About me and my therapy practice
Life can sometimes feel unbearable, but it can also feel joyous. I work in partnership with you to discover, or rediscover, what is wonderful about life.
I am friendly and approachable and really want to hear about what's troubling you so we can work out together how things can change for you.
I am happy to work with whatever is troubling you. I have previously been able to help people who have experienced many difficulties, including people who have experienced or are experiencing sexual, emotional or physical abuse (including childhood abuse), trauma (including PTSD and dissociative symptoms), eating disorders, addiction, bereavement, long term illness, anxiety, depression, spiritual crisis, family and relationship problems, self-harming, suicidal thoughts and low self-esteem
Please do get in touch if you wish to enquire further - absolutely no strings attached - it is often good to sound out a few therapists before deciding which one fits best.
I am trained in person-centred therapy (PGDip - University of Aberdeen) but work in a very integrative way, finding out collaboratively what works best for you.
I am also a trained yoga teacher (BWY - Level 4 diploma (500-hour)) focussing on teaching mindfulness, meditation and relaxation. I also have training in CBT and nutrition (PGDip - University of Aberdeen). Having worked as a scientist for many years (I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Fellow of the Institute of Food Science and Technology), I can also be very solution focussed, if that is right for you.
