About me

Welcome. So much for depression and anxiety, what about hope?

Clients say that my practice is welcoming and focuses on listening, immediacy and where needs be practical solutions. I understand financial and time constraints and offer an early appointment system. Where necessary our work can be brief with support and exploration into possible life choices and directions. The Glasgow West End practice is within easy walking distance of Charing Cross Station and Glasgow University.

Some clients find one session sufficient and most no more than six sessions, but there is no limit and all sessions can be distributed to suit your life-style. The aim is to focus on and support you through your particular current challenges so that you emerge from our conversations together enabled live authentically and well.

I am a time-practised professional with up-to-date knowledge of local referral systems. I have worked in public service for over twenty five years - with all ages and stages from 16 to 86.  Specialisms range from critical incident debriefing, addiction and employee counselling to university teaching, training and tutoring as well as facilitating workshops and groups. I am currently a University Research Affiliate, Counsellor and Supervisor as well as Team Trainer and Practitioner Supervisor in University Support services. I have counselled and supported hundreds of students, undergraduate and postgraduate, towards the successful completion of their studies.

Please send a brief email with your name and telephone number requesting a call or an appointment. If possible please detail your preferred days, dates and times. I aim to call back within twenty-four hours.

In the meantime, until we speak, I wish you all the very best with your journey.
