My Counselling Journey
Caring, Compassionate and Competent
I studied integrative counselling in 2018 and gained a diploma in counselling a few years later. During this time, I volunteered with the Samaritans and Cruse Bereavement Scotland. I later worked as a sessional person-centred counsellor and have experience of supporting people who have adverse childhood experiences. My learning of psychological theories gave me a foundation and I have extended my skills and knowledge into the trauma awareness and autonomic nervous system, with an advanced level certificate in the awareness of trauma and understanding the Polyvagal Theory. I am passionate about people and believe that change is possible with support and compassion. I can support individuals through a psycho-education of their own nervous system and co-regulation.
I hold certification in addiction, trauma awareness, suicidal ideation and I am trained to use naloxone.
I am a walk leader with Paths For All and the Scottish Ramblers and can lead risk assessed walks within the Glasgow and nearby areas to ensure safety while outdoor counselling.
The process of change is unique to each person. You are your own expert of yourself and what feels right for you. Trust your instincts and make your own choice for change.
