About me

Anchor 1
Ojas Counselling is about accessing the essence of life (ojas) and using your creative energy to build your own reality, pursuing what matters exclusively to you. 
I enjoy learning and applying the wisdom that both East and Western worlds offer and my go to contemporary experts in wellbeing are Deepak Chopra and Davidji. I am always reading to improve my practice and understanding of the wide range of issues we have to navigate as a species.  
I spent 2 years teaching tai chi and find it can be really effective in helping to let go of stress, providing precious images around letting go and detaching. Most of all I offer an encouraging space where you can get better at being the person you want to be.
I gained my Supervision Diploma last year and see clients who are in training as well as those with many years experience.  Supervision is a commitment to learning, embracing ethical and CPD expectations, exploring the here and now with clients and developing your career.
During my training I worked with Crossreach, a low cost Church of Scotland service, St Paul's and St George's Counselling Service, and LGBT Health.  I am now in my 5th year in private practice and I am very at ease and really interested in getting to the heart of my clients' issues.

Prior to counselling I worked in a range of roles in mental health, at a respite centre, in a mental health centre, as a community mediator, with children at school and nursery.  I also have 2 children who in their twenties.  
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to talk through coming for some counselling.  As one client recently said to me, "It's been a game changer."

Dipolma in Supervision

This training equips me to provide supervision support for counsellors' client work.  It is a space to explore the impact of the client work, to look at areas for development and a chance to discuss how the counsellor is faring in their diverse roles.  Supervision is a very helpful fresh pair of eyes which supports a professional approach to strategies, skills, exploration of counselling dynamics and ethics. 


Counselling Diploma
2017- 2018

This person-centred course taught me how to become a counsellor, involving lots of triad and group work, presenting and developing the skills needed to work best with a client.  It was creative, theoretical and practical and provided a rich environment for professional development.   

Edinburgh University
PG Certificate in Counselling

This academic course taught two types of counselling, psychodynamic and person-centred, and emphasised the dialogue between them both.  There was a thorough teaching of counselling theories and principles.
