I have been trained in a therapeutic model called the Person-Centred Approach, which is based on the belief that we all have the potential to heal and grow, and find our own way to move forward and progress in our life.
My role is to create a supportive and trusting environment where you feel comfortable enough to explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment or criticism, and where you can begin to make sense of whatever it is you are struggling with.
I have experience of working with clients with a wide range of presenting issues, including:
I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychological Wellbeing, Counselling & Psychotherapy from the University of Aberdeen, and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). As such, I abide by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
As a Registered Member of BACP, I have an ethical and professional responsibility to engage with a wide range of ongoing continuous professional development and training to ensure that I continue to offer the best support I can to all of my clients.
I grew up on an island on the west coast of Scotland, and feel a very strong connection to the sea. I love nothing more than going for long walks on the beach with my dog, Gracie, especially in stormy weather!
