About Me

I offer solution-focused brief therapy using the Human Givens approach. The goal is to help you feel better and get functioning again in as few sessions as possible. You can re-connect to your innate resources, get up to speed on any missing coping skills, learn helpful tools and strategies. I will also assist in detraumatising, if necessary, using the effective Rewind technique.  I have over 14 years' experience in private practice and will listen carefully to your concerns, taking a holistic mind-body approach.

I also offer single-session therapy, where you focus on a specific issue as though this were going to be your only session, which may be the case. I use a combination of hypnotherapy and AIT energy work. Whether you would like any additional sessions is completely up to you.

I see clients online, as well as in-person in my office in Stirling (all week) and Edinburgh (Saturday mornings) and if you'd like a free 15-minute chat before deciding to work with me I'm happy to do that.
