There are times when our lives seem out of control and we can’t see a way forward. We can feel alone, isolated and helpless. Counselling may provide the support you need to get through this.
What to expect
Counselling gives you the opportunity to share what is on your mind and to explore your feelings of distress or low mood. We do not tend to give advice, rather we listen to you and support you in making the changes you need to deal with whatever issues you are facing. Talking in confidence to someone who is completely independent and non-judgmental can let you see things from a different perspective.
Meeting your needs
Our counselling sessions are all about you. Together, in complete confidence, we will learn about what’s going on for you, discover what is holding you back and try to find a way for you to move forward at your own pace.
“You have helped me to look at things in a different way and this has
made such a huge improvement in my life for which I am very grateful”

As warm, caring and empathic counsellors we will try to make sure that you feel comfortable to set the agenda and are free to explore the things that are of most importance to you. Building and maintaining a trusting relationship is an essential part of the therapeutic journey and central to how we will work together through the various stages.

I have been active as a counsellor since 2013. Initially I specialised in Bereavement & Loss counselling as a volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Scotland. Through my private practice and association with One-to-One and Mearns Counselling I am experienced in providing support to both adults and children dealing with a wide spectrum of issues. I hold a diploma in person-centred counselling from Aberdeen University. I am also registered with the PVG scheme for working with protected adults and children.
I have experience in working with a diverse group of clients going through a wide range of issues and concerns. The focus is on working at a rate and level that feels appropriate for the individual. I have been particularly involved in supporting people who have found themselves in a caring role and the impact that may have had on lifestyle and identity. I completed my Post Graduate Diploma in Person Centered Counselling at Aberdeen University and I am registered with the PVG scheme for working with vulnerable adults and children
