I am a Counsellor with over 15 years experience of working in the mental/emotional health field.
As an Integrative Therapist I use a variety of therapeutic approaches including Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. However (as most of the research suggests) I would consider that the relationship between counsellor and client is usually more important than the type of approach used.
I have been practising as a counsellor since 2004 and have had my own private practice in the West End of Glasgow since 2008. I also do EAP (employee assistance programme) work, part time for a leading International Organisation. I have extensive experience of working with a wide range of issues including emotional and relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, loss/ grief, self-esteem, bereavement and addictions. From my base in the West End of Glasgow I offer a supportive and comfortable environment where personal issues can be explored safely and without judgement.
I passionately believe that all individuals have the capacity to fulfill their potential and make positive choices/ changes in order to improve the quality of their lives.
