About

I am an HCPC registered counselling psychologist, chartered accountant and actuary. My main therapeutic training is in CBT and Person-Centred Therapy, but I also use techniques from other methods like DBT, Mindfulness-CBT, Schema Therapy, and Trauma-Focused Therapy. I have worked with many people dealing with challenges like depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship issues. I have a special interest in the growing field of financial therapy and am keen to help clients who would like to explore any psychological issues impacting their financial health. I believe in a flexible and holistic approach. Every person is different, so I adjust my techniques to what each client needs. A big part of my work is about teaming up with the person I am helping after conducting a thorough assessment. We work together to figure out what is going on and to set goals.

For me, a strong, trust-based relationship with my clients is key. I want everyone I work with to feel safe and understood. I endeavour to be as non-judgmental as possible and supportive, and I genuinely care. On the research side, I am interested in topics like long-term health issues, therapy outdoors, and the experiences of neurodivergent psychologists. Currently, I offer sessions online and in person from my home in Jackton, near Glasgow, Scotland, UK. I am insured to accept clients globally.

I have come to psychology as a second career, combining this with occasionally still providing consultancy in finance as an actuary. I have a degree in Mathematics from Oxford University and am an experienced and fully qualified actuary and accountant. I have 20 years of experience mentoring and coaching finance professionals throughout my career, as well as volunteer work coaching young adults in higher education. I have worked as a psychotherapist in charity settings and a large private practice. I have also experienced living and working overseas for 10 years and the need to adjust accordingly. I have encountered people from all walks of life and deeply respect anyone who wants to work on themselves and explore their life experiences through therapy

Please note I use WhatsApp, FaceTime, and MSTeams for online work.
