About me

Hello, I’m Mer and I’m delighted you have visited my counselling profile.

I am a genuine, down to earth individual with many years of experience in the mental health and addictions field. 

I offer and practice virtual video therapy and clinical supervision from my home in the beautiful West Coast of Scotland. 

I am a Licensed Psychologist, Psychotherapist. As well as a Licensed Addictions Therapist. I work with adults to overcome mental health issues and addiction.

I’m Accredited by the British Association of Cognitive Behavioural Therapists and the National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society. 

I am an integrative psychologist utilising a variety of modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Person Centred Therapy to name a few. 

Here are a few of the issues I work with:

  • stress management
  • increasing self-worth
  • mind/body connection
  • 12 step work
  • assertiveness training
  • mood management
  • anxiety reduction
  • empowerment 
  • work/life balance 
  • relationship struggles
  • anxiety 
  • depression 
  • trauma
  • grief 
  • divorce/separation

I have a deep passion for helping people through the emotional impact from significant life changes. 

I have helped many people heal emotional wounds, reconnect with life and move forward towards a happier life.

I am believer in holistic treatment which means I don’t believe in just treating the mind but also treating the body and soul to lead a happier and more positive life. 

Are you ready to change your life? Schedule your appointment with me today!

Feeling curious about my style and what it is like to work with me? Feel free to book a free video consultation. I’d love to learn about you and how I can help.  

I also offer clinical supervision for individuals working towards their accreditation and maintaining their accreditation with a professional body. During supervision with me, we will address case consultation, ethics and laws and personal growth as a therapist.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’ve been a therapist for 25 years where I was trained and educated in the United States where I graduated with a PysD & a Masters in Counselling Psychology. I had a successful private practice in Chicago, USA for over 15 years and worked in various mental health and addiction settings.  

I also obtained a Masters in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and graduated from the University of West Scotland in December 2021.
