About Me

Do you know that feeling of not feeling good enough? 

I know I do.

In fact, I believe that we all do from time to time.

Do you wish for a more fulfilling relationship with your partner or yourself?

Perhaps you would like to change some patterns of behaviour that have caused difficulties in past relationships and are recurring in your current relationship.

Maybe you are just feeling stuck from trauma that has happened in your past and these worries are getting in the way of your future; you would like to live more in the present.

Are you feeling anxious or depressed?

If you are feeling anxious, depressed or confused about your feelings then you have come to the right place.

The relationship that you have with your therapist is very important to the healing process.

A good therapeutic relationship is built on mutual respect and trust.

It is a relationship where we join together to reach the goals you have. In each session, we will look at the presenting issue(s) and try to untangle them from different angles.

At the end of the session, you may be presented with exercises, or ‘homework’, to work on until we meet again.

Therapy is different for everyone

As no two people are alike neither is therapy.

I offer a service that is tailored to your needs. I enjoy working with couples and individuals and issues ranging anywhere from dealing with the aftermath of an affair, conflict resolution and children to self-discovery, bereavement and loss.

On a more personal note, I enjoy being outside and embracing all of the beautiful walks that Scotland has to offer. I enjoy travelling, especially visiting family in Canada – where I am from. And I also enjoy catching up for a chat with friends, old and new. In general, I want to embrace all that life has to offer and love what I get to do every day with the people I get to do it with.
