I am an integratively trained counsellor with seven years of experience working with clients. Helping them explore and work through their issues. Although I am integratively trained, I specialise in Psychodynamic and Person-centred therapy. However being integratively trained means I have a wide knowledge of different counselling theories that I can adapt to suit individual needs. I work with clients experiencing loss and bereavement, mental health problems, anger management problems, self confidence and self esteem issues. By entering psychotherapy, it means that you are making space in your life for personal growth and I will make a commitment to support you in this journey. Therapy is intended to be a supportive, healing and sometimes challenging and if worked through together, It can be life changing. Therapies offered: Integrative Person-centred Psychodynamic
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Integrative Counselling (Person centred) and (Psychodynamic Counselling) accredited. I have 12 years training in Cardonald College, Glasgow, Adam Smith College, Kirkcaldy, Urban Therapy Ltd, Lochgelly, Fife and DAPL (Drugs and alcohol project Ltd) along with seven years working face to face with clients.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
