Counselling services in Aberdeen & ABerdeenshire

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.

My aim is to provide professional and caring counselling services, supporting adults and children facing a wide range of mental health issues, including:

  • depression,
  • bereavement & loss,
  • anxiety,
  • work-related stress,
  • low self-esteem,
  • health related issues,
  • relationships,
  • trauma


Based in Aberdeenshire, I have been active as a counsellor since 2013. I find it so fulfilling being able to help people through difficult times in their life and this has motivated me to develop myself professionally as a person-centred counsellor. Initially I specialised in Bereavement and Loss counselling as a volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Scotland. Through my private practice and association with One-to-One (ACIS) and Mearns Counselling I am experienced in providing support to adults, children and young people dealing with a wide spectrum of issues.

I hold a diploma in person-centred counselling from Aberdeen University and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) adhering fully to their code of ethics. I am also registered with the PVG scheme for working with protected adults and children.

Making a start

The first step is often the hardest, it takes courage to admit that you might need some help. By taking that first step and reaching out to a counsellor, you are already on the road to self-improvement.

So if your life feels stuck and you want to get it moving again then give me a call or send me a message and we can start to explore the therapeutic possibilities which a counselling relationship can offer you.


During the current coronavirus situation I continue to provide counselling services but sessions are only available via telephone or video (Skype)
