About me

I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor in 2010 and worked for several years as a Grief Counsellor. I strive to be an open, friendly and supportive person and can provide appointments face to face in Elgin, online sessions via video call or over the phone and offer appointment times during the day or in the evenings.

I offer an approach which allows you to be able to explore any issues currently troubling you, with your experience of life being the focus of the sessions. Life is great when it is going well but sometimes things come up that can throw us off guard and leave us feeling vulnerable, or just not understanding fully what is going on for us. I provide a space for you to examine what is troubling you and explore these with me, in a non judgemental way and without emotional complications or attachments, which are often found when talking to family and friends. It can give you just a moment to have some breathing space and explore what's going on. 

There are no subjects off limits and nothing is seen as too big or small. If it's causing you issue then we can look at that in a way that works for you. The sessions are led solely by you and not directed by me and my hope is of helping you to increase your awareness and understand your own workings. From this you can gain more insight into what you can do about it or to just feel more in control with greater understanding.

Counselling allows space for any issue to be explored. If something is bothering you, then talk to me and we can see if we can help you to find a new perspective on it and hopefully bring you some peace. Talking to me can help settle those constant, niggling thoughts and free you from persistent worries and stresses.

Member organisations


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.
