I offer 1-2-1, counselling for adults or children. I am the lead counsellor at All-of-You Therapy.
All-of-You Therapy is located in a discreet, self-contained centre in Milnathort, with free parking opposite on Stirling Road. A regular bus service runs to Milnathort from Fife, Perth and beyond.
In addition to providing our children’s counselling service at All-of-You Therapy, I am currently a counsellor in primary schools for children (4 years old upwards) with the award winning Place2Be, providing early intervention, play-led therapy. Early intervention provides children, who find themselves vulnerable, anxious, worried or dealing with other issues, with the emotional tools to cope in the present but also to deal with these issues in later life. We have adopted this positive, constructive approach for our work at All-of-You Therapy.
I hold PVG certificates from Disclosure Scotland.
For the past four years, I have also worked in several agencies counselling adults coping with issues ranging from personal development and relationships to grief to surviving sexual abuse. I have also undertaken rigorous trauma training and have counselled on many trauma related issues. A full list of counselling areas I have worked with are shown in the tick box below.
My therapeutic approach as a counsellor is integrative. My diploma is in Psychodynamic & Person-centred Counselling. I will bring other approaches in where necessary, to suit client needs by preference and where appropriate.
Sessions at All-of-You Therapy normally last for 1 full hour. If you'd like to arrange an appointment, please contact me via email or telephone. In our initial meeting, we would discuss what has brought you to counselling. You would have an opportunity to gain a sense of who I am and how we would work together. If you'd like to continue counselling with All-of-You Therapy, we would discuss appointment frequency i.e. weekly or fortnightly.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask.
