Prior to entering the counselling field I worked in public service for over 40 years. This included helping people in tragic, traumatic and other difficult life situations. I currently work voluntarily for a Scottish mental health charity with clients experiencing a broad range of difficulties. During my career I gained benefit from receiving counselling and consider myself a trauma survivor. I am grateful for the help and support I received and fully appreciate the value of sharing difficulties in a safe, confidential space with someone you can trust. I am happy to have a no obligation discussion about your needs, concerns and expectations for therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
SCOTACS Diploma in CBT Counselling and Groupwork
COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills
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.
