About me

Picking up the phone to a counsellor can be a daunting process. I wish to reassure you that I am very aware of this and hope to offer you a sensitive, non judgmental environment to enable you to work through whatever has brought you to counselling.

I am a qualified, accredited person centred counsellor and also continue to work as a registered nurse. I'm experienced in working with male and female adults and young people over the age of 12.

To date I have worked in an NHS adult counselling service, a Glasgow secondary school offering counselling and now privately. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice. I have over 500 hours of counselling experience.

I offer confidential 50 minute sessions for individuals or couples. Initially a 30 minute reduced rate face to face session or a free 30 minute telephone session can occur to establish if counselling is something you wish to continue with and so we both decide if I am the right counsellor for you. I believe the relationship between you and I, the counsellor, is crucial to how successful counselling can be, however I am aware it can take time to build up trust. It also gives you a chance to ask any questions either about myself or the process.

I work within Glasgow and see clients in confidential Southside premises, near to Cathcart train station. I offer evening appointments only.

I am here to listen, really get to understand you and your experience and be very open and honest with you. This can be very helpful and insightful sometimes. I am not here to tell you what to think or do, I believe you have the capacity to do this, but we all can get a bit lost' along the way and my hope is by offering all that I can, counselling will help you with this.

There are many reasons why someone may come to counselling. Some may be very clear about what the issues are, whilst others may have a sense that something doesn't feel quite right, but don't know why. They may be stuck with life, troubled by the past, overwhelmed, angry all the time, feel they are struggling with life or suicidal. Some people may want to focus specifically on on their own personal or professional development for the future.
