I am a qualified integrative counsellor based in East Kilbride, Thornliebank and Shawlands. As a member of the BACP I work within their professional guidelines. I offer a safe, confidential space which is free from judgement where you will be fully accepted, allowing you the time and space to explore your thoughts, feelings and concerns.
I have over twenty years’ experience working with individuals who have experienced challenging times including addiction, abuse, anxiety, domestic violence, depression, relationship breakdown, loss, homelessness, trauma and many others. I am aware of the impact that such challenges can have on individuals and together we can explore this. Talking through thoughts and feelings can allow you to reach an understanding and acceptance of yourself and encourage positive change.
I realise that some clients can feel a little overwhelmed by the whole counselling process, you might find yourself a little worried about how to get started. Please feel free to give me a call, text or email and l will contact you with a time where we can have an informal chat.
Training, qualifications & experience
Higher National Diploma in Counselling
COSCA Counselling Skills Certificate
PDA Addiction Counselling
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
