I am an Integratively trained counsellor with over 32 years experience of working with clients, helping you to explore and work through various issues which may be affecting your life at the moment. Although Integratively trained I specialise in Psychodynamic and Humanistic therapies, and where appropriate use Cognitive Behavioural therapy.
Being Integratively trained means that I have a wide knowledge of different counselling theories, which I can use and adapt to suit clients individual needs.
I specialise in working with people experiencing relationship problems, including couple counselling, loss and bereavement, mental health problems including anger management problems and self confidence and self esteem issues.
I am also a qualified trainer and have taught counselling courses at Telford college in Edinburgh and Adam Smith College in Kirkcaldy.
Entering psychotherapy means that you are making space in your life for personal growth and change and I am making a commitment to support you in this journey. Therapy is intended to be a supportive, healing and sometimes challenging relationship and if worked through, together can be life changing.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
