About me and my therapy practice

Do you struggle with relationships in your life? You may be tired of trying to meet other people's expectations of you. Or perhaps you are feeling let down, or hurt by people who can't or won't support you when you need it. Maybe you are feeling like a burden and finding yourself withdrawing from those close to you. Oftentimes, withdrawing from loved ones is painful. Substances (eg. alcohol, drugs), certain behaviours (eg. self-harming) or how we respond to food and our body help to soothe or fill the void. In our work together, we can explore and untangle your relationship with substance or behaviours.

This can take the form of an exploration of current and historic issues or by looking at the relationship you have with yourself. By working in a person-centred, feminist and trauma-informed way, you will have the space to process your experiences at your own pace.

Practice description

I offer therapy online (video, phone calls, emails or instant messaging) and outdoors. There are a lot of benefits from being outside and adding movement to your sessions. Due to the current global pandemic and unsuitable premises, I won’t be able to see clients from my office in the east end of Glasgow until late Autumn 2021.

My first session

During our first session together, we will go through the contract between the two of us which will cover fees, payments, cancellations and confidentiality. This won't take more than 5-10 minutes. For the rest of the session, you will have an opportunity to share with me what brought you to therapy, what your goals are and what feels relevant to you to add.

Supervisor - Glasgow

Sessions from £55.00

Features

About me and my therapy practice

I work from a person-centred perspective and I offer individual and group supervision

In supervision together, there is space for you to explore:

  • what resources and style of counselling you have that make you you
  • how client work is impacting you and your processes and what is getting in the way for you to be present.
  • stuckness and ambivalence.
  • issues around power, privilege and oppression


Practice description

I have experience working with

  • complex trauma
  • substance/alcohol use
  • voice-hearing and dissociation.

If you would like to discuss with me one specific client whose experiences fall within my areas of specialisation, I offer ad hoc supervision sessions on any of those areas of work.

I am an outdoor therapist and I trained with the wilderness foundations. I offer workshops for practitioners who would like to bring their practice outdoors. I also facilitate group supervision for counsellors who work outdoors. 

My first session

If you would like to know more, you can book a 30-minute consultation free of charge (zoom or phone call).
