About me

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. If you have any questions before booking in for an initial session please feel free to contact me via email, phone or text and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

To view my availability and book an initial counselling session to explore how I can be of help please visit my website. Each counselling session costs £40 which I ask is paid for at the time of booking.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
