About me and my therapy practice

I provide a safe and accepting space for you to work through your difficulties and find a path forward.  I provide counselling face to face, online or outdoors.   As a masters-level pluralistically trained counsellor I offer a range of methods to help you explore your problems and work towards your goals.  Together we will aim to make best use of your existing strengths and resources to help you discover what matters to you and live your life more fully.

Practice description

I provide face to face and online therapy from St Andrews and The East Neuk of Fife.  I am a pluralistic counsellor working from a person centred foundation.  This means I aim to create a safe and welcoming space to develop a relationship built on trust which puts the client first.  We may make use of a range of tools from different therapeutic methods, including person centred, psychodynamic and CBT (especially Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), but this will always be done in collaboration with you.  As a writer I have a particular interest in using creative methods especially writing and journaling.  I am also interested in outdoor and nature therapy, walk and talk counselling and Compassion Focused Therapy.
