Passion, Nature, Emotions, Connection
I’m a Nature-based Psychotherapist and Anthropologist. I explore relationships with people and with nature.
As a black mixed race practitioner I have a particularly interest in supporting people of colour in finding their place in UK natural settings.
I’m a specialist in nature-based psychotherapy and only offer sessions using natural environments as the therapeutic setting. My sessions take place in woods and parks throughout London. I’ve spent many years theorising Nature Allied Psychotherapy as an orientation of practice and am currently writing Nature Allied Psychotherapy; Exploring relationship with Self, Others and Nature which will be published by Routledge in 2020.
I founded Wild in the City in 2013 as a therapeutic organisation supporting well-being through relationship with nature in London’s wild spaces. WitC provides experiences in woodland living skills, natural history and ecotherapy, using the skills of our ancestors to nurture a deeper connection with the natural world.
I provide training to psychotherapists and outdoor professionals interested in collaborating with nature in their work supporting emotional health through the Nature Therapy School.
I have more than fifteen years research experience in the fields of human rights and psychological health.
I have degrees in Comparative Religion & Social Anthropology (BA), Human Rights (MA) and Psychotherapy (MA).
My training is integrative which means that I’ve trained in different styles of therapy, so that I can adapt to you rather than expecting you to fit into anyone model, these approaches include;
- Nature Allied Psychotherapy
- Person Centred Psychotherapy
- Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
- Humanistic Psychotherapy
- Body Psychotherapy
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Solution Focused Brief Therapy
- Relaxation and Meditative techniques
I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their Code of Ethics. I receive regular clinical supervision.
The first steps in deciding who and if you want to see someone can be daunting, its important that you feel a therapist is going to be a good fit for you so please do get in touch if you’d like to hear more about any aspect of what our sessions will be like.
