About Me

About Me

I generally introduce myself as a Counsellor or Psychotherapist – because that’s the ‘business-card’ approach. However, that’s not quite the whole story. I sometimes say I am a Cross-Cultural Counsellor: Working with Culture, Ethnicity and diversity.

I was born in Uganda. I came to the UK in my Mid Twenties and I have lived here ever since. Although my childhood was quite challenging, it shaped how I relate to the world and left me with a lifetime fascination with how our diverse cultures and backgrounds work.

I founded Acorn therapy in 2017. Once I completed my first counselling degree, I decided to offer a service that gives clients a fresh and unique therapy experience that doesn’t conform to the therapist stereotype. I would love to change the status quo surrounding counselling and psychotherapy and open it up to those who would previously have never considered it.

Besides therapy and counselling, playing music (Hand drumming, singing and percussion) is my second vocational passion – and I strongly believe in the healing properties of music.

I also love adventure and travel.

Through our work together, you may be able to develop the skills needed for emotional health, resilience and well being.
