About me

At times in our lives we can feel as if we are not heard and counselling provides a space for you to be really listened to. Counselling offers a safe, confidential and non-judgmental approach where you can discuss whatever difficult issues you are experiencing in your life.

I specialise in Trauma and loss. I currently work for a charity organisation that deals with Adults who have experienced or been affected by child sexual abuse and rape I have previously worked for a GP practice where I offered both short and long term counselling on a 1 to 1 basis to clients suffering from a number of issues such as Anxiety , Depression bereavement to name only a few. I can also offer couples and family therapy if required. Eating issues is a specialist area that I work with due to my background in food and nutrition.

I have experience in working with the ex-patriot community and the difficulties of resettling and the loss and change that this can cause.

I am based in Kilmaurs which is in East Ayrshire, I can also offer appointments in Dalmelligton East Ayrshire which is easily accessed from areas in and around Ayr. I am easily accessed by other local authorities such as Dumfries & Galloway, North Ayrshire & South Ayrshire. I am flexible with appointments and can accommodate early morning, evenings and weekends which may suit if you are working 9 till 5.

I am a warm and approachable therapist and I can provide you with the safe space that you need to work through these difficulties that may be causing you distress, as at times in our lives we can all feel overwhelmed and this is okay however having someone who can help you to work through these difficult times and make them seem more manageable. .
