I am a fully qualified counsellor registered with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work from my private practice in Biggar, South Lanarkshire and also offer counselling online. If interested in Walk and Talk therapy, the counselling session can be taken outdoors into the natural environment. My training is in the person centred approach and I also work in the community arts, wellbeing and mental health sector.
There are many reasons why people choose to seek counselling support. Possibly you feel unsure of your next steps forward, feel tired, emotional or overwhelmed and uncertain of what you are feeling. You may be struggling with anxiety, low mood & depression or grieving. You may be managing the challenges of a particular mental health diagnosis or facing the impact of past trauma or abuse. Counselling can offer a regular time and space to explore your concerns.

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
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
