About me

If you are LGBTQIA+ it can be hard to find a therapist you trust to work with you in an accepting and non-pathologising way. I’m an experienced counsellor committed to working affirmatively with gender, sexuality and relationship diversity. I provide counselling that will support you in your LGBTQIA+ identity whether you are looking for a service relating to this, secondary struggles or other issues.

My initial training was in Person Centered counselling (University of Strathclyde 2012) and I have studied narrative therapy, ecotherapy and somatic/body based approaches. I am also a qualified EMDR practitioner. I draw on all of these approaches and my sessions are tailored to your needs, interests and strengths.

As well as my private practice I am a volunteer counsellor at LGBT Health and Wellbeing and I have previously worked for a national charity offering counselling to asylum seekers and refugees who had experienced profound trauma and loss. I have extensive experience of working trans-culturally and I am happy working with language support.

Prior to my counselling training I worked in a variety of different contexts: as a support worker with women in the criminal legal system, for a food co-op and for a community organisation working with the Travelling community. I also have a background in activism and organising for migrant rights and solidarity through my work with the Unity Centre in Glasgow.

I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space and I am committed to respecting diversity in all its forms and working to support and empower you.
