About me

I practise person-centred counselling, face to face, with individuals or couples of any age, background or experience.  I work with people of any gender, age, sexuality, minority ethnic culture, class or religion.  I am as happy listening to people who come with an immediate crisis as with people who are exploring subtle or long-standing issues. 

My starting point is respect for each person who comes to counselling: you are the expert on your own life, and the director of your own growth and healing.  How we work together depends upon your wishes and needs, matched with my experience and ability; I believe that for counselling/therapy to be effective, the relationship we form must be based upon mutual trust. 

Appointments generally last an hour or another duration you prefer, and take place in a quiet counselling room close to Kelvingrove Park.

Originally from London, I have been living in Glasgow for over 25 years.
