I am a qualified, registered Counsellor and a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland (COSCA). I am a well experienced, Person-centred Counsellor and Lecturer who also teaches Trainee Student Counsellors. I have a wide range of experience of working in different settings, with a variety of people and situations. I am offering professional and confidential support for you to talk through any difficult thoughts and emotions that are confusing or that are causing you to feel anxious, low or depressed.
I believe my own life and work experiences have influenced my interest in counselling and psychology. Sometimes we all need someone to listen in a way that is caring, understanding and non-judgemental. Talking to a Counsellor who will listen to how you feel in a way that doesn't judge you but understands your struggles may be what you need right now.
Counselling can be long or short term depending on what you need. I can help you to;
- explore your present situation and this may help you feel more positive to change the things, that you feel need to change.
find a way through your difficulties, to get more out of life and enjoy better relationships, it might just change your life!
- Whether you are thinking of counselling for the first time or have already had counselling in the past, it can still feel daunting to reach out and ask for help. I understand this and how difficult choosing a Counsellor can be, it takes courage.
Committing to counselling is a big step and by making that first contact you have already begun to overcome some of your fears and are getting ready to start your counselling journey to help you, help yourself and find that Courage to Change.
