About me

Foluke Taylor

Psychotherapist, Writer, Teacher, Parent

I work from a black feminist relational analytic ground, to support experiments in being and living otherwise

I am interested in intersecting identities as dynamic processes in constant navigation. I see the therapeutic relationship as a site of sacred exchange

Practicing and sharing creative writing is one of my modes and methods of therapeutic enquiry (aka a practice of care and a way to live)

Critical thinking across transdisciplinary space gives me life. I am interested in unsettling borders, and in therapy, art, activism and commune/ity as blended s/places

I draw on the accumulated knowledges of lived experience, and on social, cultural and ancestral inheritance. This includes 10 particularly formative years spent living and working in The Gambia. I also hold an MSc in Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes (CWTP – Metanoia Institute), BACP accredition, and HCPC registration

I currently live in London, but continue to dream, connect and collaborate transnationally.
