AboutI will work with integrity, appreciating the uniqueness of each person I work with. I will strive to enable them to realise their potential and live the most meaningful life possible.
I have been involved in the Counselling and Psychotherapy world for most of my adult life, starting my journey in my late teens, when I was trained as a volunteer by the ‘Samaritans’; offering telephone support.
Some years later I became a volunteer counsellor with the then named Scottish ‘Council on Alcohol’, offering individual support to those struggling with their use of alcohol. Later I went on to offer supervision to other counsellors in the agency.
In 2003, I completed a Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy with Edinburgh Gestalt Institute and gained accreditation with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy ( B.A.C.P.). Since then, I have been in private practice developing valuable experience in dealing with a wide range of issues and needs.
This has lead me on to complete and study several other aspects of psychotherapy such as ‘Couples Work’ (from the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute), enabling me to see both individuals and couples in my practice.
In addition to my private work I have over 20 years working with the NHS within the fields of Mental Health and Learning Disability. Part of my scope of working in the NHS over the last 10 years has been to deliver Psychotherapy.
I enjoy teaching and have delivered many courses in Counselling skills, Psychotherapy and personal development to both statutory and voluntary agencies in the U.K and internationally. I am passionate about my work as a Psychotherapist and believe in supporting individuals and couples to have the most meaningful life possible.
