About me

It can be daunting to seek counselling and seems so much to consider and choose from. I am a person-centred counsellor, who respects that what is good for one person isn't for another. I believe in tailoring counselling sessions around what the client wants. Exploring and finding ways of dealing and coping with difficulties in your life. The first step is finding a counsellor you feel a connection with that understands what is going on in life for you.

From dealing with various mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, domestic abuse and relationship issues to coping with loss, I can offer a safe space to talk and find a way forward.

In addition, I also offer holistic therapies such as Indian head massage and reiki which can be incorporated into sessions too.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my HND in counselling with a PDA in Addiction at Glasgow Clyde College.  I currently work with organisations that deal with crisis and trauma primarily.  With a deep understanding of mental health issues and the impact of childhood experiences on us as adults.  I continue to educate and learn on a variety of subjects as part of my continuing professional development, which is a requirement of my membership of the BACP.

I am also about to embark on training to work with young people and children, wishing to make a difference to their mental health and life experiences.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
