About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I understand people seek counselling for many different reasons and that taking the first steps can feel daunting, that includes finding the right counsellor for you.

Perhaps I can tell you a little about my approach and my experience to help you decide whether you feel we could work together. I passionately believe in the healing potential of being truly listened to and heard and that’s what I strive to offer; a confidential space in which you feel safe to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours or whatever is troubling you. For me it’s about finding out what’s going on for you. Working together to support you in exploring and drawing upon your own resources, to gain greater awareness and understanding of yourself, to make sense of past or current events, relationships or life situation; to make the changes you want to make. To help you in your pursuit of emotional and mental well-being. As your counsellor my role is to support you through this journey rather than to give you advice or tell you what is best for you.

Qualifications and experience:
As well as providing a counselling service in private practice I have counselled in NHS primary care within a health centre and in a university counselling unit and so have experience of a wide range of issues,  including, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties, trauma, abuse, personal development. I qualified with a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling, University of Strathclyde in 2016 and gained BACP Accreditation in 2019
