Children and teenagers can benefit from counselling therapies, and studies show that these are hugely effective, both in the short and long term. For older kids and teens, talking therapy can provide a unique space to safely explore what's going on to make them sad, angry, or anxious. For younger children, using play and art, as well as talking therapy, can help them begin to piece together things that might be difficult for them. Life doesn't always go according to plan, and sometimes things happen that no one is prepared for - an accident, a traumatic experience, a situation no one could have foreseen happening.

As you’re here, there’s no doubt you’re struggling with an issue or problem that might feel overwhelming, distressing or out of control. Rest assured, help is at hand. We all experience various symptoms and problems throughout life, and it’s my job to help you achieve significant and meaningful change. I won’t bore you with therapy jargon either, there’s probably more pressing issues on your mind, and I know what that's like. What I will say, is that after years of dedicated training, experience and witnessing people make real difference in their lives, I know professional therapy helps.

Having the right fit (“therapeutic alliance”) with your psychologist is viewed as the most crucial factor in the healing process. I would encourage you to choose a practitioner with a broad life experience as well as a clinical training in a range of evidence-based psychological therapies. A former lawyer, I practised human rights & social justice law for years in the courts in the UK. This led to my interest in psychology & trauma & therapies to overcome psychological difficulties. I’ve lived in Canada, France, Italy & Scotland and have travelled all over the world, so I hope to have a background which may help you.

’m an experienced HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist based in Dunfermline, with over 15 years of psychology experience both within the NHS and private sector. I aim to come alongside you to help make sense of distress and find the best way to move forward to improve wellbeing. Part of therapy is about noticing unhelpful life patterns that keep us stuck. This involves developing more awareness of our emotions, thoughts and actions. Difficult emotions can be challenging and we naturally avoid them, however a psychological stance is that understanding and responding to emotions are in fact key to living a meaningful life.

Hi there :) Are you looking for support around coming out? Transitioning? Questioning your gender, sexuality or another aspect of your identity? Recovering from experiences of harm? Or perhaps need a safe space where you can feel understood and respected so you can get on with talking about what's going on for you? When we are unable to (safely) be our authentic selves we can experience great stress, anxiety, low mood as well as other challenges. Counselling and an exploratory listening approach such as the one I practice can really help to improve self relationship, reduce distress and isolation & increase well being.

Life can be a challenge, especially now. As your therapist, I can offer you a secure and trusted space to bring your needs and concerns. I believe that therapy should lead to a “step change” where my clients become able to make an immediate difference to the way they think and their relationships with others. I work to build trust and empathy and strive to understand the world from your perspective. I can help you to understand that small changes to the way you see things can have a major impact on how you feel.

Changing anything starts with the decision to try! Ask yourself what you want from therapy. Do you need to discuss your thoughts? Do you need to discuss how you're feeling? Do you feel stuck with these issues? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is one way to effectively address this. Support is key here & working with me in CBT can aid change! You have to challenge to change and putting your trust in an experienced CBT Therapist is the first step to change & I assure you of a confidential & professional ear at all times. Work out what you want and need and go for it, get the help...you have everything to gain by putting yourself first!

Throughout our lives most of us will experience some form of emotional, mental or relationship problems. These problems can be related to our work, our home life, our past or simply come out of the blue. Sometimes it might just be a mild inconvenience, but more often it can affect our lives profoundly. Either way it can be hard to admit that help might be needed. And harder still to find the best help. That’s where I come in. With psychotherapy or counselling I can help you discover what the issues are and work with you to fix them.
