I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals from my practice near Grantshouse, 12 miles south of Dunbar and 13 miles north of Berwick-upon-Tweed. I work with issues of anxiety, panic, depression, grief, self-esteem, emotional difficulties, life changes, relationship difficulties, among others.
