Due to Covid crisis I am offering online therapy. There are times in all our life's when we face uncertainty and difficulties. Starting Counselling could feel daunting at the thought of speaking to a stranger about your fears and painful experiences. Taking that leap of faith and making the call, can be the hardest step.
Do you recognise something is troubling you, feel a need for change but do not know where to start? You have made the first step towards change if you are reading this page.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association Of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work by the code of ethics and professional standards for my practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling from the University Of Strathclyde. I continued to enhance my skills by attending various CPD courses for example Trauma, Suicide, Grief and Couple Counselling.
I have a considerable amount of experience in the voluntary sector, EAP and working in various locations in occupational health counselling. I currently work in private practice from a consulting room in the village of East Kilbride conveniently close to the train station and other public transport. There is also parking within and opposite the building.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

What can I offer you?
I aim to offer a safe, confidential ,warm and accepting environment that will enable you to feel comfortable to explore whatever your issue is at a pace that feels safe for you. Through our counselling sessions I hope that we can make sense of your issue and work towards change.
Person Centred Counselling focus is on the working relationship between the client and the therapist. The therapist will be client lead and believes fully that the client has the capacity for change within themselves.
