About me

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with a background in Health Psychology, providing private therapy in Paisley and Glasgow.

I provide a supportive and sensitive environment where you can discuss your situation without pressure or judgement, and we can work together to help you find a way to cope with your difficulties. Often it is difficult to understand why we are distressed, unhappy or not coping, and CBT can help clarify your thinking and look for practical solutions to move forward.

Cognitive behavioral therapy has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for a wide variety of problems in hundreds of different clinical trials. It is problem-solving oriented, and clients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.

Just a few of the problems it has been shown to be effective with are:

- Psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, anger and substance misuse;

- Medical problems with a psychological component, including conditions involving chronic or acute pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, pre-menstrual syndrome and sleep disorders.

CBT is also used to address stress, low self-esteem, grief and loss, work-related problems and problems associated with aging


Since graduating in Psychology in 2002 I have worked extensively with clients in the statutory and voluntary sectors as a therapist, psychologist and support worker. I have particular experience in working in areas such as trauma and PTSD, anxiety, bereavement, obsessive compulsive behaviours, coping with physical health problems, addiction, domestic violence, anger management and physical and sexual abuse.

I am a member of the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

I was employed as a Research Psychologist at the Universities of Glasgow and Ulster for several years, mainly in the areas of stress, family functioning, social anxiety and coping skills. I have extensive experience of working with people with chronic illnesses, their families and carers.

I have since worked for organisations providing support for people with addictions and with those who have experienced domestic violence.
Along with one-to-one therapy, I work for The Institute of Counselling in Glasgow as a tutor on their courses teaching cognitive behavioural therapy.
