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 was awarded " CBT Therapist of the Year" in the 2022 Scottish Enterprise Awards and "Most Empowering CBT Therapist" in 2021.
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, anxiety, dissociation and self esteem. I work exclusively online allowing you to have therapy anywhere.

This led me to train in CBT and EMDR to help those with PTSD, Depression and OCD following childbirth.
If you're struggling with emotional distress, psychotherapy can help. Understanding your symptoms is often the first step towards recovery. If you can see a rational explanation for your problems, you are likely to engage in a hopeful way with therapeutic methods to restore your mental health. I would listen carefully to your account of what you face on a daily basis and to what it was like to be a child, an adolescent and an adult in your particular family setting. I would also be interested in what helps you cope. Reclaiming your normal life will involve building on your own strengths and on relationships with those you trust.

Hi I'm Carol! I have a special interest in working with adults with ADHD (diagnosed or undiagnosed), and phobias. I have an understanding of the many challenges ADHD presents such as; sustaining attention, procrastination, impulsivity, organisation skills, forgetfulness and anxiety. The symptoms of ADHD can impact on relationships, education and employment. It can help to talk through the concerns you have, and to learn techniques to make different aspects of your life manageable. I also work with phobias such as social phobia, toilet issues, fear of flying etc. The majority of phobias can be resolved in one session.

Hi my name is Sam. I work with children and young people. My focus when working with children and young people is to find a way to work with them to help with all of their areas of difficulty, from emotional to school and the variety of difficulties they can experience. I find that children and young people feel most comfortable in a familiar surrounding so I always try to work with the child in their own home or school.

I have over 30 years experience in supporting people with ADHD and High Functioning Autism. I share techniques to improve executive functioning, help set goals, prioritize, develop self awareness, unlock potential, stop underachieving. Understanding how developmental trauma (CPTSD) impacts on the nervous system and current relationships is vital and developing ways to dialogue, to listen to others, to feel heard is important. As a person-centred therapist I welcome a deep personal engagement and human connection and create a safe respectful space for healing to help you face life, become more confident and be who you really are.

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.

I help women heal their relationship with food + reconnect to their body. Are you tired of overwhelming negative + critical thoughts? Tired of hating your body? Tired of feeling fear, guilt + shame around food? Are you tired of trying so hard only to find you are right back to where you started? Then I have good news! Finding peace with food + your body doesn't have to be this hard! I’ve helped many clients over the years break free from distressing + life limiting patterns + find long term peace. Take a moment to imagine. What could life look like if you could just crack the code on this whole 'recovery' thing? Could you finally..

Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Counsellors
Cognitive-behavioural therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
