Announcement icon During this challenging time more than ever you might need to talk. We can still do this by online video Skype, zoom, WhatsApp or phone.
Here, you can work on whatever issues may be troubling you from anxiety and depression, to relationship problems, trauma, low self-esteem, and more. I offer highly-focused brief counselling or long-term psychotherapy, as required. I am able to provide sessions to adults and young people. I am a trained relationship counsellor and have vast experience of working with children, young people and the LGBTQ community.
I hold qualifications in psychology, drug and alcohol counselling, Integrative Relationship and individual Counselling. I have worked meticulously with families, young people and mental health issues such as complex trauma. I am a registered counsellor and accredited trainer with COSCA (Scotland’s professional body for Counselling and Psychotherapy)
A good counsellor has training and knowledge of working with specific types of problems. However this itself, this is not enough. Your specific life challenges have shaped and affected you differently from everyone else. You are a completely unique, individual and I want to work with you as such and value your journey.
