About me

I am a fully qualified person-centred counsellor with over 14 years experience. I have worked in various settings in my career. I currently work part time for Relationship Scotland with couples, individuals and young people

I offer private therapy online for couples relationship counselling, sex therapy, individual therapy, young people and group therapy.

I have extensive experience working with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression and low self esteem. 
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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

PVG Scheme

In Scotland, criminal records checks are carried out by Disclosure Scotland. Professionals working with children or vulnerable adults must join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme. You can learn more at mygov.scot , or contact this professional directly.

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.
