Initial brief phone call
You shouldn't have to spend a lot of money finding a therapist. I offer a brief 15 minute phone call so you can ask questions and get a feel for if we would work well together, with no obligation to proceed.
I offer counselling online via video conferencing, so you can attend appointments in the comfort of your own home. Appointments are weekly or fortnightly. Please note I am not currently taking on new clients. See the FAQ page for details.
The most important thing is choosing a counsellor and environment you feel comfortable with. Off Beat Therapy is open to anyone over the age of 18, regardless of what brings you to counselling, but I particularly focus on working with the following demographics:
I offer a lived experience perspective when working with neurodivergent, trans/non-binary and queer clients. Although I may not have shared with every client, I bring a strong understanding of the experience of 'otherness' and discrimination.
The work I do is also intersectional. You shouldn't need to go to one service for your sexuality to be understood and another service for your race to be understood - a good service should accommodate all aspects of you.
I attend regular additional training, particularly in areas where I don't have personal experience.
