About Me

My qualifications

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

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

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, and now work with them as a group supervisor for volunteer counsellors in Edinburgh. I am a trustee on the board of directors for Kaleidoscope Counselling

 

I am also currently training to be a volunteer pregnancy and birth companion/doula with Amma.

My background includes counselling within a university research clinic, a charity for people affected by cancer, and 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.

However, the stuff I often work with includes:

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • shame

  • relationships - all types 

  • co-dependency

  • sex & sexuality

  • gender

  • isolation & unbelonging

  • loss & grieving - all forms of heartbreak

  • life transitions 
  • self-worth/confidence/esteem

  • trauma

  • transcultural experiences 

  • migration

  • minority struggles

  • family / fertility / pregnancy / abortion / miscarriage / birth / parenting (particularly in queer contexts)

  • neurodivergence, ASD/autism, AD(H)D, high sensitivity 

  • spirituality

Professional Membership

 

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), committed to 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.
