About me

Welcome into a space of warmth, understanding, and genuine support on your journey towards personal growth and healing. As a seasoned counsellor with a passion for continuous learning and improvement, I bring a wealth of experience and a commitment to tailoring my approach to your unique needs.

Currently pursuing an Honour's Degree in Psychology to deepen my understanding of human behavior and enhance my therapeutic techniques, I am dedicated to staying at the forefront of evidence-based practices. Grounded in the Person-Centred approach while seamlessly integrating other modalities, I offer a holistic framework that fosters empowerment and self-discovery.

Navigating life's challenges can feel overwhelming, but you don't have to face them alone. Whether you're grappling with a recent trauma, ongoing struggles, or simply seeking clarity and support, my goal is to provide you with a safe haven—a space free from judgment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences openly.

Together, we will embark on a collaborative journey towards healing and growth, uncovering insights and discovering practical solutions along the way. Your well-being is my priority, and I am here to listen, understand, and support you every step of the way.

If you're ready to take the first step towards positive change, I invite you to reach out to me via email, text, or phone call. Let's embark on this transformative journey together, and discover the strength and resilience within you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment with a compassionate guide by your side. As a registered counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and a qualified Humanistic counsellor, I offer a personalized approach that honours your individuality and respects your autonomy.

Grounded in the core values of the Person-Centred Approach, my practice provides a nurturing space where you can explore the depths of your emotions and experiences without fear of judgment. I believe that within you lies the wisdom and resilience to navigate life's challenges, and I am here to support you on your path towards self-awareness and growth.

With specialized training in Addiction Counselling and extensive experience in diverse settings, including those with high prevalence of addiction issues, I bring a wealth of expertise to address a wide range of concerns. From anxiety and depression to trauma and relationship issues, I have supported individuals facing various life challenges with empathy and understanding.

My dedication to serving the community extends beyond my counselling practice. Having spent significant time at Renfrewshire Carers Centre, providing support to individuals caring for their loved ones, I understand the unique struggles faced by caregivers and the importance of self-care in such roles. Additionally, my role as a support worker at The Priory has equipped me with firsthand knowledge of the daily challenges and triumphs in providing care and support to others.

Whether you're grappling with addiction, navigating complex relationships, or simply seeking guidance on your life journey, I am here to accompany you every step of the way. Take the first step towards healing and transformation by reaching out to me today. Together, we can unlock the inner strength and resilience needed to thrive.

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.
