About me and my therapy practice

*I'm currently delivering therapy "face to face" via online session only at this time of the UK Covid-19 lockdown*

Hi, thanks for stopping by my profile and for taking the first, possibly daunting, steps to find a person-centred therapist.

I'm Glasgow and East Kilbride based, PVG registered and a qualified Person-Centred counsellor/psychotherapist, school consellor, psychologist and complementary therapist with nearly twenty years of experience in these combined therapies.

How I work:

Holding all that you bring in a safe, therapeutic space will enable you to explore and make sense of your difficulties, problems and experiences. I offer an accepting, held space and I will work with you as the expert in your own life.

Our time together will be a space of celebration and support as well. Therapy can be very hard, emotional work at times and so we’ll definitely be celebrating the good bits in your life too, not just acknowledging the struggles.

My Experience and Interests:

My experience is in a wide range of presenting problems but I have a particular interest in childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences, perinatal (before baby) and postnatal (after baby) and family issues, boarding school life as well as working with individual clients and couples. I also run DBT mindfulness sessions for small groups.

Having lived and been schooled abroad and with an ongoing love for travel, I enjoy and welcome the rich diversity that different cultures and customs brings. I equally know well the hardship and difficulties that not feeling included and/or welcomed can also bring from living in small towns and I offer the safe, non-judgemental space to talk about this should it or other life issues be negatively affecting your life.

What I offer:

We can work together with face-to-face short and long-term therapy sessions in Glasgow city centre and/or in East Kilbride (Thursdays)
