About me

I am a person-centered counsellor and supervisor, with a great passion for working in this way. I have been practicing for over 20 years.

I offer a safe, confidential and accepting relationship,, to enable clients to understand and have faith in themselves to work through whatever issues they may be experiencing. I have a great belief in the process and trust that when the therapeutic relationship is safely established shifts happen.

The initial consultation is to see if we could work together, really finding out about the issues you want to explore and how I work.

I do both long and short term work depending very much on what you feel you need.I usually see people once a week but we would discuss this when we meet.

As a supervisor I work in a flexible and creative way with both individuals and groups.I particularly enjoy working at relational depth.

I work in the centre of Dunfermline. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BACP-Credited Diploma in Counselling, a certificate in Supervision. I have worked as counsellor, supervisor and trainer at certificate and diploma in Counselling level, as well as being the Director of Safe to Say, a trauma-informed training consultancy focusing on how to respond to disclosures of childhood sexual abuse.

For many years, I was a group supervisor with a women and alcohol group. I have worked in a variety of settings with individuals and groups, these have included low self esteem, ME, relationship problems, bereavement, self-harm, and work related stress. My Supervision Practice is with both groups and individuals.

A lot of my work experience has been with survivors of childhood sexual abuse and loss which has been my main focus over the past ten years.

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.
