About Me

Having gained a Bachelor of Education and a Certificate and Qualification in Social Work, as a primary / secondary teacher I taught abroad for a few years before practising as a social worker in Scotland. In 1996 I gained a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling and set up a private practice as a counsellor soon after.I am trained in a number of approaches with an emphasis on the person-centred style of working. I am a member of Person-Centered Therapy, Scotland. Since then I have become a qualified Supervisor and a BACP and COSCA Accredited Counsellor and a COSCA accredited trainer.

My History
I have built up a considerable private practice and also work for several Employee Assistance Programmes in the Voluntary and Corporate sectors both as a Supervisor and a Counsellor.
