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


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.
