About me

I am a Person Centred Counsellor.

Before training as a Counsellor, I had a long experience of pastoral support roles - student advising and union casework - in a Higher Education setting. I have also experienced the benefit of counselling during a crisis in my own life.

More broadly, I think I have discovered the creative potential of 'real conversation' in many contexts - personal interactions, academic seminars, union negotiations, administrative engagements, and therapeutic relationships.

Sometimes we know we need to talk, long before we know what it is that we need to talk about.

If you would like to meet, I do not charge for an assessment session.

Training, qualifications & experience

MA (Philosophy) 1975
CA (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) 1981
MLitt (Philosophy) 1987
PG Diploma in Person Centred Counselling (Aberdeen) 2016

I worked as an accountant in the oil industry before joining the University of Aberdeen Business School in 1990. I have been a volunteer counsellor since 2013.

I have had a long interest in mental health issues, and served on the Board of Mental Health Aberdeen for many years. I started my formal Counselling training on my retirement in 2011.

My philosophical interests are mainly focussed on language and meaning.
