About me

Therapy provides the opportunity to process and overcome what might be challenging, confused, worrying or painful and by entering into a dialogue you will be able to unpack your story, get to the root of issues and gain new clarity on your past and your present.  During this process, you will engage in a healthy one to one conversation marked by curiosity, respect and kindness. 

I am an experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist registered with the HCPC. Psychology House, St Andrews is an independent private practice offering Counselling Psychology to adults in St Andrews and Fife.

I provide psychological assessment and evidence- based interventions including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy, Mindfulness and Compassion Focussed Therapy as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I work with adults experiencing a range of mental health difficulties including anxiety, depression, panic, OCD, adjustment issues, relationship, attachment and interpersonal difficulties as well as loss and bereavement. 

If you have any queries, please feel free to get in touch either by telephone or email to discuss further or to arrange an initial appointment and then we can take it from there.

Training, qualifications & experience

My training and experience spans over twenty years. I have a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and I am chartered with the British Psychological Society. I am registered with the HCPC. Other qualifications include an BSc Honours Degree in Psychology as well as MSW, Masters from Glasgow University. 

I have worked with children, young people, adults and older adults experiencing emotional distress in their lives and who want support to change the way they deal with difficulties. I have extensive group work experience using CBT.

My previous experience includes working within local authorities and the voluntary sector as well as within  universities, secondary schools, forensic, residential, health and drugs & alcohol settings.

I currently work within the  Maggie's Centre providing specialist psychological evidenced based treatment to support to individuals with cancer and their families. This includes, couple work as well as group work. I also deliver the Mindfulness based cognitive therapy within a group setting. 

I also provide clinical supervision services for therapeutic practitioners and allied health professionals on a one to one basis. I am currently enlisted on the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors ( RAPPS).

My therapeutic approach is tailored to an individuals needs and preferences working in both a non-judgemental and compassionate way. I draw on a range of evidence-based therapies and techniques.

I am trained and experienced in cognitive behavioural and humanistic approaches. However, it is important that you feel supported within the therapeutic relationship and that therapy is both helpful and useful.If we meet for an initial appointment we will discuss your situation, needs and preferences and decide how we might proceed.
