I was born in Bowmore on the Isle of Islay in 1968, and although my family moved away when I was only a baby I go back every month to visit and wander the beautiful beaches and coast of the island.
In 1985 I trained as a nurse in the north of Scotland and worked off and on (between having my children) for 10 years in a variety of wards and departments.
After having my 3rd child I went to Dundee University and gained a Certificate in Education, but decided I didn't want to work in schools and had a total re-think about my career.
It was at that time that an ex-colleague & dear friend of mine suggested I train in Ericksonian Solution Focused Psychotherapy - which I did! This is where I met Dr John Eaton, the founder of Reverse Therapy. On completing my Diploma at Regent's College, London I then went on to train in Reverse Therapy, qualifying in 2004.
In 2006 I was asked to pilot delivering Reverse Therapy by telephone to individuals unable to receive face to face consultation at a clinic. I am delighted to report that 10 years later I had successfully treated clients from Australia, USA, Canada and Hong Kong..and even more interestingly their recovery rate was the same as face to face work, returning to health within an average of 3-6 sessions.
During my 14 years as a reverse therapist and solution focused psychotherapist I have worked with several hundred clients presenting with a variety of conditions ranging from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, addictions, IBS, chronic fatigue and more.
I have also worked with several amateur and professional sports people on reducing their performance anxiety and improving their sport performance.
Do get in touch and let me teach you how to apply strategies and techniques to help you get well and stay well.
I look forward to working with you!
