About me

I now work as an independent counsellor in Crieff, having moved from Leicestershire. England.  I have 30 years experience working within a variety of contexts; Relate, GP surgeries, School settings and mental health CAMHS teams and looked after children within a care system and a founder member of Futureminds Psychology Services Ltd.

I really enjoy helping people to make a difference, in a short a time as is possible during therapy. I can apply my knowledge of multiple theories to suit each individual case and find aiding people to build on their coping strategies very helpful to them. I offer a private and comfortable consulting room.

I work with adults, children and adolescents; individuals, couples and families. I specialise in child and adolescent mental health including people on the autistic spectrum including Asperger. i have worked closely with private fostering agencies offering training and support for foster carers and the children directly. I have worked with children in the care system experiencing attachment disorders and/or have developmental issues. I also see people referred through the Employee Assistance programme.

I work in a positive, respectful, non-judgemental and anti oppressive manner and believe that all human beings have the capacity the help themselves with the right support and guidance.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am very interested in furthering my training with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute. I have completed Level 1 and Level 2 and have found that people are making quite dramatic improvements in their well being during therapy. Especially reducing symptoms of trauma and repairing developemental issues.

I have attained relate certificate in Marital and Couple Counselling in Theory and Practice, Also, I have trained with the Human Givens Institute and apply the theory and practice techniques regularly, including the rewind technique, in my practice.
