I worked as a GP for 20 years before re-training as a counsellor in 2010, and I love to see people heal and grow through the process of counselling.
My approach is Integrative, so sessions are adapted to suit each person’s needs which vary with, life situation, personality, and beliefs. I use a combination of person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural (CBT), creative and solution focussed therapies, creating a safe confidential space where people can be heard, understood, and supported, as they manage the issues which are affecting them.
People find that this form of counselling is effective and helps them move from feeling stuck, to start seeing positive changes in their lives. We use laughter as well as a box of tissues along the way!
I recognise that issues of faith are mixed in with life’s problems and clients can talk about these with me if they chose. My own faith is Christian but I am able to help people of any faith or none.
My passion to make effective counselling available to people, led me to co-found Hope Counselling Dundee in 2019 where we have a growing team of counsellors all committed to providing helpful, compassionate counselling.
