"As a counselling art therapist, I promote self-empowerment and build autonomy with my clients. Creating art is like a bridge to my subconscious, so I look for creative ways to help others express and understand better what they are going through by working with the creative forces within them. Central to my practice, I aim to be known as an authentic counsellor, valuing cultural and identity diversities, providing unconditional support, whilst holding a safe space for my clients as they head towards living a life with meaning and purpose."

"I am a huge animal lover, and living a low-waste sustainable lifestyle. In my downtime, I would probably be drinking tea lattes while adding details into my art pieces. I am always reading and learning to be as competent as I can for my clients. "
