About me

A warm welcome from me to you. I am a qualified counsellor based in Dundee, where I offer individual therapy both face to face & online along with mediation and couples counselling.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and describe myself as a Pluralistic Counsellor, this means that I work collaboratively with my clients. I believe that everyone is unique and no situation is the same therefore I offer a variety of different approaches to help you feel less tangled and stuck.  Pluralism teaches there is not just one way to help someone, therefore I use a range of approaches including person-centred, transactional analysis and cognitive behavioural therapy.  

I am aware that attending counselling can be daunting therefore I aspire to create a space filled with compassion and respect, one that will help you to develop different coping strategies, build resilience and meet goals. Most importantly, I will listen without judgement.

I have experience working with addiction, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, eating disorders, bereavement, suicidal ideation and many more issues that can contribute to making life feel more difficult. 

I can offer you a safe space to talk and process your experiences and feelings. I will support you to live your life authentically and be with you as you find your own answers, process your experiences and grow as a person. I am a multicultural therapist, who is faith sensitive and driven by equality.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am fully qualified with a Msc in Counselling from Abertay University.

I have spent two years working in addiction service.

I am an experienced advocate for the BAME community including gender-based violence.

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.
