Since meeting my first client in 2018, I have worked with a range of clients in community-based and specialised agencies including Cruise Bereavement Scotland and LGBT Health and Wellbeing.

As a black woman in a multi-cultural society, equality, openness and acceptance are some of my guiding principles. I have worked with and continue to welcome people from all cultural, economic and social backgrounds. I warmly welcome neurodivergent people and people who refuse to label themselves.

My core practice is Person-centred counselling, which is based on the theory that human beings have a natural instinct for growth, and ability to reach their full potential in life. I believe people come to therapy because this ability has been hampered by external factors like traumatic life events, societal harm and injustice, bereavement and many more. As your therapist, I will aspire to help you rediscover your ability to thrive, so that you are once again able to embrace life in an authentic way.

I will do this by helping you to connect with your feelings more closely; to engage with your feelings so that accepting them may feel possible. I will do this by helping you to focus more, as you speak. I will also be helping you to critically explore your feelings. Can you look at this issue in a different way? Does it provoke another feeling in you? So I will ask questions, sometimes challenging ones.

I have a growing interest in Neuroscience and I am discovering how a deeper understanding of this can help me develop different ways to meet my clients. I have found that understanding what's happening in my body, when I'm faced with a situation of threat, fear or safety, helps me find my way back to a place of equilibrium.

My aim is to walk beside you, at your own pace. with compassion and without judgement. I will help you to explore your choices and support you as you face your fears in executing them. I will walk with you as you try and identify the changes you want in your life. I will listen and help you challenge yourself as you come to terms with past decisions and make new ones.

To help you decide whether I am the right therapist for you, I offer a free 15 minute telephone meeting.
