About Me

My qualifications

I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

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/

My experience and interests

My background is in caring roles and in organisations trying to improve human welfare. For the past four years I have been a mental health worker for LGBT Health and Wellbeing which includes coordinating a counselling service; I am passionate about working affirmatively with gender, sexual and relational diversities

 

Past counselling experience includes long-term work within a university research clinic as well as time-limited work within a charity for people affected by cancer.

I actively work - from and towards - an intersectional, anti-oppressive practice that recognises the greater systems 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, some of the things that I have worked with often include:

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • stress

  • relationship difficulties - partners, family, friends, co-workers...

  • sex and sexuality

  • gender

  • isolation, alienation and unbelonging

  • loss and grieving 

  • illness and life-limiting conditions

  • abuse

  • difficult choices

  • difficult emotions

  • change

  • fears

  • stuckness

  • low self-worth and self-confidence 

  • neurodiversity

  • minority struggles

I am passionate about the power of counselling in empowering us to live truly fulfilling lives. Find out more about the therapy here.
