I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor from Strathclyde University in 2000. Since then I have provided support and counselling to a variety of clients in the NHS, privately and within charities. I became a counsellor because I enjoy helping and supporting people. I offer a space where clients feel heard, supported and fully accepted as they are.
There are times when it is beneficial to speak to someone removed from your current situation, away from the ‘noise’ of everyday life, I provide the opportunity to explore your thoughts and emotions without judgement. My role is to enable you to look within and find answers and self acceptance.
I currently run my private practice online and by telephone counselling. Face to face counselling can be arranged if this is preferred. I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation for you to discuss what you would be looking for in counselling and to ask me any questions you have about therapy.

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.
