  • Helping you Heal

I originally trained with a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling 2000-2003. Thats now an amazing 23 years since I began my training and practice. Wow!

Since then I have have worked in various paid Counselling posts, with both Children and Young People and Adults in different voluntary secor organisations in Scotland.

I helped set up and establish new Counselling positions in Central Scotland, working in Schools, Community Hospitals or GP surgeries or other Comminity settings.

I worked for various EAP companies, as a mental health mentor alongside a small private practice.

These days I maintain a 3 day a week private practice working with Adults.

F2F and in person, Walk and Talk

I work face to face F2F in person or in WALK and TALK sessions, or online.

I have a special interest and I have dedicated all of my Training and CPD since I qualified to help me understand and work with people who have experienced Trauma, or abuse in their lifes.

The main Models I have trained in that still influence my work are –

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Internal Family Systems

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

Becoming Safely Embodied (Derdrie Fay)

Looking through the Eyes of Disociation Sandra Paulson.

I very much enjoy working somatically, that is with the body. With sensations, thoughts, memory or images.

Working always gently and at the pace of the client in a client centered way.

If you are interested in working with me- please don’t hesitate to be in touch.
