About me

Are your experiencing low mood or anxiety? Have you been bereaved and finding grieving difficult? Do you experience low confidence or relationship issues? Do you simply want to feel better?

Then counselling may be for you. It is a proven form of therapy that can help people make positive changes in their life. Ultimately it can help you to feel better about facing life's challenges.

I have worked as a counsellor for a number of years in a variety of settings, including charities and universities. I offer a confidential and profession service at a competitive rate.

Concessions are available for students and those who might struggle to pay the standard appointment fee.

Meeting me for a consultation is a non-obligation opportunity to talk through the problem affecting you. You can then make an informed choice about whether to continue with counselling.

To arrange your consultation, simply call 07732 985928 or email counsellingkingdom@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

My Qualifications and Training

I obtained my Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Abertay in 2011, and went on to complete a Masters in Counselling.

Professional development has seen me undertake further training.  This has included applied suicide intervention skills, mental health first aid, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for anxiety, depression and obsessive compulsive disorder and strategies for addressing procrastination and perfectionism.

Most of my experience has come in a setting offering time-limited counselling.  As such I have helped people achieve good counselling outcomes in a short space of time. Hopefully this can translate into a saving for you. I place no limit on the number of sessions you can attend for however.


My Background and Experience

Since qualifying I have worked as a counsellor for the University of Dundee, Insight Counselling in Dundee, Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, the University of St Andrews and the University of Abertay.

My Masters research project was on the counselling experiences of people with specific learning difficulties such as dyspraxia and dyslexia. I have also organised and provided support services for people bereaved by suicide. My work in various organisations means I am experienced in providing support for people experiencing low mood & depression, anxiety, bereavement, low self-esteem, obsessive compulsive disorder, thoughts of self-harm and suicide and a host of other problems.

Fees

My fee for an initial consultation meeting is £20. My standard fee for a 45-50 minute counselling session after this is £35.  However I do offer a concessionary rate for students and those who would struggle to pay the £35 fee. This can be discussed further at your consultation meeting.

*Special offer for August & September 2016* - to celebrate the expansion of my practice to St Andrews, I am offering a free initial consultation to all new customers. This is a saving of £20, and an opportunity for you to meet me for no cost before commiting to ongoing counselling.
