About me

I provide a safe, therapeutic space for unheard voices to be listened to and understood, with heart. I am based in Dundee and alongside my established Counselling practice, I also offer Movement for Wellbeing with Conscious Movement sessions or Walk and Talks.


I experience Counselling and my movement practices as Co-creation, two people developing a dynamic and responsive relationship. My invitation is for you to explore and unpack what is around for you with me as your companion and witness.


Counselling offers you a safe space to be free to express yourself without judgement, to discover insight which can be challenging, to meet your resistance and to have a solid connection with someone.


For me, Counselling is a choice about, and commitment to, your developing self-care. It is equally about celebrating and discovering what feels good as exploring and healing what hurts. It invites possibilities and authentic living.

My aim in counselling is to bear witness to you to enable you to be and feel heard, to be acknowledged and to experience a sense of connection.  Together we will co-create a relationship that will help you to have a stronger sense of who you are, what you want and need, and understand how you are in relationships.

My commitment to you is to:

  • listen to you with an open mind & an open heart
  • accept you and never judge you
  • maintain your confidentiality
  • challenge you
  • be willing to learn from you and to grow
  • continue my ongoing development
  • work alongside you with integrity and professionalism
  • support you as you explore your feelings & experiences

How counselling helps

Anyone can benefit from counselling. We all need support at different times in our lives and counselling can help you to feel less anxiety, worry and shame alongside an increased flexibility and personal freedom as you feel more connected to yourself and the people in your life.

Person-Centred Counselling can help you to:

  • Explore your self-concept and become more connected to your body, feelings, thoughts and emotions.
  • Develop your self-awareness
  • Trust and value your own experiences
  • Build your self-worth,
  • Enable you to develop healthy boundaries with yourself and others and
    heal from your trauma, whatever that is.
  • Learn how to help yourself to feel safe when anxious, scared etc
  • Be spontaneous

Training, qualifications & experience

  • I have developed extensive and invaluable experience within the field of counselling and wellbeing. I was fortunate to be trained by leading members of the Person-Centred field and I am passionate about developing my skills and awareness.
  • For me, working alongside clients is the most rewarding gift and it is my responsibility to ensure that my knowledge and skills are continually developing.

During my employment in New York City as an Assistant Psychologist, I received an Outstanding Achievement Award & a grant towards future study as an acknowledgement of my contribution to services within the national organisation.


I  have extensive experience in telephone counselling, specialising in working with clients who are suicidal or have suicidal thoughts.  I am currently studying a Masters in Somatic Movement Education and my aim is to introduce and develop Somatic Counselling and Somatic Movement Workshops to Dundee.  I am also co-founder of SOS (Shake it Off Stockport) which is a monthly, sober community dance event.

Fees

Counselling Sessions   - The initial session is 90 minutes in length. It is a 'Getting to know each other' Session which enables you to have a full hour to talk about what you need to and then we have 30 minutes to explore our expectations, how we can work together etc. This is £45. Subsequent sessions are 60 minutes in length.

Please see my website for a full list of service fees.


We can schedule a free chat to start our conversation (15-20 mins) about what you need and how we can work together.


* Fees payable are to reserve the therapeutic hour, not for attendance. Once a session has been booked, the agreed fee must be paid unless 48 hours notice given.

Further information

Counselling is a positive and empowering process. If you are willing to commit to yourself and the therapeutic relationship, you can accomplish a greater sense of wellbeing and facilitate your own growth and development.


Appointments available during day and evening and have limited weekend availability.

I work within the BACP ethical framework & follow stated guidelines for good practice. I receive supervision on a monthly basis to ensure that I am working in the best way I can for each client. I also attend regular trainings and CPD to update and enhance my skills.
