Born and brought up near Stirling, I lived in London and the South East for much of my life. For much of this time, I worked in community support, outreach and homelessness. This involved working with a range of needs, including, mental ill health, depression, anxiety and drug and alcohol related issues. I needed to be calm, patient, insightful and responsive.
I qualified with a Masters degree in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy 9 years ago. Since then, I was employed for 4 years as a Senior Counsellor, working with Carers and bereaved individuals. I was a counsellor within a drug and alcohol recovery service for 2 years. I now work in Glasgow as a counsellor in private practice, as well as presenting workshops that I have written.
I relocated to Ayrshire in 2016 with my husband David where I love walking, cycling and photographing the beautiful countryside. I am now based in Glasgow City Centre as a private practitioner.
