About me

Everyone experiences times when life becomes overwhelming and difficult to cope with. I provide a safe and quiet place where you can explore issues and experiences in a non-judgemental and confidential environment and I'm someone you can talk to outside of your family and friends.

Sessions are usually on a weekly basis and last for 50 minutes. The number of counselling sessions you receive will be tailored to meet your individual requirements. Some move forward quickly while others benefit from longer periods of counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have gained valuable experience as a volunteer counsellor at Aberdeen Counselling and Information Service (ACIS) and hold a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling (PCT). I offer integrated counselling and combine this with Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT).

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy which is the UK's regulating governing body for safe practice.
