About me

Life can be tough at times and sometimes it can be useful speaking to someone that won't judge you. If you think counselling can help and you would like to give it a go or if you'd like more info, get in touch today by email, text or WhatsApp. 

Weekly and fortnightly slots available. Fortnightly sessions can make counselling more affordable.

I am a fully qualified counsellor based in the South Lanarkshire area, offering face to face or zoom if it is preferred.  I am a registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). 

Counselling can help with:

  • Anxiety and when you are feeling low.
  • Bereavement.
  • Work through and process your experiences from the present and past.
  • Gain new perspectives.
  • Learn new coping strategies.
  • Support through difficult times.
  • Heal from your past.
  • Work on relationships.
  • Addiction

I am currently offering Single Session Therapy. This could be useful if you have a current issue or dilemma that needs discussed with a professional, offering a space to talk through and different perspective. This could be done with 1 or 2 sessions.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
