About me

Whether you've suffered Narcissistic Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Workplace bullying or trying to recover from a loved one's addiction.  I can help you make sense of the crazy-making behaviour you've come to accept as normal and how to move on and reclaim your life.

With over 20 years of clinical experience as a qualified Counsellor (MBACP), I specialise in helping people recover from Toxic Relationships with a partner, family member, friend or work colleague. 

Working in private practice, I provide one-to-one sessions by phone, video and in the near future, walk and talk therapy in Glasgow.

You can book a one-off 50-minute phone session £50

Or book a free 15-minute information session prior to booking further sessions. 

Looking forward to speaking with you.

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.
