About Me

Listen I know this picture doesn't scream "professional", but that's also somewhat the point. I'm a little unusual as a therapist in that I quite obviously lead a life outside the psychological arena. I'm a singer-songwriter, podcaster, & seemingly open book, & I suppose here is where I bridge the gap between clinical intervention and coaching. You won't find me on social media posting a bikini shot of me drinking mojitos from a coconut & telling you I have the secrets to success, but you will find me on social media, being myself.

I'm an English native, but currently live in Australia and work in private practice, as well as online, running my self help & therapy company (The Self Helped / @theselfhelped) & continue to work as an artist alongside my 9 to 5. I get that it's unconventional & I hear it all the time, the duality of these two spaces (Artist/Therapist) is almost nearly entirely unheard of (especially as I don't use one to support the other). But my job is to help you feel better, live your best life, & be your fullest self. So, at the very least, I should be an example of what that looks like.

I love that I get to connect with people genuinely, that there's a space where people can exist - just as they are - without having to put on a "brave face", pretend, or bend to social norms that most of us don't agree with or like anyway. Helping people to live a life they love is the most rewarding job and every time I see a success I beam with pride and joy. Life is short, it's dynamic, it's sometimes tricky, but it's always a journey and I like to help people carve a path they want to journey on.
I have trained in a prestigious MHSW programme in England to gain professional qualification, and I am trained in Systemic Intervention, Solution Focussed Brief Therapy, DBT skills, CBT skills, Family Group Conferencing, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Based Intervention, EMDR and Cognitive Processing Therapy. I continue to train above and beyond what is demanded of my professional registration, which means I am always on the cusp of the "cutting edge". Therapy is an evolving animal and your treatment should be the best you can possibly access. If you want a down to earth, authentic, honest therapist who can make therapy feel therapeutic - you've found her.

At this point I would just like to add, that Online Therapy is a self directed, CBT platform. That means I work with you in a supportive capacity. When it's used in this way I can say honestly that I've seen it work. But it does mean you're doing the heavy lifting. If you're looking for intervention that is more therapist-led and directed than supported, it might be worth considering more traditional online or face to face appointments. I say this because I want you to have an informed understanding of what you're doing here, and if you're ready to do the work, this is a great place to start.

*Please note I cannot conduct trauma therapy such as EMDR or CPT through this online platform. You can contact me directly to enquire about this if it's something you think you feel will be helpful.

"I did my homework! Plus it’s a BRILLIANT design that helps you express yourself and develop self-awareness rapidly! With multimidia to organize your thoughts and priorities your goals either with worksheets, journal, planner, video, audio, text messaging or email! There's nothing else like it!

You matter! Hang on. Seek relief. And you do not have to do this alone. This is the only online counseling that matters.

"It's hard finding the right therapist, so I'm really glad there is the option to choose and switch if you don't vibe with your current one. That being said, I have been getting a lot out of this experience and my therapist is usually spot on, as well as friendly, compassionate, and approachable. The price tag is worth the service, and it's the best you will find considering the prices of traditional therapy. Wish I had known about this site a long time ago."

"My therapist is amazing individual. She is empathetic and direct without mincing any words when required. Couldn't have any better. This is my first experience therapy and she has simply done an amazing job so far."

"I like that I can do this in my own time and the worksheets help me consider things I hadn't before. I did have to switch therapists but found a great fit the second try. I didn't appreciate the first piece of advice I got being "it'll be good when we talk over video" when I've only signed up for the basic package. Now that I have a good fit, I've gotten a lot out of the service."

"The worksheets have been helpful so far. Haven’t had a chance to talk with the therapist yet but looking forward to it."

"The course has helped me be more aware of the family dynamics I live within, my contribution to those dynamics, and my power, greater than I thought, to change them and improve my mental health within them. I'm learning how, concretely, to set boundaries and reduce anxiety and feelings of helplessness/hopelessness. It's as if I'm getting some psychological vitamins and minerals I've long needed."
