What type of counselling do I offer?
My approach is Person Centred which means that I will listen very carefully to you, offer you unconditional support, value your experience and use that as the basis of all our work. I will work flexibly in an integrated way to suit your needs.
Before retraining as a counsellor/therapist and moving to Glasgow, I lived on the Isle of Mull for 25 years. Whilst there, I became immersed in the community. I taught music in schools, ran my own bed and breakfast and self catering business, brought up my daughter, and latterly became a business manager of a social enterprise. I was born and brought up in England and at 19 studied performance at a London Music College and then went on to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. I love living in Scotland and I am very happy with my recent move to Glasgow where I am enjoying re-engaging with city life.
