About me

Hello and welcome! I am glad that you have found your way here. Life is difficult and whilst we can often cope well with the challenges life throws at us, sometimes we find ourselves stuck and unable to get ourselves unstuck regardless of how hard we try. This is where therapy comes in. You may feel depressed, anxious, stressed, or low and may have trouble enjoying the good things in life. I offer you a compassionate, trustworthy, and non-judgmental space where you can explore, develop, learn, and grow. Please have a look at my website for more detailed information.

I'm a Counselling Psychologist and EMDR therapist, and specialise in chronic and recurrent depression, chronic and pervasive anxiety, including OCD and trauma-related issues, such as PTSD. I mainly work using EMDR and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and add other tools as needed, depending on your needs and preferences.

I focus on providing support for University students and young adults more generally, having worked at the University of St Andrews for the past 7 years, offering therapy to students struggling with a variety of mental health issues.

If you feel that this approach may be what you are looking for then please feel free to get in touch. I currently have availability on Wednesdays (online), Thursdays (face-to-face), and Fridays (online), and offer 50-minute sessions (or longer) either weekly or every fortnight. I look forward to hearing from you!

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and am a qualified EMDR therapist. I have more than a decade of experience providing mental health support for adults and specialise in providing therapy to University students. 

I qualified as a Psychologist in 2007 and in 2010, I completed a research doctorate in Psychobiology studying the stress system, which is why I am particularly passionate about working with people who experience anxiety, depression, and other stress-related conditions, as well as those who struggle with the aftermath of traumatic experiences. My approach is informed by my extensive knowledge of the physiology of the mind, brain, and body and the interplay between them.

Since qualifying I have worked in different settings, including higher education and private practice, and have a wealth of experience working with young adults and those struggling with anxiety, depression, stress and trauma-related issues.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

The clinic room is on the first floor, there is a lift available and the clinic has accessible toilet facilities.
