About Me

My aim is to promote wellbeing through connection with nature and horses

I have travelled, lived and worked in various countries, immersing myself in cultures other than my own. This has given me deep insight and respect for difference, as well as an understanding of the similarity and connection that we all have as humans, wherever we are from. 

On returning to the UK I settled down in Inverness, where I worked for seven years as a support worker while studying counselling and psychotherapy at the University of the Highlands and Islands.

Music, mindfulness, nature, animals and good friends are the things that bring joy to my life.

I have personal and professional experience with bereavement, grief, suicide, domestic abuse, self-harm, narcissism, alcohol and drug misuse, trauma, anxiety, guilt and low self-worth. This gives me a deep awareness, insight and understanding of the ways in which life can affect us, and believe that we all have the capacity, given the right support, to overcome adversity and begin to thrive again. 

I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor and a Member of the Scottish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, COSCA

Since qualifying I have gained over five years' experience as a volunteer counsellor as well as in private practice. I also run Music as Therapy sessions in Inverness. 

I have experience in alcohol and trauma counselling and have studied Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Music Therapy, Counselling for behaviour change. I have completed Exploration, Foundation and Focus training in Equine Facilitated Wellness. 

I undergo regular supervision, which means that I have ongoing professional guidance for maintaining and developing a high standard of practice.
