I work from a confidential private practice based in Lanark, South Lanarkshire.
My service operates both online and face to face, with the current situation with Covid 19, I will be offering my services through private encrypted Zoom sessions.
My service is all about authenticity, I believe in being down to earth. I don't believe in fate or destiny; what I DO believe is that you are a here because you have issues in your life that you want to resolve. I am a punk with a counselling qualification, I will not waffle rambling bollocks but I will treat you with respect and dignity. I make no assertions that counselling is easy, it is both hard and rewarding work and I wouldn't be here if I wasn't passionate about it, if this service interests you I offer free initial consultations.

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.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I can be flexible dependent on my current client base, I do not work Tuesdays but I am open to working around other schedules and needs.
Though not in the office space I do have a cat so be mindful of any allergies you may have in this regard.
