I graduated from Glasgow University with a BSc in Psychology (Hons) and MRes in Neuroscience and Psychology. I have been working with children and young people in a counselling role for over 6 years. In the UK I worked with a well-known charity giving emotional support to a wide variety of clients on a range of issues including; peer relationships, bullying, depression, self-harm, sexual abuse, physical abuse, family relationships and academic pressure.
I work as MKA’s emotional counsellor and provide support for all students on any emotional issue that they may have. I work with students on a one-to-one basis on any personal issues; in groups, focusing on topics such as peer pressure, body image, self-esteem and exam anxiety; and in the classroom facilitating peer-peer and student-teacher communication.
