About me

I am an experienced counsellor working in private practice in Glasgow city centre and Bearsden. I am friendly, accepting and down to earth.

My experience and skills mean that I can see clients with a range of difficulties. Consider coming to me if you are looking for a safe and confidential space to talk about what's getting in the way of you being fully able to enjoy your life. Perhaps you are struggling with experiences from the past, relationship difficulties, worrying, low mood or low self-esteem. Together we can look at ways to overcome these difficulties and move towards a brighter better future.

I have supported clients who came with the following difficulties:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Bullying
  • Post natal depression
  • Issues with Self-esteem
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Sexual abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Sexuality and gender issues
  • Midlife and menopause challenges
  • Addictions
  • Physical health conditions
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Low mood

Training, qualifications & experience

In my career before becoming a counsellor I was a trained Staff nurse and then an Occupation Health Nurse. In 2003 I studied at Strathclyde University and hold a Post Graduate diploma in Counselling. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and work to their code of ethics.

I have been involved in counselling since 1992 working in Primary Care with clients referred by their GPs, at the Sandyford Initiative counselling service, with students at The University of Glasgow and with self-referring clients within private practice in locations throughout the city. I have many years of experience working with clients with a full range of difficulties.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
