About me and my therapy practice

I can help you with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, stress, suicidal thoughts and relationship issues, to name but a few. I am a passionate believer in the 'Person Centred Approach' and the positive effect this type of counselling can have on a person. Having a safe space to talk about yourself and your life, where no judgement is made, will enable you to find your way back to a more positive way of being. Working as a 'Person Centred' counsellor, enables me to offer you a therapeutic relationship which encourages empowerment and growth to help you begin to trust in yourself, learn about who you are and how you are in the world and why you have experienced such difficulties in your life. Occasionally I might work with you in a more 'integrative' way but will always ground this work in the values of the 'Person Centred Approach'. As well as being a counsellor, I am also a qualified Counselling Supervisor and work as a Trainer with Glasgow Clyde College.

About me and my therapy practice

I'm qualified to offer supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists and students. I work from a quiet private space in both south Edinburgh and Carluke. I'm a passionate advocate of the Person Centred Approach and have my practice firmly rooted in the 'core conditions'. I do occasionally work in a more 'integrative' way, depending on my clients needs but always from a 'Person Centred' foundation. I work as a tutor with Glasgow Clyde College and have taught on the 'HND in Counselling' course as well as having taught Unison staff on the 'Introduction to Counselling' course. I have written a bespoke training course for SAMH which I also deliver. I'm a warm friendly and approachable person and really enjoy connecting and building relationships. It's important to feel you've found a supervisor who you can work with, so if you want to have an informal chat or need more info, please give me a call or drop me a line. The first session is free of charge, then £40 per hour.
