About me

Hi. I am a registered Psychodynamic counsellor (COSCA) covering the areas of Falkirk and Stirling. I aim to provide a supportive place and relationship to allow you to explore your difficulties. It is important that you feel comfortable with me (and I with you). I see myself as a pretty understanding person but we are all different so in our initial meeting we can use the time to see if we might be the right fit for each other.

What is Psychodynamic Therapy?

Psychodynamic Counselling is a supportive journey that delves into the subconscious mind to unravel patterns, emotions and experiences shaping your present. By exploring past influences, it helps us understand how they impact your thoughts, behaviours, and relationships, paving the way for self awareness, personal growth, and positive change. This approach aims to foster insight, resilience, and a deeper understanding of oneself within a safe and empathic therapeutic space. This approach is evidence based and promotes long lasting change and improvement. In a world of quick turn arounds and results I hope to offer something different, time to fully explore what it means to be you.

I offer short and long term therapy.
