About me

I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist with 35 years experience in short and long term work with individuals with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, loss, trauma and personal challenges; and also couples going through relationship crises, separation or divorce.

I enjoy working with a wide range of issues, especially those connected with times of change in people's lives: whether in relationships, work or personal aspirations. I particularly enjoy working with young people and artists from many fields. (Students and working artists with low income would be eligible for a reduction in fee).

I also enjoy working with older people as they make sense of their lives (appointments can be made in residential homes).

Having worked in both private practice and public sector settings in the UK and overseas I am familiar with the challenges of the modern workplace.

My therapeutic style is varied, depending on the issue presented and the client's own styles of thinking, relating and experiencing their emotions. My psychodynamic training leads me to understand current issues as they relate to earlier experience; yet I will also work with patterns that emerge from present stressors and experiences, using techniques from cognitive therapies.

My consulting room is located close to the Park/Charing Cross area of Glasgow's West End. There are weekday metered parking bays and frequent bus services. The nearest subway is St. Georges Cross.

Evening appointments can be arranged when available

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

UKCP

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
