About me

I offer counselling to women who are survivors of sexual abuse, rape and domestic abuse. There are a number of physical, mental and social scars that are left from abuse that can ripple out into our lives, causing pain, illness and distress. If this is an issue that is affecting your life and feel that you are ready for counselling, check my profile out in more detail.

I qualified as a Person- Centred counsellor from the University of Aberdeen. I have since went on to specialise in women's mental health and well-being.

My work with survivors of sexual abuse has led my research into women's mental health. I have found that in regards to certain issues like, coercive control, gender based violence, cultural sexism, reproductive health and immigration, a gender-sensitive counseling approach offers a more holistic approach to women's healing. I feel its important to mention that my label of women encompasses anybody that identifies as female.

My approach is very much led by you as you are the expert in your life, healing and growth. My role is to facilitate your process by providing an approach of empathy, compassion and acceptance, for you to become empowered women!
