About me

I am a pluralistic psychotherapist and therefore my approach is deeply influenced by pluralistic values and principles. My practice is based around the idea that there is not a “one size fits all” approach to therapy. I work to the understanding that different things work for different people at different times. I therefore endeavour to practice in a way which takes into account what insight, knowledge and preferences you bring to therapy. Ultimately, I have a deep commitment to build an authentic relationship underpinned by collaboration, trust, and care.

Training, qualifications & experience


  • Master of Science in Counselling
  • Master of Arts in Youth and Community Work


My background in supporting people from all walks of life with varying concerns, and my experience working with trauma has given me a strong foundation to support individuals who come to therapy with a range of issues and concerns to include depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues and difficult life changes.

Trauma Informed Work

I specialise in supporting individuals who have been affected by trauma; particularly those who have experienced sexual abuse and/or rape. I support individuals in understanding their traumatic experiences and the impact of trauma on various aspects of their lives such as self-worth, relationships and self-identity. I recognise fully that individuals have had experiences unique to them and will collaborate with you to explore what works best. I support women and men aged 18 years and older.

Veterans, Uniformed Services & Family/Carers

As a veteran I have a personal insight into some aspects of the issues and concerns that can arise from service including trauma and reintegrating into a now often unfamiliar life. I also have worked with uniformed service such as police, ambulance services, nurses, and appreciate the parallels with veterans in terms of the impact of traumatic events. Additionally, I support family and friends to not only understand their family members or friend’s behaviour but also to support them regarding the impact it has on them; which can often go unnoticed.

Alcohol & Substance Misuse

I have experience working in the field of substance and alcohol misuse and supporting individual to gain a level of control over their addiction or dependency enabling them to move forward in their lives. I understand that there are many complex reasons for people to use alcohol and/or drugs and that when it becomes “misuse” it can impact the individual and those that they care for and that care for them. I work with individuals to achieve an awareness into the different aspects of their use and empower them towards their goals; be that reduction in consumption or abstinence.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Additional information


Our initial appointment provides us with space and time to have a gentle and collaborative discussion of your needs and circumstances, decide whether therapy may be helpful, and if we are a “good fit”.

It is essential for you to feel comfortable with me, your therapist, as this can make a significant difference to the outcome of your therapy. If we decide to work together, we will agree on the frequency of our sessions.


I offer weekly and fortnightly depending on your needs. I have a bespoke private and comfortable office in my home which is located in a little village in Fife. I do also offer online video/audio appointments and these are over Zoom.

Concession Rates
