About me

I practice as a counsellor in the Inverclyde area and can offer face to face counselling from rooms in Greenock and Wemyss Bay 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.
