About me

I am a person-centred trained counsellor with a pluralistic and varied approach to counselling, being guided by what you the client needs in order to move forward with the issues you have; and to support you to reach the goals you believe you want to achieve and to support in in any changes you believe you need to make.

Often life can feel overwhelming and we may feel isolated and unsure of which way to turn. My counselling offers you a safe, non judgemental space to be able to explore what is difficult and challenging for you. I will not tell you what to do because I believe we as individuals  need to come to that conclusion ourselves and most often already know what is right and best for us: we just need to be able to talk it through with someone we can trust and who wont make decisions for us or offer opinions.

Counselling helps to raise self awareness, insight and empowerment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and have several years experience of counselling in various settings including addictions , rape and sexual abuse, and domestic violence and i have knowledge and experience of a broad range of any issues which affect or impact on us as individuals. My approach is about the whole person and will involve what ever concerns you as an individual. I am warm, caring and down to earth and I believe you will feel at ease with me which I know is important.

I enjoy working with all age groups but do not feel I'd have the qualifications necessary to work with children under 12. Young people over the age of 12 but under 16 I'm happy to see in counselling with parental consent. 16 and above can contact me directly.

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.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified

In my practice in Alness I may be able to offer accessibility to those with more limited mobility
