Welcome to my website. Counselling in Aberdeenshire.

Sometimes it feels as if there is no one we can turn to when we experience difficulties in our life. This can leave us confused, angry, afraid, alone and helpless. It can make us feel isolated, anxious, depressed, with a lack of confidence and self belief. Talking to someone about your issues can help you through these difficult times. More importantly is when that person listens and hears you. As an experienced counsellor I will offer you a safe, confidential, non judgemental space in which to do this and I will support you to find the way forward that most meets your needs.

Areas of counselling I work with :

Abuse - Addiction - Anxiety - Bereavement - Bullying - Cancer - Carer's Issues - Child related Issues - Depression - Domestic Violence - Emotional Abuse - Historical Abuse - Loss - Lack of Confidence - Low Self Esteem - Menopause - Physical Abuse - Pet Bereavement - Relationships - Sexual Abuse - Self Harm - Stress - Students Issues - Work Related Issues

This list shows some of the areas and issues that counselling can help with but I understand just how difficult it is to try and label life’s problems. If your issue is not covered here, or you are in any doubt, please call me for a free and informal chat. You are under no obligation whatsoever and what you say is in the strictest confidence.

'Footprints' - Prior to the first session I offer a free, confidential telephone consultation which lasts approximately 20 - 30 minutes. It's important to find the right counsellor for you and this gives us the opportunity to talk to each other with no obligation, discuss what you're looking to gain from counselling and what I offer. You can then decide whether you wish to proceed with counselling.

'Pawprints' - You can have the choice of a one to one session with myself or having my therapy dog in the counselling room with us. Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) can be beneficial in many ways.

'Walk and Talk' - Weather permitting I offer the option of taking your counselling session outside. This can be Walk 'n' Talk or sitting in my garden.

See my pages on AAT and Walk and Talk for more information.

Fees are £40 per session and sessions will last an hour. Concessions are available for students.
