About me

I am qualified in Integrative Therapy which means I use (and combine) several types of Therapy depending on the individual needs of my client. I work from my Therapy room in my home in Larkhall, (and while in lockdown, I am Counselling using telephone, video call or zoom) .

***When restrictions are lifted on 26th April, I will resume offering face to face sessions.

Packs will be provided (i.e. a mask, sanitiser, tissues and a bottle of water) to keep you comfortable, and we will be able to socially distance.***

I offer you a safe and confidential space where you are free to talk about your problems and challenges.  Sad?  Anxious?  Low?  Scared?  Worried?  Angry?  We can explore whatever is needed to help you to begin to feel yourself again.

Some people hold on to issues for years, and by doing this we can affect our overall health. I believe that many of our issues stem from experiences we had when we were younger.  Working through these, making sense of them (at your own pace), it's possible to give you back a  feeling of freedom you may not have felt for a long time.

I can also help with tools and coping strategies for  be you to be more confident of living with, and dealing with your issues in the future.

As well as working with adults, I have gained a lot of experience working with children and young people, and so I see clients of all ages.

I am fully insured and all of my certificates are available to view if required.

I attend monthly supervision.

Recently, I have worked a lot with young people who have problems with their self-esteem, and gained quite a lot of valuable experience.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
