About me

Counselling is a chance to work on things that may make your life better. As a qualified counsellor with over 20 years of experience I can create a safe environment and walk alongside you whilst you untangle your problems and work through issues that are important to your growth and developement.  

I am aware that different things work for different people at different times and our first appointment will be an opportunity to explore what you want from your sessions and how I can help you achieve your goals of therapy. From this initial appointment we can look at ways forward and also decide the times and frequency of appointments

By creating a therapeutic relationship allows me to offer counselling for most issues that present but I also have extensive experience of working with those presenting with issues relating to addiction (drugs, alcohol, gambling or food/eating disorders). I can also offer counselling to the families of people who are addicted.

I offer a counselling service in Keith, Moray and Rosemount Viaduct, Aberdeen.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

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.

I am happy to offer both telephone and online counselling
