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.

I agree. We also need, I think, to work out what this looks like in practice and how exactly we might stop/start doing it.
