I grew up in a rural town in Scotland which taught me the power of community but also, the challenge to show up as our authentic selves.
With a background in education, I am passionate about learning and helping others discover and nurture their true selves, through developing skills of self-awareness to build loving, purposeful relationships with themselves and others.
I studied at Greenwich University and I hold a Master of Science in Therapeutic Counselling (MSc) which is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I also studied at Strathclyde University achieving BEd (Hons) in Primary Education. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I am an integrative therapist, meaning that our work together will use a range of tools and approaches to best work for you. I have experience in engaging and supporting a diverse range of people, working across genders, cultures, socioeconomic, faith and non-faith backgrounds.
I have previously worked for a national mental health charity in east London specialising in NHS referrals and low-cost therapy. I have also volunteered for a mental health charity.
My approach is integrative meaning that I work flexibly, drawing on a range of tools and approaches to best suit you as an individual, with a strong emphasis on our relationship. I’m influenced by various theories, philosophies and modalities including: relational, psychodynamic, transpersonal, humanistic, behavioural.
I am here to work with you along a journey to explore your experiences, unconscious thoughts, feelings and behaviours by providing you with a safe space, free from judgement and discrimination. This will enable you to have a greater insight into who you are, with the confidence and the clarity to tackle issues facing you so that you are able to thrive.
Clients have described me as genuine and caring, easy to talk to and a clear communicator.
My approach is warm and authentic, putting what’s best for you at the heart of our work together to create the positive impact you want to see. I am empathic and will build a connection with you as an individual so that you feel seen, heard and empowered. I will meet you where you are at, understanding you as a unique individual with your own life experiences and perspectives. I will offer you both high challenge and high support so that you will feel encouraged, strengthened and nurtured, even when we are exploring difficult – perhaps painful – issues together.
I work on a one to one basis with people aged 18 and over.
