I am a counsellor currently residing in Stirling, Scotland. I am currently working via Zoom video call, which means I am available to work with individuals both within Stirling and elsewhere in the United Kingdom. I am a person-centred counsellor, which means I will aim to sit alongside you to discuss your life, the difficulties you may be facing, and work together to figure out what steps you would like to take.
I have experience working therapeutically with adults, children and young people in the NHS, education settings and in private practice. Before qualifying as a counsellor I worked as a support worker in several different roles supporting individual's mental health difficulties. I have also previously worked with members of the LGBTQ+ community.
I have experience of working with feelings of anxiety, depression and low mood, loss and traumatic experiences. We will work together to go at your pace to explore the thoughts, feelings and circumstances that bring you to counselling.
Counselling can be a valuable space to get to know yourself, and how you respond to the world and those around you. I have been a client in therapy myself and understand that it can be daunting to initially reach out for support. Therapy for me allowed me to discover so much more about my self, my feelings and my relationships.
It is important to me that you find the right counsellor for you. I offer an initial 20 minute consultation in which we can talk and you can ask any questions you might have about counselling. You can then decide if you would like to work with me and we can arrange a time for our first session together that suits you.
To view my availability and book in for an initial phone call or counselling session please visit my website. An initial phone consultation is free. Each counselling session costs £40 which I ask is paid for at the time of booking.

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.
