Consultant Clinical Psychologist - Online - Edinburgh and Glasgow

Specialised Psychological Therapy with young people, adults and couples

A warm welcome to my practice

When you need it, it’s important to be able to access the right help as soon as possible. You may have concerns about your mental health or emotional wellbeing, would like to address past traumas or have noticed unhelpful patterns in your relationships. I will help you to understand yourself better and support you to make the changes you may have been struggling to make on your own.

If you are feeling worried, low, overwhelmed or anxious, or have experienced a physical challenge or psychological trauma, psychological therapy can help. I offer a compassionate and personalised approach, providing a confidential space to support change.

Who do I work with?

My psychological therapy services are aimed at couples and adults, using a range of treatment approaches including EMDR, IFS, CBT and ACT. You can read more about these approaches here. Therapy can help if you are experiencing a range of difficulties, including the following:

  • Anxiety (including obsessive compulsive issues, phobias and panic)
  • Relationship and interpersonal difficulties
  • Feeling low in mood
  • Trauma, including PTSD and complex trauma
  • Eating difficulties or addictions
  • Experiencing a physical illness that is impacting on your wellbeing

Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim.

Psychological therapy programmes

I'm currently developing a number of online psychological therapy programmes. If you were interested in finding out more, please get in contact with me. The programmes will be launched in Summer 2024.

About Me

I am warm and approachable, working in an open and active way. I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist over 24 years ago, and have experience working as a senior Clinical Psychologist in the NHS and private sector. I have held a number of NHS clinical leadership positions, including as Mental Health Clinical Advisor for the Department of Health and Clinical Lead for Mental Health Services in the South of England. I have also led clinical teams in local mental health services and worked in a range of different mental health settings. Further specialist trainings include EMDR, IFS and CBT. I am currently work online having recently relocated to North East Scotland, and work with people across and beyond the UK, including those in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

What to expect

In the first appointment I will ask what has been happening for you and what changes you would like to make. At the end of the appointment we can decide together whether psychological therapy will be helpful for you and the kinds of approaches we might use together.


The length of therapy varies from individual to individual. Some people feel better quickly and only need a few sessions. Other people need a longer approach where they can work on a range of issues over time. At the end of the first appointment we will agree some goals for the work and how many sessions I think you will need. We will also build in review sessions so we can think together about how the work is going, and whether we need to make any changes to the treatment plan.


We can meet on a weekly basis or less frequently, depending on what works for you. I often find that people like to meet weekly for the initial sessions and then less frequently as the work progresses.

Location and Fees

I offer online specialied Psychological Therapy to young people, adults and couples in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and across the UK.

I have recently relocated to North East Scotland, and I am currently working online. In my experience, working online is more flexible and is as effective as in person therapy. I would be happy to talk through how it works, and answer any questions you may have.

Assessment and treatment session fees are on a sliding scale from £110 to £130.

Fees for supervision, training and consultation are available on request.

I am registered with most of the main insurance companies. If you are insured, please contact me prior to arranging an appointment to check whether I am registered with your insurance company.

Availability

I don't currently have any availability. I am likely to be taking on new clients in late summer.
