We will meet, usually weekly, in the consulting room. This is an opportunity to be curious about yourself and past or present relationships and experience. To make sense of, or to reach a deeper understanding of, self and others. As our relationship to the self changes, our relationship to others also change.
Guided meditation & object relations
This is a way of working on past trauma, adverse childhood experience, complex grief or other deeply held wounds. This way of working can help transform destructive, defensive or addictive behaviours. Working on parts of ourselves we’d like to transform or heal.
I also offer integration of experience outside of the therapy room within the structure of the therapeutic relationship and therapeutic frame. This may be meditative practices, breath work or psychedelic experience.
I practice and taught tai chi for many years and have come back to it, last year, after a break. I can offer this movement as a way of working on the body as well as the mind. Emotion begins in the body and can sometimes be stored in the body when experiences and wounds are unresolved or unprocessed, especially if they are pre-verbal experiences.
All of the above ways of working can be blended in therapy according to need.
My practice is based at 5 La Belle Place in the Park/Kelvingrove area of Glasgow. The consulting room is 10 minutes walk from Charing Cross station & St George’s Cross subway and 15 minutes from Exhibition Centre station. Several buses stop 2 minutes away on Sauchiehall Street, there is also ample on street parking at reasonable cost.
The majority of clients see me at the same day and time each week. I will consider twice weekly appointments if required and have space, or fortnightly appointments if weekly appointments do not suit you. Each session lasts for 50 minutes.
Once you’ve attended an initial session and want to continue, that time and day will be unavailable on the booking page of the website. I now request you pay in advance for an initial session, more details on the booking page.
