About me

I offer clients a confidential secure space in which to confront, change, or channel feelings of confusion, grief, rage or depression. I encourage clients to find their own answers within themselves.

If you are looking for peace, fulfillment  a different way of looking at life or an acceptance of the way things are counselling may well be able to assist you in your search.

I am now retired from full time employment and enjoy teaching yoga, gardening and training my dog Sula.

Training, qualifications & experience

I initially trained with Scottish Council of Alcohol in 1993 going on to gain my certificate in 1995 with Stathclyde University. I obtained my Diploma in 2003 through Argyll College - Interface Edinburgh. 2015 saw me gain a COSCA accredited qualification in Supervision. Relationship Certificate 2016

I have been a practicing counsellor for 20 years gaining experience with the Scottish Council of Alcohol, Lorn Counselling Service and latterly with North Argyll Carers Centre.

I was Manager of the Carers Centre for 14 years gaining experience in assisting people with loss of so many things such as freedom, health, finance, the list is endless. I am therefore experienced working with the many difficulties and challenges surrounding loss or transition.

I have my own private practice which I run from my home. Home visits can be arranged for those who are unable to travel.

My special interest is in bereavement counselling in its broadest definition. In fact I would say I have a special interest in people.
