About me

I am a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, a Clinical Supervisor,  and a Supervisor of Supervisors. I am also a Family Systemic Practitioner to Intermediate level, and a Professional Hypnotherapist. I am fully qualified to work with individuals, couples, families and groups.

I worked in the Employee Assistance sector for the last six years and was a Clinical Lead for the Scottish Government's Inquiry into Childhood Abuse. I was also the Clinical Lead for Police Scotland's trauma support work. I carried out mental health and trauma triage assessments on a daily basis, and offered telephone counselling using CBT,CCBT and SFBT approaches. I also carried out Vicarious Trauma/Psychological Wellbeing Resilience Assessments, Critical Incident Trauma Debriefing and Consultative Support Work, and have worked on several high profile incidents.

Currently I am employed as a part time CBT Therapist and Clinical Team Leader. I am also responsible for managing and reviewing risk cases ranging from low, to high and immediate risk , self harm, suicide, domestic violence and child protection issues.

I have a private practice in the evenings where I speak to clients with a variety of issues by telephone or Skype/VSee/Teams Platforms and also offer Clinical Supervision to other therapists. I have recently worked for the NHS using their online platform delivering CBT via instant messaging.

I enjoy training and have experience in facilitating monthly Clinical CPD sessions and group supervision.

Further information

Please feel free to give me a call to discuss how I can meet your needs. If I am busy I will aim to call you back within 24 hours. From there I will take your basic contact details and you can tell me briefly why you have called. If we agree that we can work together I will send you a contract to sign and assessment form which is standard practice, and which will outline how we will proceed. If you are happy with this you can send me back the contract and assessment form via email and we can begin. I usually suggest we start with 6 sessions and review at the end to see if more are required.

All payments can be done via internet transfer in advance to secure your appointment slot. I want to make accessing therapy as flexible and as easy as I can for you.

If for any reason I can't work with you I will sign post you on to an organisation or back to your GP as some issues are not best suited to brief therapy and require longer term specialist work.

If you are at low risk to yourself (thoughts of suicide or self harm) or to someone else please seek additional support. I can work with you if you are having thoughts of suicide or superficially self harming, but not if you have a plan or intent to complete suicide. I do not offer crisis support and all sessions are pre booked. If you are at high risk to yourself (have thoughts, and a plan/means) please contact your GP or 111 if out of hours, or The Samaritans on 08457 909090. Alternatively if you are at immediate high risk (have thoughts, a plan, means and intent) please present at A&E or call 999 urgently.
