Hi, Welcome to my website. I offer a number of different but complimentary therapies, that can be combined or taken individually.
I work in person and online, if online is suitable to your circumstances.
I bring around 40 years experience of helping people, first as a general nurse RGN, then following my MA as a project worker, working in the Voluntary Sector with various groups of people, society labels as disadvantaged, namely the homeless, lone parents, prisoners families and as a drug worker, supporting people emotionally & practically.
I started my counselling training at the start of my project worker work, in the year 2000 as I was lacking skills. I then combining both roles, working as a volunteer counsellor for a few years, before gaining employment as a counsellor and continuing with that today. I currently work one day a week in a Voluntary Sector Counselling Agency, combining that with my private practice and energy healing business.
I have accreditation as a counsellor/psychotherapist with COSCA the Scottish professional body, having previously gained my accreditation with BACP.
I am also a member of the British Complimentary Medicine Association and work to their code of ethics and practice and a member of the Angelic Reiki Association.
Please have a browse and if you feel connected to anything on offer here, get in touch by email, text or phone and we can begin to explore how we might work together.
I offer general counselling/psychotherapy sessions and specific Internal Family Systems (IFS) sessions. I work with young people and adults & I have a special interest in working with people who have experienced Trauma in their lives.

My Shamanic training was a natural follow on from my other training and courses. I have completed 2 different Shamanic trainings, one 2014-2016 and then an advanced year 2016-2017.
Again it’s a whole body approach and similar to my counselling & reiki work I work with the body, somatically, helping to reach parts and places, via sensations, feelings & thoughts and using the senses. Trauma can be pieces of our selves that got stuck in the past and are therefore not embodied.
