I have practised as a counsellor since 2012 and as a counselling supervisor since 2019. I also run courses in personal development and work as a counselling trainer. Currently, much of my work is with the Metanoia Institute where I serve within the Counselling for Depression programme as a training facilitator, assessor and supervisor.
Alongside my private practice, I am committed to supporting the work of voluntary organisations that provide low-cost counselling to the wider community. I have worked as a volunteer counsellor with L'Arche and Bromley Community Counselling Service in London, and Lochaber Hope and Abbeyfield in the Highlands.
Before training as a counsellor, I worked for many years with international charities on projects in Latin America and Africa. It was my experience of meeting people in community projects and witnessing their courage and resilience in the face of great challenges that led me to study counselling.
Since 2015, I have lived in the Scottish Highlands with my husband Chris and our wee dog Monty.
