About me

Hi I understand it can be difficult to take the first step when you are looking for help and support. Counselling is on a weekly basis.Meeting each week will give you the space and time to talk through your difficulties and help you understand your situation more clearly.

I have been working as a counsellor and trainer for over 10 years. I am a member of and accredited trainer with COSCA.
(The Scottish Counselling Body) I work part time teaching on the COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills course. I am professional and work within COSCA codes of practice and ethical framework.

I have experience of working with people on a variety of issues including: depression, anxiety, bereavement, stress, relationship difficulties, anger and abuse.

I qualified initially in Community Education. I trained as a person centred counsellor but also use cognitive behaviour techniques. In the last two years as part of my continuous professional development i have completed the following training courses:

Cognitive Behaviour Toolkit
ASSIST suicide prevention
Mental Health First Aid
Certificate in Couple Counselling
