About me

Counselling is a gift to yourself; a gift of time and space to explore and try to make sense of the issues that trouble you. These things might be affecting how you think, feel or act, or even result in physical symptoms.

As a person-centred counsellor, I aim to provide a genuine, accepting and empathic therapeutic relationship in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment in which you can explore your issues, without fear of judgement, and make choices about what is right for you. If it is relevant to you, I am open to exploring issues of faith, belief and spirituality.

Sometimes it can be very difficult to talk about our problems or to find the right words to express how we are feeling. If this should be the case for you, I am happy to discuss what we can do to help you. My focus is on the unique therapeutic relationship with each client, so whatever is troubling you, whether mind, body or spirit, please telephone or email me to arrange an initial appointment.

If you are unsure whether counselling is for you, I provide a free informal telephone consultation and am happy to signpost you to other agencies if these would be more appropriate to your circumstances.

Please read on below for further information regarding my qualifications, experience, availability, fees, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy (PG Dip) and am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Reg. MBACP).

I have experience of working with people affected by a wide variety of issues, including:  grief, loss and bereavement; pregnancy loss; chronic health conditions; family and relationship difficulties; suicidal thoughts; childhood sexual abuse; domestic abuse; trauma; dissociation; stress; anxiety; depression; low self-esteem; low self-confidence; work related issues; dilemmas about life direction; phobia and alcohol. I have worked with a wide variety of people including those who self-harm; who are on the autistic spectrum; are from a British Forces background; of various sexual orientations, and so on. For me counselling is about the uniqueness of the individual person.

Fees

I offer a free informal telephone consultation (up to 15 minutes) to give you the opportunity to find out more about counselling with me.  You can follow this with an initial appointment when we can get to know each other a little more, talk about what you hope to get from counselling, and help you decide whether I am the right counsellor for you.

The fee for the initial appointment is £20. My standard fee for subsequent sessions is £40. Appointments are for one hour, and usually take place weekly. I am happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

I offer concessions to students, senior citizens, and those on a low income. I want counselling to be accessible, so am happy to discuss individual circumstances; please telephone me.

A reduced session fee applies to block bookings of four sessions paid in advance. Please telephone me for details.

Fees are payable in cash at the start of each session.

Cancellation Policy: There is no charge for sessions cancelled more than 24 hours in advance. Sessions cancelled with less notice or not attended are charged at the full session rate.

I work with individual clients on a 1:1 basis. I am not able to offer couples or group counselling.

I work from premises in Cairneyhill within a short walking distance of a bus stop. Free car park available.

I have professional indemnity insurance and am a member of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme.
