39A West High Street
I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist in Aberdeenshire. I can offer General Counselling and Psychosexual Therapy depending on what each individual or couple needs. Clients can contact me via telephone or e mail to talk about what is going on for them. We can then arrange an initial session and decide the best way forward to look at the difficulties they are having. I aim to do this by offering a confidential space and a non judgemental therapeutic relationship where clients can feel safe to open up and explore what is going on in their lives.

Since leaving school my background has been in Nursing and Midwifery. During my time as a Midwife I decided to study Counselling skills course which I gained a lot from. This then led me onto doing a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and then a subsequent Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy.
My Counselling experience has come from a variety of settings. I have worked with Cruse Bereavement where I learned a lot about loss and grief and that we all grieve in our own way. I also worked with Aberdeen Foyer which works with young adults and upwards. I also have experience of working with EAP companies offering a time limited service.
I am currently working as a Counsellor with the NHS which sees me working with a variety of clients with many different issues. I am also working as a Psychosexual Therapist with Avenue offering psychosexual therapy to Individuals and couples with sexual and relationship problems. I also have my own Private Counselling Practice where I can offer a service that suits the individual or couple depending on their needs.
