Are you feeling stuck? Is anxiety or low mood affecting your life? People usually come to therapy when they feel that they no longer have the ability to deal with the difficulties they are experiencing. When the previous ways of coping and support by friends and relatives are not enough to offer them the solutions and relief they seek. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to talk about any issues you might have. I will listen to your story with compassion and help you find your own solutions, whether that is making effective changes in your life or change the way you view yourself, others and experience relationships.

Counselling is your confidential space to talk. You may be seeking clarity on an issue, or want to explore things that are overwhelming you, and if you wish, make changes in your life. I hope that by talking to a professional during these difficult times can bring peace. I offer a safe space as we unravel together the aspects of you that are struggling or stuck. And help you to find new perspectives to deal with living the way that you want to live.

Having worked in the field of mental health for over 25 years, I have a deep understanding of the challenges people are faced with on a daily basis. How we experience these challenges can become overwhelming and we can feel alone, helpless and disconnected. There may be times when it's useful to seek help outside of your current circle of support by talking with a counsellor and I can help you find new ways to explore and manage the difficulties you are experiencing. I work with individuals to offer short-term counselling to address immediate concerns, and long term counselling to address complex issues.

Perhaps you are feeling alone at the moment, stuck inside your head ruminating over the ways in which life isn't how you want it to be. It's exhausting, and although you may get occasional glimpses of a better place, it often feels very distant and impossible to get to. You probably give yourself a pretty hard time about not being able to figure it out, comparing yourself to others who seem to have it together. You may feel disconnected from your 'true' self, like you don't fit in or belong anywhere. Perhaps you long for a sense of meaning or purpose, or a better way of managing and coping in your current work or relationships.

If you find that you keep trying to protect yourself from difficult experiences/memories and your old ways of managing problems no longer seem to work, you are not alone. Old/early response methods are often unhelpful in the present life experience. For example, one may try to only feel what they learned to believe is acceptable or expected of them, eventually losing touch with their authentic feelings/needs. Emotion suppression often leads to depression, anxiety, physical pain, and illness, then one feels unable to fully appreciate the present experience. When suppressed, emotions await within the body for releasing opportunities.

I offer therapy to individuals and couples facing difficulties with their relationships, life and career choices. I believe communication, or lack of, is often at the root of many problems. It can be difficult to express our feelings and often we don't feel that we are heard or understood by the the important people in our lives. It may be that you have low self esteem and find relationships of all kinds difficult. You may be scared or perhaps you don't feel valued or cherished in your relationship. I will help you to explore the reasons behind this and work with you so that you can become the person you would like to be.

I specialise in working with children, young people and families, helping to overcome challenges associated with school and mental health difficulties as well as the impact of trauma. My approach is based upon a belief that children and families should be able to access the psychological advice and support they need, when they need it. I understand that accessing professional advice from services can sometimes feel intimidating or impossible due to long waiting lists. I therefore aim to offer an approachable and professional service, and offer home visits for families who prefer a more relaxed and comfortable approach.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Scotland are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Scotland then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Scotland, or Child Psychologists in Scotland.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Scotland psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Scotland specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
