About me

I am a Person-Centred counsellor, working with both adults and children. I work in private practice and the voluntary sector from premises in Elgin and also offer telephone and video counselling. 

As a counsellor, I offer a safe and confidential space for you to talk about any issues or concerns. Using a non-judgemental approach, I will value you as a person by working in an open and genuine way to understand your experiences from your perspective. 

I am a member of COSCA and adhere to their guidance.

Key details

PVG Scheme

In Scotland, criminal records checks are carried out by Disclosure Scotland. Professionals working with children or vulnerable adults must join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme. You can learn more at , or contact this professional directly.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
