I am continuing to work throughout COVID 19 pandemic. I can offer telephone, Zoom, Skype or Face Time appointments.
Working therapeutically with children, young people and adults, I have over 20 years experience supporting families within the Education and Charity Sector. I enjoy private practice, offering Person-Centred Counselling. According to person-centred counselling, all individuals have within themselves the capacity to grow and reach their potential, however, sometimes external factors can get in the way.
I will form a therapeutic relationship with you and will not judge you. As an Individual Member of the BACP, I, at all times, abide by The Code of Ethical Practice for Counselling Professions. I am confident that the therapeutic relationship heals and empowers clients.
Usually meeting weekly with clients at my private practices in Knightswood and Bearsden, each therapeutic session lasts for 50 minutes.
A Welcome Space offers you a safe environment where you are able to explore issues. Where required, a comfortable waiting room is provided for family, carers or close friends.
I have a special interest in supporting clients with bereavement, change and loss.
With my extensive training and qualifications to date combined with substantial experience outlined above, I am confident working with a range of issues including but not limited to: anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, relationships, bereavement, self-esteem, bullying, health, family, divorce, childhood memories, confidence, and infidelity. The counselling offered is not limited to a specific issue. You will be supported with whatever you choose to bring to the session.
Couples Counselling is also offered.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
