I am an experienced Counsellor and can offer a safe and confidential space to help you look at what it is that is making life difficult. We all at times struggle to know how to manage and cope with how we feel and whilst we know it's important to look after our physical health, we also need to take care of our hearts and minds, I see my role as one of helping you make sense of what might be causing you to feel depressed, anxious, even that life feels too much, your relationships might be affected or going to work is just too hard, you might know the cause and just need to be heard and supported to see a way forward.

My firm belief is that the first meeting is vital to building a good rapport and I pride myself on supporting my clients on their initial phone call, our first meeting and continuing throughout therapy. This allows the person to feel safe, secure and relaxed, whilst exploring their issues from past and/or present. Exploring past or present traumatic events in a clients life is my speciality however some clients may not want to explore past trauma, then the clients choice is ultimately important & respected. Clients are at the heart of every session and have the right to explore where they feel comfortable.

Are you struggling with relationships, significant life changes or issues relating to self esteem, anxiety, loss, grief and trauma? Maybe the issue is less tangible, but you are aware of a changing of the seasons, a sense that you no longer know quite who you are, nor quite what you want next out of life. Life can be overwhelming and exhausting for all of us sometimes. Sometimes we need help in coping with life's challenges.

Welcome. I aim to offer a warm, caring and genuine space, ensuring that the client has a physical and emotional ‘space’ to be heard and understood and their particular needs met. Being a pluralistic therapist, I know that different people are helped by different therapeutic methods and activities at different times. I believe that empathy and the therapeutic relationship is central to my way of working and the foundation to the way I practice. I strive to be a good listener with an ability to ‘hold’ difficult stories which helps the client feel safe and share concerns.

When life gets hard or distressing and becomes overwhelming its often through counselling we can release that thought-feeling that is upsetting us. Sometimes we need additional supports to help us make sense of our thoughts, feelings and emotions. We often underestimate how events and traumas can affect our perspectives on life and our relationships. Our past life events and perceived future that can have a devastating effect on us, bringing on anxiety and depression. Counselling can help empower you to make changes and build coping mechanisms.

Do you often feel a sense of guilt or shame around food? Do thoughts of food become intrusive or overwhelming? Are you often binging or eating until you feel uncomfortable or sick (Binge Eating Disorder)? Perhaps you are fixated on 'healthy' or 'clean' eating (Orthorexia Nervosa)? Maybe you 'purge' by excessively exercising, restricting, making yourself sick, using laxatives, or have a history of yo-yo dieting (Bulimia Nervosa)? Perhaps you avoid whole food groups and are often called a 'fussy' or 'picky' eater (ARFID)? Or a combination of any of the above (EDNOS)? It sounds like you are struggling with an Eating Disorder!

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 Kirkcaldy?
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 Kirkcaldy 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.
