I am an slowly aging punk from rural Scotland. Believe me when I say I never expected to find my way into counselling, or had any concept of Integrative Therapy years back .
I offer an service that's all about respect and focusing on your issues. I believe in looking at the problem and tackling it head on and I offer what I would call a 'no bullshit' approach; I don't believe in fate or destiny, I believe that you are looking for a counsellor because you need help tackling an issue or blockage in your life; be who you are, no airs and graces. LGTBQ+ Allied.
I work online via zoom, over the phone or face-to-face if you live within the Lanark area. My personal approach to Integrative Therapy utilises recognised techniques from CBT and Person Centred Therapy to deliver a tailored approach for you. I am well trained in issues relating to anxiety and anger as well as a multitude of other areas. After initial exploration in the counselling process I believe in looking at action planning and developing solutions related to your needs.
I am a fully qualified, BACP registered counsellor and lecturer in studies of counselling who has been tested for competency, adheres to an ethical framework and is routinely engaged with my own supervision to ensure the effectiveness of my practice.
If my approach appeals to you by all means get in touch, I deliver free consultations with no obligation to continue should you feel I am not the counsellor for you.
