Counselling, Psychotherapy and Couple Counselling in Stirling


I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). My approach is broadly-based and integrative, drawing on transpersonal training. I am also a qualified Relate couples counsellor, and an EMDR therapist (see What Type of Therapy Should I Choose?).

I work with individuals or couples, and supervise other therapists.

After practising for many years in London and Sussex, I have relocated to Stirling in Scotland. My counselling and psychotherapy practice is now near the centre of Stirling, FK8, which is also convenient for Bannockburn, Bridge of Allan, Dunblane, Tullibody and Alloa. I am also available to old clients by Skype or phone where appropriate.

The most common problems I deal with fall into a number of areas:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and panic
  • Stress
  • Relationship issues
  • Marital/couple problems
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Health-related issues
  • Surviving abuse
  • Trauma
  • Finding purpose and meaning in life
Life problems do not usually divide into such simple categories as these, and my experience and interests go well beyond this list. If you approach me with an issue where I don't think I would be a suitable person to help, I will let you know and help you find someone more appropriate.

If you are looking for psychotherapy, counselling or couple counselling in Stirling, Bannockburn, Bridge of Allan, Dunblane, Tullibody, Stirlingshire in general or Alloa, my contact details are on the About Me/Contact page.

I normally charge 40 per session for an individual session and 50 for couple counselling in Stirling, and will consider a reduced fee in cases of financial difficulty.

On the intervening pages I have put some information on choosing a counsellor, psychotherapist or couple counsellor, and tried to answer some of the questions that may occur to you.


It's not too difficult to get the skeletons out of the closet with people, but to get the gold out is a different matter. That is therapy. Psychology is the art of finding the gold of the spirit.
