I am a BACP Registered and experienced psychodynamic counsellor.
Sometimes we can feel stuck in life, and find ourselves caught in a cycle of unhelpful behaviour patterns or ways of relating to ourselves and others. We may feel conflicted,anxious sad or depressed but don't know why. We want to understand ourselves better and to be understood by others. We want to achieve inner peace but we don’t know how to, or feel we have the capacity to make changes or achieve lasting healing.

The main therapeutic modalities I draw upon are psychodynamic psychotherapy, acceptance commitment therapy, schema therapy and MBCBT.
I am a trans non binary integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, with many years of experience working in an NHS Clinical Psychology Department and private practice. In private practice, I welcome anyone who feels that psychotherapy may be of help, whether you are looking to have just a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation, or would like to consider longer-term therapy. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, illness, bereavement, self-esteem, gender and sexuality, queer identity, life-changes, are just some of the reasons why you may want to try psychotherapy.

I trained in attachment based psychodynamic counselling.
Deciding to engage in therapy is a positive and brave decision to embark on a journey of self-discovery. As a therapist, my role is to create a secure base and be a guide for you, so that you can take up this challenge of self-discovery and move towards greater consciousness, choice and positivity. Many difficulties in present life and relationships have their origins in non- verbal and emotional experiences, and learning in early life relationships. This includes family, main caregivers and other influential figures. Also events and consistent experiences, which may amount to degrees of difficulty, pain or trauma.

Psychodynamic Counselling is an encounter between two people that involves deep listening and careful attention.
Hello and welcome to my profile. In the work I do it is important to build a sense of trust in order that you feel comfortable enough to discuss and explore difficult and perhaps embarrassing feelings that you may never have expressed to anyone else before. I will endeavour to listen deeply, sensitively and without judgement to what you bring. In doing so we will, working in partnership, seek to identify what may be at the root of the difficulties that you are experiencing. This may involve us exploring in depth your early experience and how your parents and caregivers may have related to you as a child.

My psychodynamic training has empowered me to believe that the strongest therapeutic tool is simply that of listening.
Perhaps the greatest gift the experience of counselling confers is simply that of having your feelings validated. The need to be heard and to explore how you are feeling about any of the challenges of life in a context where you are not being judged or interrupted or told-you-so can itself lift weight we all often feel holding us back. Your issue may be low mood, a relationship difficulty, struggling with life's direction or feeling like you can no longer cope. Whatever the need, it is often useful to think about how the past may be impacting on the present. Identifying these patterns often unlocks the future.

My professional training is in Process-experiential/Person-centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
The difficulties we experience in life can be highly impactful on how we see ourselves, how we relate to ourselves/others and on our own wellbeing. We can become stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour, trapped in our own internal conflict or afraid of/detached from our own emotion. Recognising that each of us is unique, therapy is a highly individualised process that aims to help us understand how our own internal world may be impacting our external problems. Focus is placed on gaining a compassionate understanding of why our lives are as they are and on processing any blocked emotion that is preventing change.

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on both the past and present. The psychodynamic approach looks at how important the role of the unconscious and past experiences is on influencing our current behaviour. I believe therapy can reduce pain from past experiences if you are willing and ready to motivate change within yourself. Whether it's short-term or open-ended therapy you are looking for I can help you gain a greater sense of wellbeing. Giving yourself the time to come to counselling will bring greater self-awareness and with it the opportunity for personal development and lasting change in your life.

I'm trained in psychodynamic and person-centred therapies and integrate CBT-skills.
Life is a series of changes, often bringing loss and pain but also the seeds of a positive transformation. Even if you're unsure how to move forward, a theme can emerge. Counselling can facilitate a new understanding of ourselves, our different relationships, our place in the world. By reassessing hopes and fears, we can work towards the difference we want to experience. Alongside general counselling, I have specialist experience in post-natal depression and traumatic emotional and sexual abuse. My approach, however, is to treat every person without presumptions, trusting the space that opens up and finding the best way for you.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Glasgow, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
