I am a Person Centred Counsellor & Supervisor. Using the Core values of the Person Centred approach provides the foundation for real therapeutic growth. It is from this place that I can work with others - trusting there is a way forward for everyone.
My counselling work covers many areas of mental health – anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement and loss, childhood and adult abuse and many other subjects.
I have extensive experience of working with substance misuse and also broad experience of peri-natal mental health, both in 1:1 settings and group-work.
Additionally, I work as a Supervisor, supporting the clinical practice of counsellors and student-counsellors.

I am also an accredited counsellor with Alcohol Focus Scotland (AFS) (www.alcohol-focus-scotland.org.uk).
