About me

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and it may seem difficult to see a way forward.

Counselling can help by offering you the opportunity to talk over your situation in a confidential place with someone who is there to listen to you. Being in a trusting relationship where you do not feel judged can help you decide the best way forward for yourself.

I believe in walking alongside you as you make changes at your own pace; not pushing you forward or pulling you along.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling from the University of Aberdeen and have completed a course in Counselling Young People (11-18) at the University of Strathclyde.

My experience has been counselling in a GP surgery where I have worked with clients who have a wide variety of issues from anxiety, depression, drug and alcohol dependency, mental and physical abuse, bereavement and grief. Asking for help is the first step on the road to making a change and counselling can offer support along the way.

I work with young people at secondary school who are facing difficulties ranging from worries about school work, friendship issues, bullying, anxieties about body image and self harm. Allowing young people to talk to someone who sees them for themselves can feel like a lifeline when life is tough.

Therapies offered

Fees

My fees are £40 per session of around 50 minutes. Concessions are available if requested and for students.

Further information

My background is in healthcare and I worked for many years as a radiographer specialising in mammography. I also volunteered with local charities supporting families with young children and people living with cancer. This led me to seek a way to develop a deeper understanding in how to help people more personally.
