About me and my therapy practice

I am trained and work as a person centred counsellor and Supervisor in a confidential, relaxed and safe environment in the Elgin and Fochabers area of Moray. I am a Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow their strict ethical codes of good practice.

I offer confidential, face to face, person centred counselling which is a different experience for each client as we are all unique individuals. My aim is to accept you as you are, to hear and understand you, and enter into a therapeutic relationship that is real and genuine in which I can help you to identify your issues and resolutions. I offer a safe place to explore feelings and emotions in a non-judgmental setting.

Due to Covid-19 and the current necessary restrictions we are all facing, I wish to assure you that your safety and wellbeing is paramount to me and I have strict measures in place to ensure the safety of us both are being met at all times.
