About me

I provide a safe space to listen intently to my clients and to focus on day to day issues and challenges.

I deal with anxiety, depression, addiction( alcohol, sex, drugs, food) relationship issues, financial insecurities, work related stress, body image issues, low self-esteem and beravement/loss.  

Addiction - Do you have something in your life that you feel powerless over? Alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, shopping, toxic relationships, work, social media? 

Work Related Stress - I have over 25 years of experience working in a high pressure financial environment in senior management and various other roles. I have years of experience dealing with HR and Occupational Health and supporting work related stress cases and according to YouGov and Mental Health Foundation 60% of 18-24 year olds and 41% of 25-34 year olds feel pressured to succeed.

Body Image Issues - In a YouGov survey in March 2019 of around 5000 people 20% of them felt shame about their body image. Our perception of how we look does dictate how we feel. We live in a world where we are constantly subjected to image ideals through Instagram and TikTok etc. I work with clients to get a better understanding of how this impacts us mentally and physically and how you can change your thinking around this to bring improvement. Look into obsessive thinking patterns around our body image, eating and health etc.

Relationships - Do you struggle in relationships with your partner, family, friends and workplaces? 

Do you struggle to maintain or have healthy relationships? 

I work with clients to get a better understanding of the relationships we have with ourselves and others and how to enhance these to enhance our relationships in all aspects of our lives.

Sports Psychology - I have been a qualified sports coach for 16 years and have worked with a high number of athletes at all ages and other coaches,  some in a professional capacity. An elite mindset is essential for any high performing athlete to achieve the mental strength required to get results at the highest level. 

Training, qualifications & experience

As an integrated counsellor I offer Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Pluralistic and Solution Based Therapy. I have been working in the mental health sector since 2023 with Erskine Crisis and Keith Counselling in East Kilbride. 

I have been a SFA(Scottish Football Association) sports coach for 16 years and worked with all ages in sports and also professional athletes. 

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).
