About me and my therapy practice

I have a particular interest in working with people with low self-esteem, that struggle in their relationships – unsure about when it’s okay to say no to requests from people, and fearful of the potential consequences. This can be particularly acute for people in recovery from addiction – it can be excruciating to navigate feelings and relationships, without using the addictive substance/behaviour to numb out the pain.

I know that I’m not a fixer – I can’t fix other people. But I absolutely believe people don’t need fixing. In my experience, we generally need a bit of time and space to air our feelings, our stuckness, our chaotic inner experiences with all their pain and uncertainty. I can sit with that pain and uncertainty, gently explore it with you, and support you to (re)discover your inner values and self-worth.

I see clients in Glasgow City Centre.  Please call, text or email me to arrange an appointment.  

I offer a first online session for free so you can get a sense of whether I might be a good fit for you.   


My first session

Our first session is for you to get a feel for whether we could work together.   I believe it's important to "shop around" to make sure you choose a therapist that feels right for you.  Therefore, when I have availability for new clients, I offer a first online session for free.  

If online doesn't appeal to you, then I may offer to meet with you in my consultation room in Glasgow city centre, or if you'd prefer to meet outdoors, I may offer to meet with you in a park in or near the city centre.  First appointments face to face (indoors or outdoors) are £20 to cover my overheads.  This is payable in advance.
