I am a person-centred counsellor living and working in Musselburgh. I believe that through a non-judgemental, honest and respectful relationship in counselling, we can begin to see glimpses of our own true value, difficult thoughts and feelings can become clearer, we can get in touch with our own core values, and we can regain control of ourselves and our lives. I will treat you, and respond to you in counselling, as a unique individual.
I have specific experience working with loss and bereavement, trauma as a result of adverse childhood experiences, and a range of other areas. I aim to work with the whole person; not define you by your present challenges.
I work with Adults, and can offer counselling either in person, by video call, or telephone. I can offer regular, weekly sessions, but will be flexible to support your individual needs and requirements.

- BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
