I am a fully qualified person-centred counsellor with over 14 years experience. I have worked in various settings in my career including doctors surgeries, charity organisations, schools and prison. I currently work part time for Relationship Scotland with couples, individuals and young people
I also offer private therapy online for relationship counselling or sex therapy, individuals, young people and group therapy for clients affected by emotional/psychological abuse.
I have extensive experience working with a variety of issues.
I work in a collaborative way and at the pace of the client. I offer a confidential non-judgemental space to explore the reasons that have brought you to counselling.
I see counselling as the piecing together of a jigsaw. You bring the pieces and by talking about your life, you are building the picture. I can help by noticing things that you may not have noticed and linking things to make sense of what you are feeling. When the picture is complete you will see your own way forward. Ultimately you are the only person who has lived your life so you will have your own answers.
I specialise in working with people who have been negatively affected by emotional/psychological abuse. I see clients on a 1 to 1 basis and I also run a group for people wanting extra support after being in an abusive relationship.
I place huge importance on the relationship between counsellor and client and as such I work within the ethical framework of BACP. I am a registered member of BACP. I am fully insured and hold an Enhanced Disclosure Scotland Certificate for working with adults and children.
I offer Zoom online sessions or telephone sessions.

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.

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).
