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 work with adult individuals, and supervise other therapists. I am Relate-trained and have over 15 years' experience of working directly with couples. Although this is very helpful in my work with individuals, many of whom come to me with relationship issues, I do not currently practise couple therapy.

After practising for many years in London and Sussex, I moved to Stirling in 2018. My counselling and psychotherapy practice is located near the centre of Stirling, FK8, which is also convenient for Bannockburn, Bridge of Allan and Dunblane. I am also available to clients by FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or phone where appropriate.common problems I deal with fall into a number of areas:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and panic
  • Stress
  • Guilt and shame
  • Relationship issues
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Health-related issues
  • Surviving abuse
  • Trauma
  • Finding purpose and meaning in life
  • Eco-sadness and anxiety
  • Asperger's / autism spectrum disorder
Life problems do not usually divide into such simple categories as these, and my experience and interests extend beyond this list. If you have a problem and I do not think I will be able to help, I will let you know and help you find someone more appropriate.

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

My normal sessional charge is 65, and I ask people to commit to weekly attendance, at least at the beginning of the work. I keep a couple of concessionary places for those unable to pay the full amount but, once these are full, I offer no further reductions. I generally accept clients funded by charity programmes but do not work with the large insurance companies.

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


A Post-Covid Note

I see most of my local clients in person now, and the more distant ones by video link. Face-to-face clients should be fully vaccinated and willing to work without face-masks.


An email link and my landline number are given on the left of each page on this website.
