I am a fully qualified, experienced Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering a compassionate, safe and non-judgemental therapy.
I aim to offer a warm, professional relationship within which we can look at different perspectives over problems and learn about yourself in an environment where you can completely be yourself in a place of safety and confidentiality.
Through the therapeutic relationship we can work together to find new ways forward, which promotes change, acceptance and growth. Clients tell me that counselling helps them see their situations much clearer and begin to naturally feel stronger and gain insight and understanding to make changes that are right for them. Change happens when we face our fears, identify feelings, see problems in a different light and look at patterns that are not working for us.
I currently work from a peaceful setting in Lanark. When the time is right for you feel free to call or email me so that we can work together for a better future.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
