About me

*I am now offering Outdoor Therapy sessions in South Lanarkshire, North Lanarkshire and parts of Glasgow.*

Do you feel like you're struggling, overwhelmed, unable to concentrate, the days are tough perhaps they feel long and intense but when you get outside you feel like you can breathe, feel like there's some sort of escapism or your stresses become less intense?

There can be many reasons you are feeling like this from bereavement & loss, trauma, complex family issues, low self-esteem, anxiety & stress plus many others.

All of the above feelings and experiences can feel overwhelming and you're struggling to catch a breather. The world is moving too fast and you need it to just stop for a moment to figure it out or try and make sense of what's going on so you can respond how you want too and not like it's out of your control.

Therapy is effectively the time to pause, to get you back in control of your life, where your life is your own and one you want to be part of and have the freedom to flourish and grow.

I am a fully qualified and accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with extensive experience in Face to Face, Online and Phone counselling. Whether your sessions are outdoors, online or on the phone, I am committed to providing a warm and supportive environment where you can explore, heal and thrive.  Granted I might not be able to guarantee warm weather if we are working outdoors especially as our sessions are located in Scotland however we can wrap up with layers and my hope would be that you feel the warmth and support through my sessions which offer a friendly, safe, supportive non-judgemental space whilst I actively listen and guide you to create space whether that is to allow you to explore your challenges, struggles or deepening your self-awareness, your well-being is my top priority so I am here to offer compassionate guidance and help you navigate through your struggles and walk alongside you on your journey to wholeness.  

Face to Face sessions are delivered outdoors in a number of Country Parks located around South Lanarkshire, North Lanarkshire and some areas of Glasgow, connecting with/in nature can be a very effective strategy for your mental wellness as it can reduce stress and anxiety levels, boost your mood and self-esteem, along with creating an element of space which improves focus, attention, allowing space for problem solving/ creating a solution as well as aiding your physical wellbeing by reducing blood pressure, heart rate and muscle tension.  Please reach out via hello@therapeutic-minds.co.uk or calling/messaging/whatsapp on 07359 069678 to book a session or for further information feel free to explore my website https://www.therapeutic-minds.co.uk/  where you can also get more of a feel for me or more information on the areas I can support you with.

I understand outdoor therapy is not for everyone so I also offer Online and phone sessions which are still extremely beneficial and offer's convenience for those who are restricted by work or family commitments and allows you to create a safe and comfortable environment that suits your needs.  Online and telephone sessions can also be booked via hello@therapeutic-minds.co.uk or calling/messaging/whatsapp on 07359 069678 to book a session or for further information feel free to explore my website https://www.therapeutic-minds.co.uk/ where you can also get more of a feel for me or more information on the areas I can support you with.
