About me

My aim is to help you to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviour, find clarity and support you to find ways of coping that work for you. You may be experiencing anxiety; have a dilemma or important decision to make; you may have experienced a distressing event that you are struggling to come to terms with or make sense of; your problems may be many, built up over a period of time and you are wondering why you are struggling to cope now, when you have always managed before.

I offer you a welcoming, confidential and therapeutic space where you can talk to me about any matter that causes you concern.

Relationships, bereavement, trauma, life phase, work and family matters are areas I have vast experience in and passionate about working with. I have 10 years post qualification experience and work with couples, individuals and groups.

I welcome contact from you to discuss anything further.

Member organisations


Accredited register membership


Individual counselling: £40 per session

Couples counselling: £50 per session

For some clients one session of counselling is all that is required. For many it is between 6 - 8 sessions and sometimes longer term psychotherapy work may be what you are looking for. We can discuss this at your initial session. You will always be in control of this decision and can take a break from or end your counselling at any time.

Further information

I work from premises in Dumbarton, nearby to bus and train services and free parking.

There is an access ramp with a room on ground floor when necessary.

If you have any additional physical, sensory or communication needs please let me know so that we have an opportunity to discuss your requirements in time for your first session.
