About me

I practice as a counsellor in the Inverclyde area and can offer face to face counselling from rooms in Greenock or telephone counselling if that is more suitable. My fees are on a sliding scale from £25-40 at the client's discretion and I would normally see clients weekly. I am a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I am also a member of the Mindfulness Association. As well as offering one to one counselling I offer Mindfulness to clients and groups. I trained at the University of Strathclyde in the Person Centred Approach.
