About me

I offer a positive way of addressing problems and unresolved issues you may have. I am based on the Southside of Glasgow (Giffnock) with ample parking and good regular bus and rail links.

My clients tell me that they have found the courage and the strength through counselling to make the changes in their lives that allow them to live life to the full

Clients phone for all sorts of reasons, but mostly it’s because something is hurting, disrupting their life, something that they dare not tell, they are frightened of the consequence, will they be judged? How will their actions be seen? Are they being silly?

So they choose to hide and suffer in silence pretending all is well - knowing that pretending will shield them for the moment, but the hurt remains. They need someone to talk to, they want someone they can rely on to see past the hurt and the pain and to accept their reality of what is happening however, difficult.

Please don’t be afraid to pick up that phone together we can explore difficult feelings and situations free from outside judgement

  • Finding the keys to the prison
  • Finding the courage to make the choices
  • Finding the knowledge to make the changes
  • Finding the power to clear the hurdles
  • Finding the salve to heal the pain
  • Finding the ability to go forward with confidence, in life

Picking up the phone is difficult, but I can promise you that empathy and acceptance are on the other side.

I offer a comfortable relaxing space, an empathic understanding and alternative points of view and together we gain insight into your feelings, behaviour and life, putting you in the driving seat.

I have of course the professional qualifications and registrations you might wish for and my work is governed by a strict code of ethics. Yet I like to think that the most important thing that I offer is space, time and myself so you can move to a happier healthier life.

I understand that you may have more questions and I welcome casual enquiries to help you decide if a counsellor can make a difference in your life. It was Martin Luther King who said, “take the first step in faith, you don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
