About me

Are you tired of feeling anxious? Depressed? Struggling with a challenging personal decision? Therapy is an investment in yourself. Being therapeutically held in an unconditionally positive, reliable and professional relationship can enable great change in your life.

I see clients in-person at my home office in Paisley. I’m also passionate about making therapy available to everyone, regardless of location; online counselling lets me work with anyone in the UK.

Consider how you want to use your time in therapy. Do you have any therapeutic goals? What would a successful outcome of therapy look like for you?

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 150 hours of experience as a counsellor. I graduated with distinction (as joint top student) from the University of Strathclyde Counselling & Psychotherapy MSc programme. I hold a COSCA Counselling Skills Certificate and am currently completing the ACTO Online & Telephone Counselling Certificate.

Member organisations


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.
