About me

Problems are part of everyday life, and we all encounter them. Fortunately we are able to solve them the majority of the time without any intervention. 

Everybody has problems so why should you go for counselling?

Counselling may be beneficial to you if problems become all consuming and affect your personal happiness, and start to take up a high percentage of your thinking time, preventing you from doing day to day things. The fast pace of life in today's modern world does not always offer time to reflect on how we are feeling and why we are no longer enjoying life.

Counselling won't take away your problems but can help raise your awareness and learn skills to cope differently with them. It affords an opportunity to speak in confidence outwith family and friends.

My approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which allows you to look at how your thinking influences your feelings, and in turn your behaviour and choices in life.

I first became interested in counselling when I volunteered with ChildLine over 15 years ago. Since then, I have formally trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and have worked with Addiction and Anxiety UK, as well as my own private practice. 

I have worked with clients who have had a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety, phobias, stress, depression, eating disorders, addiction, abuse (sexual, emotional and physical) low confidence and self esteem.

I am happy to have an informal chat should you wish any further information about myself or the service that I offer.

Training, qualifications & experience

Cognitive Behavioural Therapist - Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Groupwork.

COSCA Counselling Skills Certificate

Fees

My philosophy is that therapy should be accessible and affordable for all. 

With this in mind my fees are means tested, and start from as little as £15.00 per session.

Unfortunately I am not able to offer the £15.00 rate in Glasgow and fees start from £20.00 due to the cost of room hire.  

I am also able to provide counselling by telephone or via Skype if you are unable to attend sessions in person.
