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.

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.
