I am a psycho-dynamic counsellor and have been counselling couples, adults and teenagers for over twenty years. I work with issues creating such distressing issues as anxiety, bereavement, relationships, eating problems, illnesses - in fact most of the problems which need to be looked at to improve life for my clients. I work with couples and with individuals of all ages. I also use CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and other therapies which I have studied in order to help clients to change or cope with their problems. I can offer a non-judgemental, safe place for people to bring their problems for help.

While Doctors make up around 40% of my clients, I have helped people from all walks of life in my 24 years of practice, and if you are looking for a compassionate and experienced therapist, I may be right for you. I can help with; attachment, trauma, anxiety, depression, overwork / work stress, personal relationships, and more. A healthy self-relationship is, I believe, a much neglected and misunderstood area and one I help many people with each year. Video sessions can be an easy way to access a skilled practitioner with 20+ years of experience. You can find out more information about me on my website and read my blog.

I aim to work alongside you to understand your difficulties; how they came about, what’s keeping them going and how they impact upon your every day life. Part of therapy is about noticing unhelpful patterns along with increasing our awareness of accompanying emotions and unhelpful beliefs and actions that keep us stuck, In turn, instead of feeling overwhelmed by emotions, therapy can help us to read our emotions better and respond to them with healthy compassionate actions.

Let me help you feel better. If you are struggling with past or present emotional difficult experiences. Or are struggling with academic/work/life situations. You are similar to many of my previous clients that I have helped. They found that rather than ignore unwanted thoughts and unhelpful coping strategies, that fully understanding "what happened to them" gave them an opportunity to do things differently in their present life. If you choose for us to work together, we will explore what brought you here today. You will be in safe hands, my CBT postgraduate course was a jointly run by NHS tayside and Dundee School of Medicine.

Life is full of ups and downs. There are times it can feel like an endless uphill battle with little reprieve. Maybe you are noticing an increase in feeling anxious, depressed, stressed or overwhelmed. Perhaps you are having issues at work, your relationships, low self esteem or the loss of a loved one. If you have experienced childhood or adult trauma(s) there may be painful memories, flashbacks or nightmares disrupting your life, even many years after the event. I work with most mental health concerns but specialise in trauma, dissociation, anxiety and self esteem. I work remotely allowing you to have therapy anywhere.

We all experience times when we feel isolated, misunderstood or lonely; we have the impression that we can’t function anymore in our daily life. Keeping it all inside and being unable to share our thoughts and feelings with someone for fear of being judged or criticised is not a pleasant thought. As humans, we need to talk, and we make sense of our individual circumstances and pain by processing them. I am here to support you through your difficult times.

Making the decision to see a therapist is a big step forward in dealing with what is troubling you and it can be difficult to know where to start. Finding the right therapist for you is an important first step. I aim to provide a comfortable and supportive environment, where we will work through whatever is troubling you at your own pace. You will be listened to, accepted and respected regardless of what you tell me. I will not tell you what to do, but will do my best to support you in working through any difficulties you may be experiencing and to give you the space to make the decisions that are right for you.

Is your anxiety impacting your quality of life? Are you beginning to think your way of coping is doing you more harm than good? Maybe you don’t want to open up family or friends, due to feelings of shame, or your uncertainty as to how they will react. It’s hard keeping it all in and can sometimes become unbearable. That’s when counselling can help.

Whatever your reason for seeking counselling; abuse, anxiety, overthinking, self-esteem, work or relationship issues, to name but a few, you're probably looking for something to change. Counselling offers you a different kind of relationship, one where you can open up, explore and reassess current or historic issues which may be holding you back. With greater understanding comes greater resilience and self-empowerment, which can enable you to make the changes you want in order to enjoy your life more fully. That life can be hard is a fact. That we have to face challenging times alone is not. Get in touch and start that change!
