About me

As a qualified therapist with a Doctorate in Counselling and Psychotherapy, I confidently support adults, couples, and young people presenting a range of issues. I draw from many schools of thought to tailor my approach to what you're needing. I offer a warm, authentic, and compassionate therapeutic relationship, meeting you wherever you are, person to person. With the ultimate goal of facilitating a return to balance and alignment, I partner with you to pattern new, healthier ways of moving through the world and being in relationship with self and others.

I have worked in a general way and I have specialised in trauma and addiction. Some of my other specialties are working with issues around anxiety, depression, self-esteem/self-confidence, relationship issues, suicidal thoughts, anger management, loss/bereavement, abuse (emotional, physical, sexual) and work and academic related stress. I work with addressing the symptoms of the issue as well as developing insight into what underlies the presenting problems. I offer therapy in person and online. I also offer ad hoc sessions through my 'Place to Talk' service. Please visit my website for more information about the services I provide.

During our time together, you can develop more self-understanding and self-acceptance. You can gain clarity about what you want in life, rather than what you think you’re supposed to want. You can grow a deeper, more genuine connection to yourself and others. You can form healthier thought patterns and identify habits and practices that support you in your growth. You can gradually let go of guilt and shame. You can learn to trust your inner wisdom and own your truth. You can find more presence and meaning in life, feel more joy, and experience more fulfillment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I earned my undergraduate degree in Liberal Studies in 2014. My studies emphasised the social sciences, such as developmental psychology, child development, religious studies, philosophy, sociology and anthropology, reflecting my keen interest in the human experience.

In 2016, I completed my COSCA Accredited PG Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Interpersonal Dialogue). I continued my studies, earning a Doctorate in Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2019. I underwent training to specialise in relationship and couples counselling with Relationship Scotland. With this extensive training, I confidently support clients in navigating life transitions with authenticity, grace and creativity.

I also regularly attend continued professional development (CPD) conferences, seminars, and workshops as an up-to-date and lifelong learner in my profession. I offer you sessions infused with the latest research on effective therapy approaches.
