Counsellor at My Therapy Time

About me

I am a counsellor specialising in working with people who are overwhelmed.

Are you feeling anxious or overwhelmed?

You may sense that you are running out of resources, mentally and physically.

This can feel frightening, but you are not alone and things can feel better.

Recent change, loss, or too many responsibilities may have led you to ask   "Is there an easier way forward?"

This is when therapy can provide relief and support.

I have a calm and gentle approach. In the sessions you have a safe confidential space to talk.

Be heard, understood and valued.

There is freedom to find the restorative balance that you are seeking.

Key details

PVG Scheme

In Scotland, criminal records checks are carried out by Disclosure Scotland. Professionals working with children or vulnerable adults must join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme. You can learn more at mygov.scot , or contact this professional directly.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
