Passion, Nature, Emotions, Connection
I work to improve understanding of emotional health and the impact of emotions in our everyday personal and professional lives, offering psychotherapy, research consultancy and training.
I’m a Nature-based Psychotherapist and Anthropologist. I explore relationships with people and with nature.
As a mixed race practitioner I have a particularly interest in supporting people of colour in finding their place in UK natural settings.
I am passionate about using natural environments such as woods and parkland as therapeutic spaces, to help children, young people and adults to connect with themselves and the world around them. I founded Wild in the City in 2013 as a therapeutic organisation supporting the wellbeing through connection to nature. WitC provides experiences in bushcraft, traditional skills and ecotherapy, using the skills of our ancestors to nurture a deeper connection with the natural world.
I established the Nature Therapy School in 2015 to provide high quality training to psychotherapists and outdoor professionals interested in collaborating with nature in their work supporting emotional health. I have run training in the therapeutic use of nature since 2014.
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). In my current research I share narratives, scientific findings and theoretical understandings about connection to nature and her value to our lives.
I’m a specialist in nature-based psychotherapy and only offer sessions using natural environments as the therapy room. My sessions take place in woods and parks throughout London.
My practice 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-based 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.
