About me and my therapy practice

I am a Person Centred Therapist seeing clients in Glasgow City Centre and Online. 

I have spent the majority of my career within the helping profession and the past 10 years working in a variety of roles within health and social care. I have previous experience working as a therapist within the voluntary sector and the NHS.

I can help with a broad range of issues, including depression, anxiety, past trauma or low self esteem. I am also interested in helping clients with relationship or family issues who might struggle to resolve conflicts or set boundaries with other people. I have a particular interest in the work of Dr Elaine Aron and people who identify as Highly Sensitive.

My therapeutic work and experience in health and social care has allowed me to develop an understanding of the many varied factors that influence our health and wellbeing. As such, I treat my clients as individuals and help them find personal solutions to complex problems that work in the context of their own life.

Practice description

My work as a therapist is informed by both my academic training in Psychology and Psychotherapy as well as my own personal struggles in striving for good mental health. I try to combine my theoretical knowledge of what can help with my own personal understanding of how challenging life can be and how overwhelming our difficulties can often seem. I myself have benefited greatly from therapy and as a result have developed an ongoing, lifelong interest in psychological health and well being. I believe my own personal experience is key to my success as a therapist as it adds a level of understanding and respect for clients that cannot be gained through training alone.  

My first session

I am aware that it can be intimidating to seek help with sensitive issues, and meeting with a therapist can be very nerve wracking. In the first instance, you are welcome to contact me by phone for an informal chat about how we might work together or what to expect. During our first session I will not ask intrusive questions or pressure you to speak about anything you do not want to share. My aim is to help you get comfortable talking with me and figure out what you most need help with....and hopefully leave you feeling  better in the the process!  I offer the first session at a reduced fee of £20 to allow you to get to know me and decide if you think we could work well together.
