About me


Do you need help to improve your relationships, work on your work/life balance or overcome difficult habits that might become addictions? Trying counselling can feel daunting and unfamiliar, but I take an encouraging, practical, and informal approach with clients, in which problems and solutions are the main focus. While I do work equally with women, sometimes men prefer to work with a male counsellor.

Young people:

Are you struggling to keep up with school/college work pressures or difficult relationships, but also feeling isolated and unable to share what you are going through? Sometimes it helps to speak to someone who is not your parent or teacher. With a background in education, I will support you with understanding, patience, and in complete confidence.

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.
