I am an Integratively trained counsellor with over 30 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 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).
