About Me

My qualifications

  • Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow (2016)

  • Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling Supervision, Physis Scotland, Edinburgh (2022)

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This certifies that my training is to a professional standard and that I work within the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions: www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework.  You can check my membership on the professional register here: www.bacpregister.org.uk

 

I very much hope that you wouldn’t have cause to complain about my practice such that we couldn’t find a resolution together. If you do however, you can contact the BACP here: www.bacp.co.uk/prof_conduct/

I am in ongoing and regular clinical supervision for my work.

My experience and interests

I identify as queer and I am passionate about working affirmatively with gender, sexual and relational diversitiesFor five years I managed a counselling service for LGBT Health and Wellbeing in Glasgow. I am currently on the board for Kaleidoscope Counselling.

Past experience includes long-term work within a university research clinic, time-limited work within a charity for people affected by cancer, and online, time-limited work with workers of a women's centre for minoritised ethnic women.

I actively work - from and towards - an intersectional, anti-oppressive practice that recognises the greater systems and contexts we come from, and are working within.

I am trained to work with the uniqueness of each individual in whatever they are experiencing and however they experience it.

However, the stuff I often work with includes:

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • relationship difficulties (all types of relationship)

  • sex and sexuality

  • gender

  • isolation, alienation and unbelonging

  • loss and grieving (all forms of loss e.g. death, break-up, divorce, infertility, jobs...)

  • fear and feeling stuck

  • life transitions and change
  • confusion and difficult choices

  • self-worth / self-confidence / self-esteem

  • neurodivergence and high sensitivity 

  • illness and life-limiting conditions

  • refugee & asylum seeking experiences 

  • minority struggles

  • spirituality
