About me

  • Individual, Couples and Family CBT Therapy and Counselling
  • Student and Practitioner Supervision
  • CBT and Counselling Lecturer at Introduction, Certificate and Diploma Level
  • Mindfulness Teacher for Individuals and Groups
  • Qualified Hatha Yoga Teacher (500YTT) for Individuals and Groups
  • Qualified Accessible Yoga Practitioner

I am an Accredited Member of BACP and a COSCA Accredited Diploma Course Tutor, teaching at Certificate and Diploma Level.  I have also completed Mindfulness Teacher Training and Qualified as a Hatha Yoga Teacher.

Offering an approach which is grounded in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for those who are seeking Counselling, Therapy, Training, Supervision, Mindfulness and Yoga.  I offer private appointments for adults and children and currently operate from offices which are centrally located in Alloa and also in Glasgow City Centre.

Supervision and Tutoring - supporting students and practitioners with respect of their chosen therapeutic orientation. Building a trusting collaborative relationship which explores evidence based practice, theories, skill development, contracting, ethics and boundaries, functions of supervision, working with diversity and power and how the practitioner works within their contexts and role.

After working with many people with eating disorder, historical and recent abuse and shame and guilt, I wanted to offer a therapeutic approach that is more holistic than just working with the mind, so I trained as a yoga teacher to also help people to connect to their body/breath.  I have a compassionate and supportive approach to yoga - you can find further details on my social media profiles.  www.peachyyoga.com

I have had many years of working in the voluntary sector with adults and children who are experiencing major changes, difficulties and crisis in their lives. I have been employed and volunteered in a variety of settings over the last 20 years which include setting up a Crisis Food Bank and Befriending Service with Start-Up Stirling, setting up a pilot counselling service for young people with Action in Mind and providing support in High School and College settings.  I am also experienced in working extensively with EAP and Private Health Companies.
