You may well be tired of pretending everything is ok, when you know things don't feel right. Or you may have a specific issue you want help with. As a qualified and experienced psychotherapist, I can offer you time and space to explore some of these thoughts and decide whether therapy is for you. I offer a free initial face-to-face consultation to help you decide whether you would like to proceed with therapy.
I see therapy as working best within the support of a trusting, collaborative relationship and can offer you a place where you are safe to explore events and feelings from your past and present which are holding you back. Life can be really tough and having the chance to talk through what is going on for you with a qualified therapist, who offers you their full and undivided attention can be a real opportunity to start feeling more alive and in charge of things.
Starting therapy can be daunting and so in the first instance, I aim to help you feel at ease and supported in telling me about what has led you to seek counselling and psychotherapy. Through the establishment of a a trusting partnership, we would then begin to make sense of your problems together, how you see yourself, the world and your place within it. In working towards discovering more of what is emotionally true for you, the aim is that you develop further inner resources that enable you to think about what, if any, changes you wish to make.
You set the pace in therapy, I am there to act as a guide and work alongside you in your discoveries rather than give advice and be the 'expert'.
In my private practice in Glasgow's Southside and in the city centre, I offer both short-term goal-orientated counselling and more in-depth psychotherapy for adults experiencing a range of emotions affecting their quality of life.
