I offer a friendly, professional and confidential service in a safe and comfortable environment. I have had therapy myself, finding life challenging at times, so I know how it feels to be the client, sitting in the other chair. We will work at your pace, and equality, honesty and self-worth will be encouraged in our work together. I will encourage you to feel present in the moment, rather than worrying about the past and your future. We will 'explore' together your childhood experiences and your (often unhelpful) family patterns.
In other words, we would strive to help you to experience a helpful and nurturing relationship. Therapy can greatly reduce your anxiety levels.
People come for counselling for all sorts of reasons, including:
anxiety or fear
Stress related problems
relationship problems - at home or at work
emotional or physical pain
depression/feelings of worthlessness
low self esteem/lack of confidence
Emotional or physical abuse
Feeling lost or confused
People are often 'diagnosed' as having this, that and the other. I understand that diagnoses are not always helpful and I work hard to understand how you feel as an individual - a human being rather than a number with a label.
Anything at all can be brought to your counselling sessions, whether they be everyday problems or more serious issues.
I can help you to feel more comfortable with yourself as a human being (AND LIKE YOURSELF), encouraging you to value yourself and to know that it is OK to be who and what you are. I will encourage you to tell me about your feelings and think about how you may be criticising yourself and not being able to accept these feelings as valid. You can learn to stand back and observe your behaviours, rather than condemn yourself for the way you are.
Coming for counselling/psychotherapy can really help you to feel less alone. You can talk about whatever is bothering you, safe in the knowledge that you have someone you can trust.
At times we just know that something is not right and we struggle to work it out without help.
I see individual clients and couples for short or long term therapy. You decide what suits you. Some clients come for just a few sessions and others come for long-term work. We will have a review from time to time to discuss how you feel about how we are working and if/when you want to end the therapy.
The thought of going for therapy can be extremely daunting. I understand this. It is difficult to make contact and this alone can make you feel extremely anxious. While I work on a professional level, I would consider myself a warm person and I will do my utmost to make you feel relaxed.
I thoroughly enjoy my work and learn a lot from my clients.
Counselling for Relationships (Couples, Siblings, Parents and anyone in a relationship and struggling)
If you come as a couple due to relationship problems, I will do my utmost to ensure you are both heard equally. We all have our own individual values and beliefs.
At times in your relationship you may feel that you have grown apart. Perhaps you feel you are both taking each other for granted, wishing to get back to 'the way it was before'. There may be a lack of sex and/or intimacy. However, relationships, like human beings, change with time. Sometimes we are just not very good at allowing for our personal changes in our relationships. Think about how many changes you have experienced in your time together - probably several more than you had realised.
You have to share the commitment to improve your relationship. I will encourage you to be open and honest with each other, rather than bottling up your feelings - not easy without help. Communication is absolutely vital in a healthy relationship, yet sometimes we get so tangled up that we find it very difficult to be open with our partner about how we feel.
:Learn to get along without a fight.
I can offer counselling in central Glasgow, Milngavie or Bearsden, wherever is most suitable for you. If you are working full time, I can offer early evenings during the week or Saturday mornings and afternoons..
Should you have difficulties in leaving your own home, whether these be of a physical or psychological nature, please contact me and we can discuss meeting in your home, within a reasonable distance.

My fees are £45 per session for individuals. For couples my fees are £50 per hour (or £75 for a ninety minute session). You would usually pay at the end of each session.
Should you wish an initial consultation, this would last for an hour and the fee is also £45 for individuals and £50 for couples. Alternatively, we could have a brief chat on the phone before our first session to give you an opportunity to ask me about anything you would like to know about counselling.
It is important that you feel that I am the right Counsellor for you and that we could get along.
We all feel a bit 'stuck' at times and it can feel impossible to move forward. I am able to help you explore how you feel about you and your ways of being with others around you. I will listen to you with care in a safe environment and you will be treated with dignity and respect.
Therapy can enhance your life in general, improving relationships as you learn to be happy with yourself as you are. Getting to know yourself more - i.e. self awareness - is a gift!
In our work together, you will have an opportunity to be heard - perhaps for the first time in your life.
