About Me

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma or major life changes?

I am a highly experienced Chartered Clinical Psychologist based in Fife and I would like to offer my services to help you.

Life can feel overwhelming at times, but I am here to guide you through any obstacles you may face.

I understand that taking the first steps to seek help and talk about your problems can be daunting. My aim is to hopefully put you at ease throughout this process.

Clinical Psychologist

I have been a qualified Clinical Psychologist for 26 years and have worked as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist for 16 years. I have Chartered status with the British Psychological Society and am registered with the HCPC, the regulating body for Clinical Psychologists.

I am a warm, compassionate, approachable and empathic person. I believe that trust and collaboration in therapy is vitally important in helping people deal with their problems, tailoring my approach to meet your individual needs.

Who I see and What to Expect

I work with adults and have a wealth of expertise in helping people who experience a range of mental health difficulties. I offer both assessment and therapy for a number of common psychological issues ranging from anxiety, depression, anger and stress to trauma. This list is not exhaustive and I help people with many different issues.

I offer both in-person and online appointments. If we meet face to face, my office is a relaxed, confidential setting with a serviced reception and waiting area. I offer a safe, private and calm environment to discuss any psychological problems which are currently affecting you.

Online sessions generally take place on Zoom. Both Assessment and Therapy Appointments last 50/60 minutes.

Frequency of meetings

I tend to meet with people either weekly or fortnightly for therapy depending on their situation.

​Most of all, I want you to feel comfortable and safe enough to open up and talk about how you are feeling. Trust is an important part of the therapeutic process.

Please contact me or view my website if you would like to find out more about the services I offer.

I look forward to hearing from you.
