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 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.

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
