About me

Reaching your limit?  Feeling stuck?  Under pressure?  Feeling down?

I work from a comfortable counselling room, 'The Gateway' where I provide a warm, safe and confidential space to allow people to talk openly about their difficulties and concerns. You would be welcomed into a  non-judgemental environment where you can explore your issues and talk as freely as you wish without pressure or prejudice.  I will try to help you gain a clearer perspective of your situation and support you throughout as you come to your own decisions about what is right for you.

I desire to bring openness and sensitivity to my counselling work as I support people to confront difficult issues and situations. I use an integrative approach and draw on the mainstream models of counselling. I believe that my own life experience and background has helped me to sustain a compassionate and straightforward approach to therapy.

I have 10 years experience in working with people in a wide range of issues, and I work in both short and long time frames. For some people, very few sessions are sufficient and for others, a longer time is more appropriate. I usually see clients weekly, but this is decided together with each person.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling from Queen Margaret College University, Edinburgh and an MSc in Counselling from Abertay University, Dundee.

I am a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work under their strong Code of Ethics.
