About me

My approach draws on life experience and a variety of trainings.   I offer a safe and confidential space to look at any feelings, thoughts, worries, concerns which are causing difficulties in your life and to explore other perspectives to enable a sense of better well-being

Exploring any difficulties together can enable you to feel more in control of your life, to make decisions and positive life choices and to understand any unhelpful patterns which may be getting in the way of enjoying your life. It is often extremely helpful to have someone outside your normal contacts, friends and family with whom to talk.

I work with all and many issues, including loss, low spirit, anxiety, fear, anger, low self confidence, relationships.   At the core of how I work is the integration of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of my client's well-being and the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client.

I believe there is a bright core within each of us which contains the potential to lead fulfilling, happy and peaceful lives, and my passion is helping another to reach into that inner sense of health, wellbeing and self mastery.

I also work with family constellations, which is an approach designed to make visible the entangled dynamics of a system and patterning which may have been handed down through the generations.

Training, qualifications & experience

My training over the past twenty years has included a three year Diploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis, a two year Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Buddhist Psychology, a Certificate in Systemic Constellations as well as a variety of additional post graduate workshops and seminars which have included EMDR and Sensorimotor Trauma trainings.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and have worked in Perth as a counsellor since 2005 with a further five years practice in London during the 1990s.

I also offer supervision by telephone or Zoom following training with the Centre for Supervision based in Findhorn and London.

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.
