Appointments available now on Saturday from 9.30am. (Appointment times Monday afternoon, Thursday afternoon and evening, Friday afternoon and evening also available.)
I practise person-centred counselling, face to face, with individuals or couples of any age, background or experience. I work with people of any gender, age, sexuality, minority ethnic culture, class or religion. I am as happy listening to people who come with an immediate crisis that takes one or a few sessions to shift or resolve, as with people who are exploring subtle or long-standing issues over years.
My starting point is respect for each person who comes to counselling: you are the expert on your own life. My role is to listen carefully, accept and try to understand, with the aim of facilitating a unique relationship which contains opportunities for self-healing and growth. Most important for me is that I aim to be real and to be fully present with you.
Appointments last an hour, a full 60 minutes.
Originally from London where I was brought up, went to Uni, and worked, I have been living in Glasgow for over 20 years. I am a practising artist, with wide interests and curiosities.

Training, qualifications & experience
I completed the post-graduate diploma in person-centred counselling at Strathclyde University in 2011, though I first began training in counselling in 1993.
I have worked as a volunteer at the Tom Allan Centre since 2010 and have been developing a private practice over the last 2 years.
I have experience in facilitating drawing and play in counselling and I find Focusing a useful way of approaching problems. Any of these can become part of our work if they interest you.

Standard fee is £40 per hour, reduced rates can be agreed for students or people on low income, based on what is affordable for you and possible for me. Home visits available at no extra cost.
The premises I use in Kelvingrove Street are accessed via 10 steps with a handrail.
Home visits possible: I can offer counselling appointments in your home. I usually arrange a free first meeting in a neutral setting to discuss this unless mobility issues are the reason you are seeking home visiting. I can be very flexible regarding fees and appointment times for home visits. Let me know when you first contact me if this interests you.
Phone me, text or email and let's see if we can work something out that suits.
