how we feel. I will hold you in a safe space without judgement, giving you time & patience to explore your emotions and ways in which you can communicate your needs to those around you.

 I will help you learn to prioritise self care and self compassion, to quieten the shame, guilt and paralysis that the inner critic brings. To have better relationships with yourself and those around you, to understand why you may be stuck in a pattern of overwhelm and burnout. We'll review the past in detail, alongside practical ways to make the here and now easier.

I know personally and professionally how a late diagnosis of adhd or autism can be a huge adjustment. Looking back, your life experiences may now make sense, but you need space to recalibrate and identify what this means moving forward, and how to embrace this new era unapologetically. You may need firmer boundaries, but don’t know how. We’ve got this.
