Sometimes things in life become difficult and we have overwhelming feelings which lead to difficulties with coping with life's experiences. I am available to talk through the issues affecting individuals and help them look at ways to explore what they are experiencing and look at different ways to think, feel and behave through them. Things can change and life can be different, sometimes we just need a helping hand to see that. If you want someone to talk to or are looking to make significant changes in your life I will work alongside you to develop a relationship that will be positive, potent and protected.

I work primarily in a Person-Centred way, but draw in and integrate many other styles and aspects of other therapeutic approaches depending on the client’s needs. I believe therapy is a client’s space to explore and seek meaning from their experience, and I utilise creative techniques, metaphor and humour in pursuit of this.

Are you in a relationship but feel that something isn’t quite right: Maybe you argue a lot or don’t really communicate anymore, you are together but still feel alone? Or maybe you are trying to deal with a change, like having a baby, retiring, or moving to a new place, and that has created stress and tension in your relationship? Are you struggling with illness or bereavement? Perhaps you are no longer in a relationship but would like to work through an ending? Or maybe you would like to focus on yourself and explore what a meaningful and authentic life would look like for you?

People who come bring multiple experiences, challenges and longings. Some concerns include: feeling low, worried, unseen, unheard, wanting change; dealing with challenges in relationships; bereavement and loss; feeling stuck/blocked; unclear about life direction with deeper meaning and purpose; identity; ecology and climate change; spiritual exploration; creativity, imagination. My work includes eco-psychology and nature-based human development having apprenticed with Animas Valley Institute in Colorado. Central to my practice is the quality of relationship between us that can enable a deepening authentic life.

The nature of being human means that life can be hard, sometimes we can feel stuck, overwhelmed or have lost a sense of who we are. I seek to offer a safe, held and supportive space which is yours to process and explore the difficulties that life brings. My approach is based on a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy framework, deeply integrating compassion-focused values and practices. Together we explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and what is underlying them, before challenging those which are no longer serving you, helping you to make positive changes and to become more equipped moving forward.

I work with individuals aged 12 and up at the moment. You may have issues with anxiety or trauma and are looking for ways to regulate yourself and work through the trauma. There may be attachment issues established in childhood that have been unhelpful in adulthood. Perhaps you require a confidential place to process distressing things you have experienced, or somewhere to take ownership of your story and change your narrative.

“Life doesn’t get better by chance, it gets better by change”. At times we can all feel anxious or uncertain of our future. Sometimes we need to make changes in order to improve our situation. However, the prospect of change can feel overwhelming, leaving us feeling disconnected, isolated and lonely. Hearing your thoughts out loud, with a professional, can be an opportunity to gain some clarity and begin the process of change. I truly believe that a small change in the way we think can make a big difference to the way we feel.

Many things bring us to counselling. For some, it is overwhelming emotions, such as loss or anger. For others, it is painful or restrictive marital or family relationships. Some of us seek counselling because day-to-day life feels pointless or it’s dominated by anxiety. Some of us are quite stuck: for example, you may have a part of you that wants to achieve things in life but another part of you habitually sabotages your efforts.

Is everything okay?....... This can be a difficult question to answer. Our default response is often "yes", but deep down, for a lot of us, that's simply not true. Often we struggle to verbalise it, can be exceptionally good at denying it even exists or spend copious amounts of emotional energy keeping it at bay. Perhaps you know why you don't feel okay and perhaps you don't. Either way, I can help. I offer a safe, confidential space to allow you to explore any issues you may be experiencing.

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Unhappy, experiencing relationship problems, feeling alone or held back by trauma or bereavement? Are you seeking counselling for a child or young person? Therapy can be short term, 4-6 sessions and we can work together in a highly focused way, including exploring strategies if you wish to. For some, longer term therapy is preferred. In this we can explore issues in greater depth and you can be supported to make lasting changes in your life. For children, therapy happens in the midst of play and craft activities.

When we are trying to make sense of our situation or understand ourselves, we may feel we need someone to hear us. It could be something in particular that is causing you difficulties such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, low self confidence, bereavement or relationship issues (family, personal or work). Or it can be a feeling of uncertainty, something about how you are feeling isn't quite right. We are all part of an interconnected world influenced by and influencing our relationships and situations. For this reason I give attention to what is happening now, your personal history, life situation and narrative.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Dunbar?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 Dunbar 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.
