My current favourite quote is "You are not Lazy, unmotivated, or stuck. After years of living your life in survival mode, you are exhausted. There is a difference" - Nahela Homer. It really resonates with me because therapy should be about helping you to shift perspective from that critical inner voice that tears you down and makes you feel distress (whether it's shame, guilt, anxiety, depression or anger), into a more balanced and compassionate perspective. You deserve to live a life you love, to work towards being who you want to be, or to do the things you want without fear or shame holding you back.

Sexuality is multidimensional that engages all areas of life: mental, emotional, physical and social. Understanding the psychology and the culture through which sexuality is experienced is integral to finding well being and happiness. Shame, guilt, anxiety, as well as other psychological or medical conditions, can profoundly affect how we experience sexuality and deeply impact or attach itself to the complexities of our personal history and life experiences.

Life is challenging and I am here to help you cope with those challenges. Hi! I’m Morag and I am a warm and empathic Counselling Psychologist who is very passionate about helping people overcome their difficulties and improve their quality of life. I have over 17 years' of experience of offering therapy to people with a wide range of difficulties. I value the importance of the therapy relationship and I teach strategies to facilitate change.
I'm a clinical psychologist who works with people who are hoping to cope better with strong moods such as sadness, low mood or depression, anger or if feeling constantly worried, nervous or anxious. Working together we will find out how this has developed and why it hasn't gone away. In this way we can gain an understanding of the issue and develop skills and strategies to cope better right now, and to manage and/or prevent these issues from returning in the future.
Clients present with difficult life circumstances, affecting them in the present or the past, rippling into the connection with themselves and their connection with the world, the persons in their life and social structures such as school or work. Low self esteem, fear, worry, sadness or anger are just some of the strong forces that effect people. Clients can feel overwhelmed or unsure about where to begin. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space that gently explores these forces, working towards self-directed goals to improve self connection, interpersonal relationships and the interplay with their surrounding social structures.
I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds, and pride myself on providing a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space. I am passionate about helping people to build on their individual strengths and develop new skills. If you are hoping to experience a greater quality of life, find some direction, or achieve your goals, it would be a privilege for me to offer you guidance and support.
Each person's experience is unique. You might be struggling with past hurts, experiencing challenging thoughts, have feelings of self-sabotage or that no matter what you do, you end up in the same relationships and repeating the same patterns. The answers lie within you and I can help you uncover them. I bring non-judgemental acceptance, belief in your resilience, and compassion to the journey that we embark on together. I will support you to find the patterns and behaviours in your life that no longer serve you.
One of the hardest things about going through difficult times is the feeling of isolation that can arise. On the outside you may look like you have things ‘together’, but on the inside you feel differently. You may be feeling tired, anxious and flat. You’re demanding or hard on yourself, finding yourself over-thinking everything and feel like you can’t switch off. If this sounds like you, know that you are not alone and you can reach out today. I understand it can be a daunting process to decide to proceed with therapy. It is a sign of strength to be able to reach out and to say ‘I am not okay’.
Hi there! I work closely with clients to explore how their early attachment experiences impact their current relationship to themself and others. I help clients break negative patterns by creating emotional safety to explore the roots of their pain.
