About me and my therapy practice

I am trained and qualified in the person centred theory and practice in counselling and psychotherapy. My practice also informs from other humanistic theories such as existential and narrative therapies. 

I will invest in building a trustful, authentic relationship with you. You should expect to feel welcome and treated with respect, without judgement. 

I will be interested in hearing your own story and any concerns you choose to bring to counselling. 

I will commit to being present and understanding your circumstances and experiences from your own point of view. 

I will help you reflect on your therapeutic journey and explore aspects of therapy you may find helpful or difficult. 

I will tailor my approach and pace to suit your needs. 

We may work creatively using metaphors, stories, dreams and imagery. 

In order to best support your therapeutic needs I may draw skills from other theories and modalities such as brief therapy theories, solution focused brief therapy and focusing, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and psycho-education. 

Practice description

My practise is currently only online. While recognising the limitations this brings, I am open to reasonable adaptations in order to make it as inclusive as possible for you.

I run an inclusive practise for Black, Asian, Indigenous people, people of colour and clients from ethnic, linguistic, religious and other minorities. I also am an LGBTQ+ and gender aware therapist.

I have expertise in disability, development and neuro-diversity. My service is scientifically informed to work with neuro-diverse and disabled clients.

Areas I can help you with:

- Process difficult emotions and experiences.

- Find hope and meaning.

- Symptoms of anxiety and depression. 

- Dealing with 'stuckness' and moving on.

- Personal growth and self-confidence.

- Recovery from trauma.

- Copying skills.

- Relationships.

- Loss and grief.

- Setting of healthy boundaries with self and others.

- Investing in your own self-care, mental and physical health. 

My clinical experience has focused on community based, local and national organisations in Edinburgh and Glasgow. I have specialised on areas such as single parents, unpaid carers, adolescents and young adults, students, domestic abuse and gender based violence, trauma, complex trauma and addictions. In addition, I have coordinated and carried out development & advice work for local counselling services. At present, I manage my own private practice, alongside partnership work with Scottish mental health trauma organisations. I am also a counsellor at the student counselling service at the University of Edinburgh.
