Coronavirus Update


As lockdown restrictions are lifted I'm pleased to say I will once again be able to offer face to face sessions in Glasgow and Shotts. Both venues have; been HSE risk assessed, additional hygiene measures in place and observe social distancing. To reduce the possibility of cross contamination clients are encouraged to bring their own refreshment if required. I will also continue to offer remote sessions by telephone or zoom video conferencing.


North Lanarkshire Council are operating a phased reopening of their venues, I will keep you up to date with any further developments. Hope to see you all at a class soon.

Individual Counselling

My passion for counselling adults and young people with a range of presenting issues comes from the challenges I have faced in life and learning to manage and overcome difficult situations.

I have consulting rooms in Shotts and Glasgow and welcome referrals from EAP providers, I also offer a reduced fee for trainee counsellors that require personal therapy.

Home. family

Family Counselling

Family counselling can be a useful place to explore and better understand family dynamics and behaviours. There are many ways differences between adults and children within your family can show up. Time in family therapy can be a safe place to explore and identify these differences and begin the process of working together to find an appropriate solution.

I can offer family counselling appointments in Glasgow, in order to satisfy social distancing guidelines I will be unable to offer family therapy sessions from Shotts until the current guidelines change.

Home. adult counselling


I work with supervisees from voluntary and statutory organisations as well those in private practice to support and expand their edge of awareness as a professional counsellor or practitioner.

I encourage and support reflection and development around; legal issues, safeguarding, theoretical knowledge, ethical dilemmas and development of self awareness.

I offer clinical supervision in Glasgow and Shotts to practitioners from all modalities and offer a reduced rate for trainees that require supervision.

Home. yoga 2

Beginner/Intermediate Yoga Class

Venue: Shotts Community Education Centre, Kirk Road, ML7 5ET

Day: Wednesday

Time: 6.30pm

Cost: 8

My yoga classes are aimed at beginner/intermediate students and follow the principles of Hatha yoga with the focus of Iyengar teachings. Each class uses precision of placement combined with consistent fluid movement and conscious breath to create a vinyasa flow sequence.

I teach yoga to support physical and mental well being, classes encourage the development balance, strength and flexibility while using conscious breath to connect to and bring balance between the body and mind.

Practising yoga regularly can help support a range of physical and mental health issues, I hope to see you at a class soon.

Home. relaxation group


I believe that the relationships and connections we have with family, work and our community can contribute to positive physical and mental health.

For this reason I am keen to connect with counsellors/supervisors and yoga teachers that have a shared interest in supporting local people's health and wellbeing and developing local communities across Lanarkshire.
