About me

I am a trained psychodynamic counsellor. I have experience in working with clients with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, LGBT+ and borderline personality and obsessive compulsive disorders. I have a particular interest in how attachment styles are replayed in our everyday relationships. I offer a warm, supportive and non-judgemental service. I offer both person-to-person and online counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with Human Development Scotland (Glasgow) and received their Diploma in Human Relations & Counselling on completion.  I have studied psychology extensively and hold a postgraduate Diploma in Psychology (with distinction) and BSc in Psychology with Counselling (1st Class Honours).  I have also completed a post-qualifying certificate in counselling children, adolescents, young people and families. 

Member organisations

BACP

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.
