About me

I am a person centred counsellor and supervisor with experience of working in various settings and with a variety of issues.

I am down to earth and offer a genuine, non judgemental space where clients can explore their experience and make sense of their world.  I enjoy working with various issues and I have a special interest in long term mental health issues, particularly hearing voices and self harm, and I currently manage a service, working with clients with these types of experiences, which I co founded in 2011.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and watching rubbish on T.V.  I am also an animal lover and have recently begun keeping amphibians.

I believe that counselling should be accessible to people whatever their financial situation so I offer a sliding scale on my fees.

I can offer an initial half hour meeting at no cost which will give you a chance to decide whether I'm the right person for you at this time.

Training, qualifications & experience

I was awarded my Post Grad Diploma in Person Centred Counselling in 2010 and I completed my counselling supervisor training in 2015, both at Strathclyde University.

I completed my MSc in 2015

I have completed advanced professional training on a wide variety of issues.

I also deliver training.

Accessibility

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.
