Hello, and thanks for looking at my profile. I’m an accredited therapist with over 15 years experience, and wholly comfortable in dealing with a range of issues, from trauma to confidence, to abuse to anxiety. I’ve been described by former clients as friendly, easy to talk to and empathic. For me, the most important element in therapy is whether you feel you can trust me - and I know this is not always easy. You’ve likely been hurt and perhaps a little wary and weary of people. I’m not going to fix you, I can’t! Though the good news is, by working collaboratively, you absolutely can fix you, of that I have no doubt.

Originally from Manchester, I now live in Glasgow. I started my counselling training in London on Goldsmith University’s Graduate Certificate in Humanistic & Psychodynamic Counselling, before completing the University of Strathclyde’s MSc, Counselling & Psychotherapy. At Strathclyde I trained in Person-Centred Therapy and this forms the basis of my practice. I have experience working with a wide variety of people, I’m particularly familiar with autism and neurodiversity, and I work with all kinds of issues including depression and anxiety, as well as those vague feelings of just not being what you ought to be.

All I ask of my client is that they be willing to examine the negative aspects of their lives in order to move forward in a positive way; counselling is not for everyone and I will not make demands of my clients to return should they feel counselling is not for them, openness is paramount and I want my clients to feel comfortable to hold me accountable should there be issues outstanding that are stunting our progress.

I am a relational therapist and take a holistic approach to my clients. Broadly speaking this means I treat the person and not their problem or disorder. Rather than seeing mental health difficulties like depression or anxiety as something wrong with you that need to be fixed, I view them as valid and understandable responses to challenging life experiences. My work as a therapist is informed by both my academic training as well as my own personal struggles in striving for good mental health. I try to combine my theoretical knowledge of what can help with my own personal understanding of how challenging our lives and strugges can be

We all experience emotional pain; as an infant, a child, a teenager, a parent and an adult. Whether it’s in response to life events (e.g. loss, trauma, moves), transitions (e.g. to adolescents, as a parent, retirement), adjustment to ill health (e.g. cancer, chronic illness, injury) or life in general (e.g. long term low mood or anxiety). Accepting that we need help and support can be hard and daunting. Getting the right help is important and can teach you how to live a fulfilling life.

As your therapist, I will work together with you to find an approach to therapy that will best suit your needs. I offer a safe, respectful and accepting space. My clients describe me as positive, helpful, accepting, down-to-earth and straightforward; they like the way I explain things in a way they can understand. They appreciate my non-judgemental empathy, compassion and honesty, together with the way in which I work with them to achieve clearly agreed goals. They feedback that I use appropriate challenges and that our work together is solution focused and instils hope. My clients love the way I connect with them in meaningful way

I will offer you a safe, private and peaceful space to talk about the difficulties you are facing, to reflect on past experiences that may have left you anxious or depressed, and to work alongside you in making the changes that you feel you need.

Do you sometimes feel like others struggle to understand the constant & excessive anxiety you experience? Perhaps, it feels like you don't even understand yourself and what's going on & are tired of worrying about 'everything and anything'. Perhaps, sometimes, you don't even know what is is you are worrying about! I do get it. I work with all anxiety disorders but have a special interest in supporting clients with symptoms of Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD). I understand how paralysing worry can be, as it can feel draining and relentless. Even if it doesn't feel like it right now, you can feel better and I can help support you.

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 Glasgow?
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 Glasgow 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.
