About me and my therapy practice

A Bit About Me:

I am 50 years of age and married with 2 daughters at university. I live in Ayr.

After having overcome some confusing and difficult times myself in terms of depression and anxiety I decided I needed to rethink what was important to me.

That has led me to learn more about Buddhist theory, mindfulness and meditation. I continue to work in social work which is important to me - I think such services are essential and help people who face profound day to day difficulties.

I decided to train as a counsellor to offer a more direct way of helping people. As cliched as it may sound I do learn something about my practice, myself and other people from every client I work with and really enjoy working as a counsellor. 

Practice description

During the current pandemic I am working online and by telephone. I am comfortable and confident doing this.  I will work via text, phone or zoom. 

I am a person centred therapist who is comfortable working with a wide variety of issues. I am also experienced in developing and helping in terms of meditation, mindfulness and other Buddhist concepts.
