About me

I am a qualified counsellor, committed to delivering integrative counselling through talking based therapies. I am qualified to work with adults, young people and children. 

I aim to provide you with a safe, caring, confidential & non-judgemental environment to explore issues that may be causing you emotional distress. Issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, bereavement, relationship difficulties, anger, abuse or self harm to name but a few. I will come alongside you and help you to make sense of your situation, to process life events, current and possibly historical that may be impacting your emotional wellbeing and ability to enjoy life at this time. We will work at your pace, building a therapeutic relationship built on acceptance, trust and respect.

When working with younger clients I may use a more creative/play based approach.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma of Higher Education In Counselling (specialising in counselling children and young people).

Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling

Certificate in Counsellling from the Institue of Counselling

I have been working as a counsellor for many years and during that time I have worked for various different services such as the Bridge Community Project, Oasis Counselling Service, West Lothian Young Carers and Place2Be. I have also been in private practice since 2018.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
