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.
