About me

With many years experience, I specialise in working with couples, individuals and gay/lesbians on whatever issues anyone brings. I work from home in the north of Edinburgh within walking distance of the city centre, with frequent buses and free parking. I work within a time-frame agreed with the client/s and I offer reduced rates for those with financial constraints.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have specialist qualifications in Couples Counselling and extensive experience in Person-Centred Counselling with individual clients.

I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and fully subscribe to their Code of Ethics.

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.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
