About me

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, with experience of working both within the NHS and a third sector organisation which offers support to those affected by cancer. I believe that therapy works best when it is a collaborative undertaking, and so I will work with you in a way suited to you and your therapeutic needs.

I have experience of working with many mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, panic, low self-confidence and self-esteem issues, phobias, suicidality, personality disorders, abuse, relationship issues, and work stress, amongst others. I have a special interest in working with those affected by chronic and terminal illnesses, including those with the illness, their carers, family members and friends. I also have an interest in working with all types of bereavement, including bereavement due to stillbirth and neonatal death, and due to suicide.

I believe that mental wellness is important, so I offer stress and anxiety management, and relaxation.

I offer individual and group therapy and will work with families.

Training, qualifications & experience

M.A. (Hons), MSc Psychological Studies, DPsych Counselling Psychology

I have a Masters Degree from Glasgow University in Psychological Studies and a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology for Glasgow Caledonian University. I also have an M.A.(Hons) in English from Aberdeen University.

Before retraining in psychology, I taught English, working with children and adolescents outside mainstream education, and with educational needs. I have experience of working within a Community Mental Health Team (CMHT), dealing with a wide range of mental health issues, and for a third sector organisation offering support to those affected by cancer. I have undertaken research into aspects of bereavement by stillbirth and neonatal death.
