About me and my therapy practice

Let’s clear your mind together. People seek counselling for lots of different reasons and it can be daunting to take those first steps. The most important part is finding a counsellor who is right for you, someone you feel comfortable with and who you can relate to. I am a Person- Centred integrative counsellor. I offer a safe space to be listened to and will tailor our sessions to fit to your individual needs, requirements and your goals, by working together, in a comfortable non-judgmental space for you to think and talk about your concerns. I will work with you, at your pace, on the issues that you are struggling to make sense of or cope with. I will support you unconditionally on your counselling journey. I work online (zoom) and by telephone, making counselling accessible in whichever way suits you best. 

Practice description

I work as an integrative, person-centred counsellor in a non-directive way to help you through major life changes such as loss, bereavement, and relationship problems. As well as with anxiety, depression, inner conflict and low self-esteem.

Through my volunteer work with victim support Scotland and healed scars I have gained extensive experience, helping individuals through emotional abuse, trauma, domestic and sexual violence.

I have obtained a COSCA accredited Diploma in Counselling.

COSCA Certificate in Counselling.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapist (BACP).

Member of the person centred therapy Scotland.

Member of the National Counselling Society.

My first session

It can be really hard to take the first step, but if you feel that it is something that you want to do then I offer a free 15 minute initial telephone or Zoom consultation, so that you have an opportunity to meet me and for me to assess whether my area of expertise matches what you are looking for. During this informal conversation you will be able to ask me any questions you might have, and fully explore if you think you might feel counselling is right for you. I will be able to give you a bit more information about how it works and how counselling can be helpful.
