Growing up I loved to write and play musical instruments. For as long as I can remember I've expressed myself through journalling, poetry, lyrics. My love of words took me to Oxford University, where I studied MA English Literature & Language, and in 2015 I released my first album titled Who Are You? It was a milestone for me. I was fortunate enough to be introduced by Tom Robinson on BBC6 Music and be reviewed by media outlets including The Guardian. I don't mind telling you that it was challenging getting up on stage, being seen and singing about my inner-most thoughts. Yet I can't imagine life without having had that experience. Songwriting helped me get comfortable sharing my authentic self and the creative process makes a great container for emotions, a place to meet them with curiosity and acceptance.
I consider creativity to be a healing path and after experiencing this first-hand I was hooked on personal transformation. I studied counselling at Birkbeck University followed by psychotherapy at Regents. I learned how the unconscious mind impacts our behaviour and how unintegrated tension and trauma can live inside our system if it goes unchecked. I practiced holding safe spaces where people could feel their feelings and I learned to trust in the validity of every emotion that surfaces - to view their coming to pass as a natural, necessary part of growth.
