In a welcoming, safe, compassionate,nurturing environment I will be your companion through this tough process of putting the pieces of your life and your self back together. One piece at a time we can work together towards healing, self love and wholeness.
Throughout my years of practice I have worked with people from many different backgrounds and a wide age range. I have a broad experience in working with loss and bereavement, anxiety, depression,trauma, work related stress, physical/emotional/sexual abuse, domestic violence and self esteem issues.
My journey with bereavement counselling started in 2016 when as a student in the University of Edinburgh I completed a training course on grief and bereavement. This gave me the opportunity to enrol and work with Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland for the subsequent years to come and to make loss and grief my niche.
The generic,public idea about grief is that it is only connected to the death of a loved one. Grief however lies behind every loss that we experience in life. Grief is closely connected to happy or painful life transitions like a wedding or the birth of a child. It is connected to anxiety, trauma, the loss of self and identity, the loss of health or any kind of addiction.
As a therapist I believe that the therapeutic process is a journey of going back to one’s self. Going back to that human who is worthy, lovable, full of light and an uncompromised part of the universe. I believe that no matter what life can throw at us at any age ,no matter the trauma, hardship, loss of self and pain we all more or less go through, we have the internal tendency and capacity for healing, growth and wholeness.
I offer an initial session in the reduced price of £20. This will give us the opportunity to meet and see if we can work together. Please feel free to get in touch.

Also having worked for NHS Scotland for years I have a wide experience of working with people with mental health problems including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.

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.
