About me

Hello I'm Gulli, I wish you a warm welcome. Perhaps you are grappling with a situation or behaviour that feels out of your control, or struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction or past trauma; perhaps you have lost your spark for life, and feel a deep inner home-sickness for more meaning and a sense of purpose.

Whatever your unique story, seeking help takes immense courage and at least a flicker of hope that you have the inner resources to make it through. I believe that you do.

Counselling can be a transformative journey, but it can be hard to find space for ourselves. I invite you to take this time for you. Our work together will be tailored to you and the relationship we build. I will act as a guide - drawing on traditional talking therapies whilst weaving in creativity, imagery and somatic experiencing when words are not enough.

I commit to offering a compassionate, safe, and confidential place to bring whatever you need support in working through. I welcome you to make contact and we can arrange a free call or Zoom to discuss what working together looks like.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am originally from Norway but grew up on a family farm in the North East of Scotland. I have a creative background, which I call on in the way I work with clients when it feels supportive, through use of guided imagery, visualisation, drawing, creative writing and dialogue. 

I have always been attuned to suffering, as well as to the beauty and meaning to be found in life. I've witnessed time and again our incredible capacity for growth and healing through connection to each other or to a sense of purpose.

I'm interested in how our personal growth can also bring about positive changes in society.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).
