About me

Are you trying to figure things out on your own? Do you feel as if you can't talk to people around you? Does it feel as if certain days, weeks, months, years, are difficult or unbearable? Does it feel as if there's a conflict going on inside? As if it's difficult to make sense of what you think/feel? Maybe you want to make decisions, want to take action, want to do something that makes you feel better? Talking with someone who has no bias, who is trained to listen to what you need, can help you to feel better, make decisions, and move forward in life.
I offer a form of talking therapy. I listen, empathise, reflect, share my curiosities, question, relate to you. My aim is to facilitate your ability to heal and live a more fulfilling life.
We can all experience difficult times in our lives. We all want to feel as if we know who we are, how we feel, and what we want. If you answered any of the questions above 'yes', then feel free to get in contact and we can meet to discuss if therapy will be helpful for you.

I currently offer one-to-one therapy to individuals aged 16 and over.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the University of Edinburgh and completed both the Postgraduate Certificate, and Diploma, in Counselling.

I am a volunteer therapist with the Wellspring centre for counselling and psychotherapy. Here, I work one-to-one with adults.

I also spent a year working with young people in a secondary school environment.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
