Psychotherapist and Counsellor
(MBACP accred.)

 

Individuals and Couples

The truth is that everyone will experience difficulties and difficult situations either in their personal or work life. Some are harder to deal with on your own. A friendly, experienced, listening ear can make a positive difference to your life.

Through my work for organisations such as Trauma Psychotherapy Scotland and Renfrewshire Association for Mental Health, I have 15 years of experience counselling clients suffering a range of symptoms from depression and acute anxiety through to trauma and P.T.S.D.

No two people are the same. I therefore tailor my approach and use different therapeutic modalities to support you to understand and integrate your body, mind and spirit and make sense of yourself in how you respond to life events, love or pain, in order to regain clarity, grounding, sense of self and dignity.

As well as working cognitively, I work somatically as trauma and stress affect the body. I have 20 years of meditation experience and therefore include mindfulness and somatic based reflective practices in the sessions.

Founded and pioneered by Dr Peter Levine, I am currently undertaking the 3-year Somatic Experiencing training, a somatic based therapy in the healing of trauma and stress related conditions.

I also specialise in working with individuals looking to bring more fulfilment and authenticity into their lives. Having worked in the corporate sector for 15 years, I appreciate the feeling of emptiness and not living true to one’s deeper sense of self.

It is important you feel safe and comfortable. A good therapist can be a creative catalyst for change, aiming to help clients take control of their life in a productive and satisfying way. At the heart of this is the client / therapist relationship. I offer an empathic and non-judgemental environment where you can feel free to express yourself in complete confidence.
