Life can often be in a constant state of change and uncertainty. Life can also be a source of connection and growth. Sometimes that means leaning on others to help you navigate difficult times. The journey often begins with simply noticing. Since you are here, now, chances are you already started the journey.
Hailing from Canada, being a counsellor is a culmination of my own personal and professional journey. My experiences thus far have left me humbled and filled with gratitude to be part of the counselling process for my clients in Scotland and all around the United Kingdom. I am honoured to build trust so you can move forward.
Training, qualifications & experience
Alongside my Master's degree in Counselling Psychology, I am trained in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) interventions, narrative based approaches and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) skills. These modalities allow a lot of flexibility for clients hoping for a more direct hands-on approach to anxiety, stress, depression, addiction, anger management and life transitions.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
