Thank you for landing here.


My psychological practice is rooted in liberation and community psychology, drawing on therapeutics, poetry and activism as interconnected practices to support marginalised and racialised people. 


I am currently building anti-racism as a core competence for training clinical psychologists, teaching, and working with marginalised groups (e.g. I work as the lead facilitator for young people's Thinking Spaces on Broadwater Farm Estate, I facilitate 1:1 spaces for staff of a Global Majority* at The Barbican, and I facilitate monthly reflective and healing group spaces for Beyond Equality’s facilitators of a Global Majority and those who identify as LGBTQI+, an organization that focuses on working with young boys and men).


I offer 1:1 and group therapeutic work, host therapeutic conversations, facilitation and consultation. 


I am interested in the art of imperfection, non-linear growth, interdependence, transformative justice, imagining, and becoming. I ask: How can we create spaces for softness and compassion? How can we show love through our actions? How can we embrace each other’s madness?


I recognise life as cycles of repetition and practice. What we practice, grows. Some of my practices include embodiment, compassion, prayer, joy, rest, radical acceptance, writing, honesty.


I see the therapeutic place as sacred, generous and generative. Beyond the therapy room, I am interested in working towards transforming the structures and conditions that induce collective distress and suffering. Suffering and madness is an understandable response to a traumatising world, especially for those racialised and marginalised.  


I have a Doctorate of Clinical Psychology from Salomons Institute of Clinical Psychology, a MSc in Forensic Clinical Psychology from IoPPN, and I continue to seek learning outside of what is scholared and deemed legitimate by academic institutions. I seek ways of knowing through lived experience, drawing on cultural, social and ancestral wisdom. I have 10 years’ experience working in clinical and community settings, including CAMHS, LAC services, school settings and homeless hostels.

*I use Global Majority instead of PoC, as the latter risks centring whiteness by default. This too is imperfect; language is so often a net with gaping holes.
