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-trained 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 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, Dunblane, Tullibody and Alloa. I am also available to old clients by Skype, Zoom or phone where appropriate.

The most common problems I deal with fall into a number of areas:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and panic
  • Stress
  • Guilt and shame
  • Relationship issues
  • Marital/couple problems
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Health-related issues
  • Surviving abuse
  • Trauma
  • Finding purpose and meaning in life
  • Eco-sadness and anxiety
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 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. I am registered with the following insurance companies: BUPA, Aviva, AXA PPP Healthcare, Healix and VitalityHealth.

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.


Humanistic psychotherapy… is a process of questioning all that is false in the person, and its object in doing that is to lay bare what is true in the person, in the confidence that what is true in the person is always OK.
