About me

Is your child or teenager struggling to keep up with school work pressures, friends who mistreat him/her, unable to share what she/he is going through, but you sense their loneliness and unhappiness? If he/she needs help to sort this all out with someone who is not their parent or teacher, but who will support him/her uncritically, professionally, and in complete confidence, do get in touch.

After school counselling is provided until 9pm, in a comfortable modern office building, which is conveniently located just off the M8 (Jctn 3) at Deerpark, Livingston. There is easy parking and full facilities onsite, including a waiting area and tea/coffee facilities. Counselling is also available 9.30 - 5pm.

With a background in education, I specialise in working with young people.

PLUS: I currently do short term EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) work with employees.

PLUS: I have several male clients who come to counselling because they need help with understanding and managing their emotions - the notion that "men are not supposed to do emotions" is to blame for much of male unhappiness today. Having a male counsellor in this situation can be very helpful.

Bullying

Exam stress
