About Me

I believe that however difficult things are, positive change can happen.

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 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.

After completing a four year course at the University of the Highlands and Islands in Inverness I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor. I am dedicated to continuing my professional development and have studied Online Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Behavioural Therapy and Trauma-based Therapy. I have done online and experiential courses in Music Therapy and Equine Facilitated Wellness.

As a Counsellor Member of the Scottish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, COSCA, I am committed to follow their moral and ethical guidelines, which helps ensure safety, confidentiality and your peace of mind. http://www.cosca.org.uk/

I participate in regular group and one-to-one confidential supervision, which means I have ongoing professional guidance for maintaining and developing a high standard of practice.

I have had personal and professional experience working with bereavement, grief, suicide, domestic abuse, self-harm, narcissism, struggles with dependence on alcohol and drugs, trauma, anxiety, guilt, low self-worth.
