About me

There may be issues and difficulties in your life which might be causing you to feel unfulfilled or distressed, or even just a sense of unhappiness within you. I offer you a private confidential time and space to explore all of these. I aim to work with you in a way which offers understanding and support but also enables you to gain new perspectives or acceptance

I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I am registered with UKCP and as a  BACP Senior Accredited practitioner. I have over 20 years experience in counselling and psychotherapy and have been working therapeutically with people for over 25 years. My background was as a GP for many years.I work with mainly individuals.

My practice is mainly based at my peaceful office in Lanark, but I do offer some availability in Southside of Glasgow midweek. I see mainly individuals and do not work with young people under the age of 16.

I am committed to ongoing professional development and I abide by both BACP and UKCP Codes of Ethics and am subject to their complaints procedures.

Training, qualifications & experience

I first qualified with a Diploma in Counselling in 2000 from the University of Strathclyde. I obtained my accreditation with BACP in 2002, and became Senior Accreditied in 2011. I undertook specialist postgraduate training in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute/ Middlesex University in London in 2008 and gained a Masters Degree in  Psychotherapy in 2011. I became fully registered with UKCP at that time.

In 2003, I gained my Certificate in Supervision with PCT Britain. I offer supervision to both individuals and groups. on a one to one basis I work with experienced counsellors and those in training as well as people who work in the healthcare professions.

I have worked in a variety of settings over the past 15 years: I have worked extensively as a counsellor in General Practice , in a not-for-profit organisation serving local communities, in a specialist NHS psychotherapy service and in student counselling. I have also worked in private independent practice for over 15 years.
