I have an Honours Degree in Psychology from the University of Paisley awarded in 2002.  I then gained a Certificate in Counselling Skills in 2003, closely followed by the COSCA  Counselling Skills Modules. 

From there I went on to achieve a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Strathclyde in 2005.  I also have an Advanced Diploma in Trauma Counselling from the Counselling Institute awarded in 2008 and I regularly attend training courses to further my professional development.
