About me

I offer 1-2-1, counselling for adults or children. I am the lead Counsellor at All-of-You Therapy

All-of-You Therapy is located in a discreet, office on the bottom floor of a lovely traditional building in quiet Blackfriars Street, Perth PH1 5NA.  There is a large car park nearby.  Our practice has been custom designed for and by All-of-You therapy.

In addition to providing our children’s counselling service at All-of-You Therapy, I have worked as a Counsellor in private practice with children from 3yrs old and in primary schools with children, 4yrs old and upwards  with the award winning Place2Be, providing early intervention, play-led therapy.  Early intervention provides children, who find themselves vulnerable, anxious, worried or dealing with other issues, with the emotional tools to cope in the present but also to deal with these issues in later life.  We have adopted this positive, constructive approach for our work at All-of-You Therapy.

I have also worked in several agencies counselling adults coping with issues ranging from personal development and relationships to grief to surviving sexual abuse.  I have also undertaken rigorous trauma training and have worked with many trauma related issues.   Other areas I have work with are shown in the tick box below.

My therapeutic approach is integrative, using mainly Psychodynamic & Person-centred theories.  In counselling children I use play-led therapy - Although there is no reason why adults shouldn't use play therapy too, if they wish.  In working with any individual, I will use and/or suggest other approaches where necessary, to suit client needs and where appropriate.

Sessions at All-of-You Therapy normally last for 1 full hour.   If you'd like to arrange an appointment, please contact me via email or telephone.   In our initial meeting, we will discuss what has brought you to me.  You will have an opportunity to gain a sense of who I am and how we would work together.  If you'd like to continue sessions with All-of-You Therapy, we would discuss appointment frequency i.e. weekly or fortnightly.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to ask via email or telephone.
