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 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).
