About me

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and have experienced therapy from both sides of the equation. Perhaps, similar to you, I have endured a variety of life's trials and tribulations. Although CBT trained, I use an integrative approach which means that I use different models of counselling depending on the client's needs

My experience and training allows me to offer you a place to safely explore your concerns and find the right way forward for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

SCOTACS Diploma In Counselling and Groupwork - A Cognitive Behavioural Approach (SCQF Level 10, Honours Degree)

COSCA Counselling Certificate

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Experience in working with low mood, sadness, depression and anxiety.
