About me

I am qualified in Integrative Therapy which means I use (and combine) several types of Therapy depending on the individual needs of my client.  I work from my Therapy room in my home in Larkhall.  I offer you a safe and confidential space where you are free to talk about your problems and challenges.

Some people hold on to issues for years, and by doing this we can affect our overall health.  I  believe that many of our issues stem from when we were younger, and to be able to move on with our lives, it is important to revisit that painful time and work through it.  Once we realise how something we do currently, stems from an event in the past, it can be like a lightbulb moment.

I will also help with tools and coping strategies for  be you to be confident about the future.

As well as working with adults, I have gained a lot of experience working with children and young people, and so I see clients of all ages.

I am fully insured and all of my certificates are available to view if required.

I attend monthly supervision, as well as supervision within my workplace and with Cruse.

I am also interested in Mindfulness, and  include it in sessions if required, along with breathing techniques- especially when working with Stress and Anxiety.
