About me

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor with thirteen and a half years' experience in counselling and mental health. I have worked in a variety of different settings, including an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and the NHS, as well as a number of different voluntary organisations.

While counselling can help with most issues and while I have worked with many of them, I am most experienced in working with mental health issues, from stress, including work-related stress, to anxiety and depression to bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. I also have a lot of experience working with people who self-harm or who are suicidal, as well as those who have experienced domestic abuse and trauma.

The other area in which I am most experienced is relationships, including relationships with family, friends, significant others and self. I am particularly interested in personal development and how we can work through difficult issues from childhood, including issues with abandonment and attachment, using self-awareness and self-compassion.

I strive to create a safe space in which we can work together on exploring what has brought you to counselling at this time.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills from The University of Strathclyde gained in 2006 and a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling from The University of Strathclyde gained in 2008.

I also have a BA (Hons) in Painting gained in 1997, as well as extensive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) covering a wide variety of topics in the field of counselling and mental health.

I have seven years' experience of and extensive training in Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) and I provide psychological first aid to groups and individuals in the aftermath of, amongst other incidents, acts of terror, armed robberies, deaths in service, including from suicide, and industrial accidents.

Lastly, I am an experienced trainer and I deliver training in mental health awareness and relationship first aid.
