About me

I offer confidential counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples in Stirling. My approach is broadly integrative, and I try to tailor it to the needs of each client. There is a lot of information on my website, not just about me and the way I work, but also about the sort of problems that are brought to me and the range of resources available locally. I am registered with some of the major health insurance companies (but currently not BUPA).

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been seeing clients since 2000 and have been UKCP registered since 2004.

I have a postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and an Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Psychotherapy. I am a fully-qualified clinical supervisor and EMDR therapist, and have an additional training as a Relate counsellor for couple work.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

Coming to counselling can be daunting, especially for the first time, and I do what I can to make things a bit easier. Most people start by having a preliminary chat on the phone or by e-mail, but you don't have to give much detail unless you want to. I see it as part of my job to answer questions and help you in your search for the right practitioner. If I don't have space or don't think I would be the right person to work with you, I will say so and suggest other names or ideas.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

I'm afraid wheelchair access at the premises would not be practicable or safe, but I am prepared to consider online work.

Availability
