About me

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by life and experience difficulties that feel insurmountable. Often we don't know where to turn. This is when counselling may help. Counselling offers a place where you can speak in confidence; where you're listened to and not judged; where you can work through your difficulties.

As a qualified person-centred counsellor I have experience of working with a range of issues including traumatic experiences, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, alcohol or drug related issues and bereavement.

I have worked with Aberdeen University Counselling Service, Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland and Aberdeen FoyerI was also a volunteer counsellor at ChildLine Aberdeen for 5 years which allowed me to gain experience and understanding of working with young people from the ages of 12-18 in particular, although I now also work with younger children too.

Counselling, for me, is about providing a space to explore your concerns with someone who is not directly involved, and by doing this it can provide a new perspective on life. The way that I work isn't about telling you what to do, it's about listening to you and through gentle questioning getting you to identify what's going on for you and how you would like things to change. Counselling is a unique experience for everyone, and you will be very much in control of the pace and content of what is discussed, as I work to develop a space where you feel accepted, heard and understood.

Any questions at all please just get in touch.
