Relationship Counsellor, Dip Couns CBT, MBACP, MBABCP

About me

I am a qualified Couples Counsellor who supports couples and individuals with management of their relationship issues. Whether you want to stay together, think you need to break up or have simply fallen into a boring routine with each other, I would be happy to work with you.  

I will work with you in a way that combines the skills and theories of my CBT training with the more Psychodynamic approach of my Couples Counsellor training.

Most of us learn our communication and negotiation skills in our childhood families, the classroom or the playground.  To have healthy adult relationships, we often need to, update our communication skills and understanding of how relationships work.  I can help you do this and move towards more healthy relationship patterns.  My hope is that the insights my clients gain now will also help them maintain healthy relationships in the future.

The best way to contact me is by email.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Counselling, a CBT Approach - The Centre of Therapy, Glasgow
  • Certificate in Couples Counselling – Relationship Scotland

As well as my relationship work, I also have many years of experience working with addictions, mental health problems, trauma and adverse childhood experiences.

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.
