About me

I am an Accredited Member of BACP offering counselling in person (southside of Glasgow) and on-line (UK wide) for individuals.

It can be a daunting prospect to choose a counsellor just when we are at our most vulnerable, I hope that what you read here resonates with you.  We all struggle with difficult life events such as: Anxiety, problems in our relationship, bereavement, stress or feeling overwhelmed by life. Often, we struggle to make sense of how we feel, and what is happening in our lives. 

Counselling offers you the opportunity to work collaboratively to understand your thoughts and feelings. We can work together to make sense of the thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns causing problems.  Working from your perspective and at your pace we bring about the changes that allow you to develop the self-acceptance and self-awareness in your life. 

I offer a safe, confidential space, where you will be heard and accepted.  Previous clients tell me that they found the courage and the strength through counselling to make changes in their lives that allow them to make positive changes. Often, we feel stuck and are unsure how to move forward but realise something has to change.

I have experience in working with a wide range of people, I am particularly familiar with that helpless feeling that life should be better, those struggling with their relationships, anxiety and men’s issues

So yes, it can be daunting to choose a counsellor for the first time, so please feel free to call or email me to ask for more detail with your questions. 

You can also look at my website (https:\\ or you could ask for a free 20-minute phone consultation to speak to me and see if you feel you could work with me

I will reply to all questions quickly and without obligation.

I look forward to talking to you.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
