About me

As an Integrative Counsellor, with more than 10 years of experience also as a coach, I am able to be flexible in my approach to you, drawing from a variety of approaches and tools to suit your needs.  Since we are all unique, I pay attention to understanding your story and collaborating with you as we journey together.

I offer an initial complementary consultation over the phone to start off so you are able to ask me any questions and I can also get to know you and understand what you are looking for in counselling.

After that, if you would like to schedule some sessions, you can have the choice of having them face-to-face in my counselling office in Bridge of Don, or over video/Zoom or on the phone.

Counselling is a special time where you have a safe and welcoming space to talk about anything on your mind, knowing that everything will be kept confidential.  Whether it is just for a few sessions or for a longer season, we can all benefit from having someone to accompany us on the journey of life whenever we face difficulties and complexities.

If you are struggling with difficult circumstances and emotions like anger, stress, anxiety, depression, worry, etc, know that there is the hope of a better future and together we can explore what new skills, strategies and solutions you will discover that can help you.

I look forward to welcoming you to my counselling practice

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
