About me

I specialise in working with men - helping you to become more resilient and skilled in dealing with lifes difficulties. Deal with stress, negotiate satisfying relationships, and overcome painful feelings that undermine your peace of mind.

Starting counselling - confronting and sharing difficult thoughts and feelings - can at first feel daunting, but with a skilled and encouraging counsellor, clients gain insights and compassion for themselves, and thus are enabled to change and grow.

With a background in education, I am also experienced in helping with young people to overcome difficult family / relationship issues as well.

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