About me

My counselling practice provides a comfortable, private space based in the south side of Glasgow. It is conveniently situated for public transport and offers parking.

I am a fully qualified counsellor and supervisor, registered with The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and have experience in a wide variety of areas.

I offer a safe, supportive, confidential space in which you can speak freely and explore what is happening for you without being judged. My aim is that within the counselling relationship you will experience empathy, openness and acceptance, helping you to discover the strengths and inner resources you need to manage life's difficulties and challenges.
