About me

It can be daunting to seek counselling and seems so much to consider and choose from. I am a person-centred counsellor, who respects that what is good for one person isn't for another. I believe in tailoring counselling sessions around what the client wants. Exploring and finding ways of dealing and coping with difficulties in your life. The first step is finding a counsellor you feel a connection with.  I offer assistance with issues such as anxiety both general and social, depression, domestic abuse and relationship issues to coping with loss and various truama.  I can offer a safe space to talk and find a way forward.

Why not send an email to request a free 15 minute telephone consultation?

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my HND in counselling with a PDA in Addiction at Glasgow Clyde College.  I currently work with organisations that deal with crisis and trauma primarily.  With a deep understanding of mental health issues and the impact of childhood experiences on us as adults.  I continue to educate and learn on a variety of subjects as part of my continuing professional development, which is a requirement of my membership of the BACP.

I am also about to embark on training to work with young people and children, wishing to make a difference to their mental health and life experiences.

Member organisations


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.
