I am a trained person-centred therapist, sometimes integrating mindfulness, relaxation techniques and creativity into my approach. I can offer you a safe, confidential and warm space to explore how you are feeling.
I provide counselling which can be short term, focussing on specific issues that you may be having and also longer term therapy that can help you to unravel more complex difficulties in your life.
Together we will work out which type of therapy will suit you and, whatever that may be, I will go alongside you on your journey, helping you to resolve problems and difficult experiences you may have had.
I have worked for many years as a volunteer with The Samaritans in various roles. Working with The Samaritans has given me a clear insight into the despair and suffering suicidal feelings can bring, together with the stresses of everyday living.
Our sessions can be face-to-face from my base in the South Side of Glasgow, following Government advised safety guidelines, online through video calling (Zoom or Skype) or by telephone.
To book an appointment, you can send an email here or contact me by phone, or if you'd prefer you can send me a text.

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.
