I believe that counselling is about providing a warm, safe space, and a relationship where you feel truly listened to, and where you feel valued for who you are.
I have lived and worked in several different European 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. I have personal experience of what it's like to feel at home in a foreign country, and to feel like a stranger in my homeland.
On returning to the UK I settled down in Inverness, and finding myself going through a very difficult time of my life, I underwent personal therapy and subsequently enrolled in the counselling course at UHI. Person Centred Therapy has had a profound and positive effect on my life.
Music, mindfulness, nature, animals, and good friends are the things that bring joy to my life.
