Integrative Psychotherapist & Participation Expert
Hello, thanks for dropping by my website. I am an integrative psychotherapist who works intersectionally with individuals, couples, (polycules or open relationships) and in groups. I use my training in different modes of therapy to support my clients in a person-centred therapeutic relationship, while offering psychodynamic insight and psychoeducation. My goal is for the people I work with to feel safe and supported, while we explore past trauma, challenging behaviours or difficult feelings. I have expertise in working with abuse survivors and trauma. This can be anything from sexual abuse in childhood or as an adult, to experiencing unsafe or challenging environments and relationships.
I run a men’s sexual abuse recovery group in Glasgow, that is open to men, transgender men and Transmasculine people where members can share coping strategies, their experiences and feel, kindness, trust, safety and in control.
Outside of my clinical work, I facilitate psychologically informed research participation. This is often working across different communities, or where participation requires specialised psychologically informed practice or particular ethical awareness. I am also on the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP) Research Committee, a committee dedicated to making therapy accessible, evidence based and meaningful. I present The Trauma Talks podcast, write blogs and am a contributing writer to the BACP's Private Practice Journal, Therapy Today and Happiful Magazine. I am currently working on my first book, exploring masculinity and sexual abuse.
On this website, you will find more information about my work, as well as links to mental health resources my podcast and my blog.
