About me

I am a qualified counsellor trained in Person Centred and Psychodynamic theories of counselling. I place important value in the unique experience of the counsellor-client relationship. Counselling sessions last 50 minutes. Each session is focused on providing an environment that values warmth, empathy and non-judgement.

Using my background I offer thoughts and wanderings whilst maintaining that the client is the expert. It is my role to facilitate the client through their personal journey whatever that looks like. Through the counsellor-client relationship, I hope to support my clients to reach new depths and levels of understanding about their circumstance.

Training, qualifications & experience

In 2016, I graduated with a Masters of Counselling at Edinburgh University. My experience with counselling covers a diverse range of subjects such as identity, sexuality, depression, anxiety, relationships and many more.

I currently counsel at Edinburgh Women's Aid and counsel privately with RK Counselling. My time at Women's Aid has provided me specialised experience in working with issues regarding relationship difficulties, trauma and domestic abuse. I am also a senior support practitioner working closely with children with autism and learning difficulties

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I abide by the codes of practice and ethical frameworks outlined by the organisation.
