About me

Experienced, Qualified and Professional

To help you decide if counselling is for you, I offer a free initial consultation, with no obligation to continue. You are unique and I offer bespoke counselling, tailor made for you, drawing on a wide range of therapeutic experience and interventions to help you reach your goals.

My experience includes NHS counselling, Lifelink, professional Counselling Centres and Private Practice.

I am qualified, insured and PVG-checked.

A Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).


You can be assured that confidentiality will be upheld to the highest standards both inside and and your anonymity protected outside the counselling room.

Specialist in Anxiety and Depression

I specialise in anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, grief and bereavement and have special postgraduate training in the latest research and interventions in these areas.


I practice both in East Kilbride and Strathaven. Each session lasts 60 minutes.

Initial Free Session

It is important that clients feel safe and comfortable with their Counsellor. I offer a free one hour consultation so you can see what I am like and how I work.

Training, qualifications & experience


I have worked for over 20 years in various counselling roles. These included NHS counselling services, which covered a broad range of issues. At Lifelink in Glasgow, I saw clients aged 12 upwards from GP and self referrals.  Clients could have mild depression, life limiting issues or be actively suicidal. I have also worked at Kerith Counselling and Agape in East Kilbride.
