About me

I am a person centred counsellor based in Peterhead. I am a registered member of the BACP and have 14 years experience of counselling in both private and voluntary sector. I offer day and evening sessions and can offer both Office based and Walk and talk therapy. I also offer animal assisted therapy with my cocker spaniel.

I offer a safe and confidential environment where we can work together to help you look at and work through whatever may be causing you distress. We can work together for as many or few sessions as you feel comfortable and although most people prefer weekly sessions we can arrange frequency to suit you

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Sometimes we just need to be heard, it can be difficult to define why we feel out of sorts, although often the issue that is causing distress cannot be changed, it can help to share the burden by being heard.
