Covid 19 Update - I am currently offering on line therapy via video link.

Worry, anxiety and even despair at times during this time is a natural response

You are not alone - there are others who want to help

It is important to understand how you feel - acknowledge the feelings

Access support - it is ok to ask for help

Self care - look after yourself limit exposure to news / walk / breath

About me and my therapy practice

I am a Psychodynamic Therapist qualified to masters level and accredited with twenty five years experience, offering psychotherapy to adults, children, adolescents and families. I use rooms in Giffnock at the rear of a busy community church building with free parking and good transport links. I feel that anyone can experience distress and find themselves struggling. I offer my services as a space to think together, as a way to try and make sense of the emotions and to better manage some of the feelings.

The aim of therapy in my mind is often to try and make peace with our pasts, to make sense of our early experiences in order to live fully and authentically in the present. I explore the place of the problem in relation to the past as well as present, in a relational approach that means we enter into a joint exploration of the issue. I work with a variety of issues and divide my time between clinics for the NHS & social work and private practice. Some of my practice is spent offering therapy to parents struggling with their child’s behaviour or with the challenges of adolescence.

I am fully qualified with a Masters in Psychoanalytic Therapeutic work with Children and Young People with Human Development Scotland and The University of Strathclyde. A Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Therapy with Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy, London and I have also completed levels 1 & 2 of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy.

I am a full member of APPCIOS and a mentor for the psychodynamic therapists in this organisation. I am also a consultant for organisations who want to use psychodynamic thinking to explore institutional dynamics. I am also an associate member of the charity Trapeze psychology which provides a platform for partnership working between psychologists and other therapists, community groups and the voluntary and statutory sectors. 


Practice description


My practice is relational in essence which means that the therapeutic relationship itself is part of the process of healing.  We can learn through the live relationship in the room and through reflection on the unconscious aspects of the relationship. 

I work in a explorative way with a clearly defined set of goals.  We measure our progress against these goals and set a course.   

I do think it’s important to get a good fit with your therapist so feel free to come and meet me for an initial exploration of the issue and see how it feels to talk. Email me at vamoh@hotmail.co.uk, call or text 0770 2265471. I am happy to talk through your enquiry first over the phone.


My first session

After a chat over the phone or a few emails if we feel we might work well together we then set a date for an initial assessment, this can be the first session or the first few, it is where we set out the job of work to be done.  

We establish the problem.

The goals you wish to achieve.

Then set a treatment plan.

This process helps us to produce a map we can take which means we both have an understanding of the problem and an idea of what it is that has caused the problem and what it is that  needs to do to resolve the issue and heal.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with over 25 years experience of offering therapy within mental health services. I offer supervision to counsellors, mentors, coaches, social workers, health professionals and anyone who is engaged in human encounters.  I  provide therapeutic supervision to people who would like a space to think about their work within a systems-psychoanalytic framework based on the Tavistock consultation model.

The systems psychodynamic approach recognizes the value of a space in which one can reflect on  work and practice, continue to develop and deepen learning and practice. Supervision is  increasingly recognised by practitioners and organisations as an ethical part of professional practice and CPD for many practitioners.

I currently offer supervision within a one to one or group setting with experienced practitioners, online and face to face.  Groups are kept small enough so that all participants have an opportunity to present their current work and to benefit from the input of their group colleagues.

Please do contact me for more information about supervision. 


Practice description

With regard to supervision I encourage the supervisee to lead the session bringing their work in whichever way they feel it is right for them.  This can be a process recording, or a theme across sessions or a theme they have identified that has emerged from their own reflections.  

I am happy to explore relevant theory in relation to practice and I encourage the development of formulations and hypothesis to provide focus and a framework for the work.  

As with a psychodynamic model of therapy in supervision I remain open and curious about the unconscious processes as they occur for the supervisee in the work, in our relationship and live in the session.
