About me

Some people worry that their issue is too small or too big, yet there are few people who couldn't benefit from counselling in one way or another. If you have been thinking about counselling but putting it off, please feel free to get in touch to discuss your reservations.

As a Qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) and Integrative Practitioner, I can work with you using well evidenced tools to help you make the changes you want in your life.

I offer CBT and compatible therapies like Compassion Focused, Solution Focused and Personal Construct therapies, within an accepting, collaborative, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship, where you are valued and recognized as the expert on your own life. Everything discussed is kept strictly confidential, within the standard conditions.*


CBT has been shown to be effective across the range of anxiety problems (Social Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder or Attacks, Post Traumatic Stress, OCD, phobias), depression, past trauma, low-self esteem, addictions, Seasonal Affective Disorder, weight issues, grief, anger and relationship problems among others.
CBT can help us learn new ways to understand, and think about, ourselves and others, which in turn can help us feel and act differently, equipping us with well researched tools to help tackle life’s problems even long after therapy has ended.

CBT tends to be briefer and more time-limited than other talking therapies, but can be longer term when desired and necessary.

I work with adults – from young adults, of 16 and over, to the oldest. For Secure Video calls, from 18 and over.

Sessions can be arranged in Milngavie or Online, where you are.

Daytime or evening appointments can be arranged.

Online secure sessions by Video Call or Voice Only Call can be to any region or some other countries (for example via Vsee rather than Skype as it is more secure - it is also free to download and use) . Online sessions can help overcome some of the obstacles to accessing therapy, as sessions can be arranged at a really convenient time, with no restriction due to mobility, transport or parking. For clients caring for others, it can also make sessions more feasible.


If you would like to find out more or are interested in arranging an initial free session please contact me by clicking on the 'Email Me' button above or text or phone 07984040947, I will respond as soon as I can, often within a hour or so and certainly in less than 24 hours Mon-Sat.

Thereafter, sessions last 60 minutes and are £45, or £40 for online secure video calls.

If a 90 minute session is required and agreed the fee is £65, or £58 for online.

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.
