About me and my therapy practice

I can assure a non- judgmental, warm, compassionate, safe and professional approach, working at your pace in a collaborative way, this creates the basis of a working relationship. Here trust can grow and thoughts and feelings can be found, expressed and explored. This forms a ground in exploring relationships and emotions past and present My training has been in Psychodynamic counselling which takes into account the perspective of the past and how early experiences and attachment relationships can be carried unconsciously throughout life, creating patterns which cause difficulty with present emotions and relationships. It is only through becoming aware of these that real change can begin to be made. If needed I can offer an initial 30 minute consultation phone call where we can explore the possibility of working together. If we decide to work together I ask for an initial commitment of six sessions. I believe it’s important that counselling is accessible to all as much as possible - If needed I can offer reduced rates. As standard minimum 24 hrs. notice is required in cancelling sessions otherwise the session fee would be chargeable. My background previous to counselling has been in Art Therapy (qualified in 1988) and working for nearly 30 years with adults of all ages from different cultures and social backgrounds in the communities of London and Glasgow. This has included one to one support, group work and also supporting students in education. I also work as a trainer in counselling in Glasgow  and Edinburgh.
