I am a qualified and experienced Counselling Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist, running private practice in central Kinross.
I am passionate about my work and as a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling Psychotherapists, I offer a confidential and professional service you can trust.
I understand coming to therapy can feel daunting at first but I believe it is a worthwhile and courageous step towards making positive changes in your life. It is my aim to make you feel welcome by creating a comfortable and safe space where we can work together towards a more balanced, reflective and centred self ...living your best life, to your full potential.
My areas of specialist interest include; depression, anger problems, stress, anxiety, addictions (alcohol, drugs, solvent, sex, gambling), adult survivors of child sexual abuse, trauma, abuse (emotional &/or physical), confidence issues, bereavement, relationship therapy (couples or individual), eating disorders, self empowerment, self-awareness, loss, identity issues, coping with long term illness, chronic pain, lost connection with self.
My office is just off the High Street in Kinross. It's easy to find, discrete, comfortable & safe. There are plenty local carparking spaces available within short walking distance.
Once your appointment is arranged, I will text or email directions.

Testimonial, kindly offered and printed with permission ....Heather is warm and welcoming; really easy to talk to and expertly guides me around my head space, often without me noticing. I had lost control of what goes on in there, but she has helped me to stop, look at myself and get back in touch with 'me'. There’s no pressure; no measurement or benchmark to achieve; it’s all about me and my world. It’s like having a professional best friend! Her consultation room is a little haven of tranquillity and somehow manages to prevent distraction while staying in touch with the lovely garden area immediately outside.
