About me

'At one time or another, we all try to silence painful emotions. But when we succeed in feeling nothing, we lose the only means we have of knowing what hurts us, and why.'

(Stephen Grosz, The Examined Life)

Hello. I am a qualified person-centred therapist in the West end of Glasgow and I'm based in Napiers Herbalists, Glasgow. I'd like to work with you on whatever issues are preventing you from living your best life, in a timescale to suit you. I can also work by Skype.

For me, training in the person-centred approach meant I could be sure that I was offering my clients the best service I can without any thoughts that I am an 'expert' on you and your life. Rather we will work together to uncover, explore or resolve whatever it is you are facing.

I've had a range of different jobs in my career but my work as a therapist - sitting alongside someone at a difficult point in their life and seeing them learn to cope in a better way or resolve something which has been holding them back - is the most rewarding work I've done.

Ideally we will meet regularly - weekly works best initially - and over a session explore together your thoughts and feelings and behaviours and the issues which are troubling you. Being in therapy can be hard work - but it can change your life forever.

Member organisations


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.

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.
