About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified psychodynamic counsellor with substantial experience of counselling adults and young people, having worked in health settings and voluntary organisations for over twenty years. I hold a Masters in Psychoanalytic Observation and Reflective Practice, a Diploma in Counselling and am also a fully qualified Occupational Therapist. I am currently employed part-time within NHS Mental Health Services, am a tutor on the Foundations of Human Relations and Counselling course with Human Development Scotland and run a small private practice.
My varied experience means that I am able to take an integrative approach to my work and that I have a solid understanding of the impact of a wide range of issues such as trauma, adverse childhood experiences and relationship difficulties on individual development.
If you are reading this information, then I suspect you (or someone you care about) are experiencing emotional difficulties, pain and or inner turmoil. You may be considering counselling as a way of moving forward. If this is the case, I can assure you of a confidential and secure relationship where you can tell your story and begin to explore and make sense of your thoughts and feelings, so that you feel less overwhelmed and more content with yourself, your life and your relationships.
I understand that making the initial step towards counselling can be an uncertain and anxiety provoking experience. Consequently, I am always happy to have an initial, no obligation discussion over the telephone to help you decide if counselling is right for you.
