Counselling Therapy

 

Welcome to my counselling website,

at certain times in our lives we seek out support in various ways.  It might be you are in need of time to discuss, reflect and talk about issues you are having.  Searching for this in the form of a talking therapy.  Feel free to see what I offer in psychodynamic counselling therapy and get in touch.  

 

Illustrated here are some of the photographs I have taken in the beautiful setting of Argyll, Scotland.   The peaceful  reflective, clear waters and deep colours of the hills, beaches and forests can bring a connection to how we are feeling.  I look forward to hearing from you.

About

My Background

I am based in the pretty west coast of Scotland sea-side town of Dunoon.  As a Counsellor I have a post graduate diploma awarded from Human Development Scotland and Robert Gordon University.  My background is that I am a qualified nurse with 25 years experience primarily within a variety of NHS primary and secondary care settings and have lived in a number of locations in the UK and abroad.  I obtained my nursing degree with honours and have studied within the nursing field extensively obtaining primary and critical care skills.  My nursing experiences within the NHS have led me to pursue a qualification in counselling and psychotherapy.  I have seen first hand the value of talking therapies and its importance in the lives of individuals.

I have achieved my counselling and psychotherapy qualifications whilst living and working within my home country of Scotland.  My counselling certificate year at Strathclyde University inspired me to carry on to qualify as registered counsellor and I have specialised in a psychodynamic approach. 

 

I have experience of volunteer counselling with the charities of Argyll and Bute Rape Crisis (ABRC) and the Wynd Centre with face to face, zoom and telephone counselling.  Importantly, I am a member and adhere to the ethical principles of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Whilst working with ABRC, I have obtained Carolyn Springs training in trauma work. The approach I have is empathic, non-judgmental, and collaborative. 

Living in this beautiful area I am able to make the most of walks, amateur photography, swimming and have an interest in complimentary therapies.  These are all very relaxing and grounding for me.
