About me

Hi, I am a qualified and experienced Person Centred Counsellor. and Counselling Supervisor. I am a Reflective Practitioner and and am a registered Practitioner Member of COSCA.  I have been working as a Counsellor in Practice for 10 years. I am also a COSCA qualified Counselling Supervisor. My experience in working within Mental Health Charities' within the Voluntary sector spans over 23 years and so means that I am able to bring this breadth of experience in working with emotional difficulties into my Practice. I work with a confidential, non-judgemental and respectful approach. I provide a safe environment for exploring your emotions. My Private Practice is based near Milnathort. I also work as a Counsellor to an Anti Poverty Charity who support people experiencing Poverty and/in Recovery from Addiction and are experiencing Mental Health difficulties in the Perth, Kinross and Fife area. I have previously set up a Counselling service within Edinburgh Women's Aid. I have also worked extensively in an Emotional and Therapeutic role with a Self Harm Project within a Mental Health charity in Fife, working to promote Recovery in Mental Health.

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.
