Everyone needs someone to chat to and someone to listen to them.

John McNaughton
Counselling & Psychotherapy

Often life can throw things at us which can be very challenging and difficult to cope with. As a result, we may feel anxious, angry or sad. Sometimes the message, or stamp, that we have received in our early years, still has an impact on us today.

Working together, you and I can explore these challenges and the impact of the past.  We can unpack these faulty messages and find different ways of coping.

About Me

I have 15 years experience of working in the mental health sector and with people who have had different life challenges. I have a particular interest in working with people who have been affected by Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and Problem Substance Use.

How can I help?

I am experienced in creating a safe space with the people I work with, using an individualised approach that is non-judgemental, empathic and unique to you. This gives you the opportunity to explore the things in life that are troubling you, and gives you the space to make changes and grow.

If you would like to know more about the ways in which we could work together, why not give me a call.


That horrendous chapter of my life is finally closed and I will be forever grateful to John for his patience, compassion and understanding for helping to get me there.

John not only helped me through a rather dark time, but also helped me find a brighter, positive outlook on life and the ability recognise and challenge the bad days when’s they come! I honestly can’t thank John enough for what he did for me!
