About me

Are you looking for help to optimise your life?

Do you want help with some of your problems in a bespoke, personalised way?

Would you be more comfortable with being supported by an open member of the LGBTQ+ community?

Are you committed to making changes now?

If you answered yes, then you're in the right place.

I work with LGBTQ+ people (as well as the curious and unsure) so they can build a life that truly makes them feel happy and fulfilled. This may involve dealing with problems like depression, anxiety and stress or it may involve accepting your sexuality and/or gender identity.

You don't have to know what you want in order to benefit from working with me as I can help you uncover insights into what is important to you and what will make your life more satisfying and more rewarding for you. 

I specialise working with the LGBTQ+ community because lesbian, gay, bisexual, m-spec, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual people are more likely to experience emotional, social, psychological and financial difficulties than the straight, cisgender people in our society. I have seen mainstream mental health services fail and harm LGBTQ+ people through a combination of ignorance, prejudice and generally just being ill-equipped to help. By providing a mental health coaching service for the LGBTQ+ community as an open member of the community myself, I can guarantee you will receive an accepting and supportive service.

My clients successfully overcome obstacles, resolve issues, learn new skills and make discoveries about themselves without having to worry about being accepted, long waiting lists and feeling like they're just stumbling around in the dark.

I am a member of the British Psychological Society and I adhere to their Code of Ethics & Conduct. I also pursue continuing professional development opportunities so you don't need to worry about my professionalism or skills.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Life Coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Life Coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
