Counsellor, MBACP; PD Integrative Counselling; MA (Hons)
I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the BACP. My diploma in Integrative Counselling was completed at a BACP accredited institution and combined ideas from psychodynamic, psychosynthesis and person centred theories. Prior to completing my counselling training, I worked in education and mental health. Since then I have had the great pleasure to practice in a variety of different counselling settings including working with adults at the PF Counselling Service, Crossreach Counselling Lothians and the bereavement service at St Francis Hospice, and with secondary school students through the charity Place2be.
Some issues that clients have come to me with include: feeling distressed or dissatisfied with life, experiencing relationship difficulties, feeling at a crossroads, wanting to explore identity issues, depression, anxiety, work or academic related issues, stress, eating disorders, self-harm, bereavement, loss, low self-esteem or feelings around self-worth.
I am currently accepting individual adult clients for face-to-face weekly counselling. I love working with a diverse range of clients and welcome enquiries from people of all cultural backgrounds, ethnicities, nationalities, abilities, sexualities and genders.
