About me and my therapy practice

You may experience distressing, difficult and painful feelings, or perhaps would like to talk something through and feel heard and understood, or change or develop aspects of your life. I can provide a safe place to talk, tailored to your needs. Currently providing an evening service in Central Aberdeen, I am a fully qualified and experienced, Integrative and Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I have experience in a wide range of life issues, as well as experience in the commercial world and understand how your job can affect your well-being and relationships.

Talking therapies that provide an enriched environment, through an attuned therapeutic relationship with me, can bring about permanent, positive changes through a new way of being or thinking. I offer a safe place for you to explore the things that are important to you, helping you to develop insights that can help you manage your life.

Your individuality around your life story and what you may want from counselling is unique to you. My integrative training means I can work with you in a way that is best for you. We can find out together if solution-focused brief therapy, short-term counselling or longer-term in-depth therapy would suit you. I am also a Humanistic therapist and as such, focus on self-development, growth and personal responsibility, to help you recognise your strengths, creativity and your choices for your life.
