About me

Many of us experience negative emotions and distress at some point in our life. Sometimes it may be difficult to recover, to move forward or to live to our full potential. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression or feel stuck with emotional difficulties you might benefit from psychological help. Speaking to a psychologist can help you to understand your emotions and start to recognise patterns and discover new ways of dealing with difficulties.

My approach

I am an experienced chartered clinical psychologist based in Glasgow offering Psychological therapy to adults. I offer a safe place to think and clarify your difficulties and exploring alternative and positive ways to address these. I am committed to helping people find a creative, flexible and positive way of moving forward.

I work using a range of evidence based psychological therapies. Therapeutic approaches include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focussed therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy.

Treatment is on a highly individualised and collaborative basis and individual therapy is adapted to the client’s personal needs with a jointly agreed focus.

Assessment and psychological therapy can be arranged for a wide range of psychological difficulties, these include but are not limited to:

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex Trauma
  • Depression, Low mood
  • Low self- esteem
  • Distress associated with shame and guilt
  • Anxiety, Generalised anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic, Stress, Worry, Phobias
  • Health Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Eating disorders
  • Coping with life events.


Your first one or two appointments (assessment) are used to clarify and gain an understanding of the issues that you wish to address in therapy. Together we can decide on treatment goals. The following appointments will focus on treatment. Appointments last 50 minutes.
