About me

I am a Senior Counsellor at MAC Counselling, where we provide therapy in our offices based in Giffnock and Clydebank.

I have a background in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, however I work integratively with my clients. This means that I will flex my style of counselling, to meet your needs and expectations, rather than being rigid in one particular approach.

I also provide counselling to couples experiencing difficulties in their relationships. Couples come to therapy for a whole host of reasons -  communciation issues, affairs, trust issues - and all can greatly benefit from the process. 

Regardless of what brings you to therapy, you will be warmly welcomed into my comfortable and safe room, where you will be supported throughout your journey towards the change you'd like to see.   

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as well as training in Couples Therapy, and also undertake frequent Continuing Professional Development courses.

I have a PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Registration with Disclosure Scotland.

In addition to this I am also a skilled Facilitator and Trainer, and run Wellness Programmes with MAC Counselling in the Glasgow area.

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.

Our Newton Mearns office has wheelchair access.
