Given the current Covid-19 pandemic and resulting guidelines laid out by the Scottish and UK governments, my counselling service is now also available via Skype, an online platform allowing for free voice/video calls.
Face to face sessions are being conducted in strict adherence to all safety measures stipulated by the Scottish government as well as my professional body, BACP. Further details of these measures can be provided on request.
I know that choosing a therapist can be a daunting task. I therefore offer a 30 minute information session at a reduced fee for anyone who wishes to find out more about how I work and to decide if counselling is right for them. It is vital that both client and counsellor feel that there is potential for a good working relationship to be forged and this is best observed in a face to face or online meeting.
Full counselling sessions last 50 minutes and are usually offered at the same day and time every week.
I reserve a limited number of concession spaces for clients who are in need of counselling but would struggle to pay the full fee – students, those on a low income or those who are unemployed.
Once we have chosen to work together, I suggest an initial contract of up to 6 sessions before deciding whether short or long term work is most suitable.
Information Session (30 minutes) – £25
Counselling Session (50 minutes) – £50 (£35 concession)

It is imperative that clients feel themselves to be active participants in the therapeutic process and to work in collaboration with their therapist. I encourage all my clients to freely express any concerns or problems they may have in relation to our work together or to me as a practitioner. This can often be a useful opportunity to deepen the relationship and enhance the honest communication between client and counsellor.
In order to empower my clients in this regard, I urge them to acquaint themselves with BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. Should they consider that I have not lived up to these standards, I would sincerely wish that we could work with the issues within the therapeutic relationship. Where that isn’t possible or where the client wishes to take their concerns further they can find information on how to lodge a complaint in BACP’s Professional Conduct Procedure
