About me

Having worked for many years in mental health, I understand the importance of people having a safe, confidential and contained space to be able to talk about the issues that concern them.

As a counsellor/psychotherapist I welcome the opportunity to work with you, I will give you the time and space to talk, reflect and process what it is that is troubling you or that you want to change. Working therapeutically can make all the difference to enabling you to manage and maintain your own mental health and well being. It can help you understand the difficulties you may be experiencing in your life and help you make the necessary changes that assist you to move forward.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

COSCA is the professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland, and seeks to advance all forms of counselling and psychotherapy and the use of counselling skills by promoting best practice and through the delivery of a range of sustainable services.

Fees

Additional information

The first session will last for 60 minutes and is free, this will give us the opportunity to meet one another and explore the issues you wish to discuss in therapy. However, more importantly it will give you the time to reflect on whether you feel we can work therapeutically together as I believe people make this decision during their first session.

After the initial first session each session after that will last for one hour and will cost £45, concessions will be considered depending on an individuals circumstances.
