About me

I am a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist. My private practice was solely based in Glasgow over the years but i am looking to see clients in the Scottish Borders. I am able to offer Therapy on an individual basis and Clinical Supervision to other practitioners of CBT.

I understand that coming for therapy can be daunting. And even if you have been before, meeting someone new can be challenging especially if you’re feeling out of sorts. You may be feeling overwhelmed by life, feeling stuck, lost or unable to cope.

By taking a step back from your difficulties, together we can explore and try to understand your problems from different perspectives and look at how they are affecting you. In time, this will enable you to develop your own resources and through exploring other options, find solutions to overcome short-term and long-term difficulties.

I am an approved provider of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with insurance companies such as CIGNA.

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.
