About Me

Hi, my name is Steve, and I live near Edinburgh in Scotland. I am a practicing Psychotherapist, using my Psychology and Counselling background to promote Wellbeing in the Community, here and beyond.

I am a fully trained and certified Psychotherapist, practicing Intuitive, Spiritual and Traditional psychological therapies to my clients. COSCA qualified Counsellor, and 6 years training at University gaining a Bachelor of Science (BSc. Hons) with Second Class honours, in Psychology. I describe myself as a Intuitive Psychologist in the main, however I also bring in a mix of the traditional CBT and Person-centred approaches – it depends on what is required in the moment.

I achieved my degree, but not without a massive effort, when I suffered a heart attack in my 4th year, which put serious doubts in my mind whether I could complete the degree courses. After a few months lay off, with the help of the University’s disability team, I managed to get back on track and finished my degree, and surprised everyone by going on to complete a further year studying Sociology, Counselling and Autism to finally get my Honours.

The shock of having a heart attack in my early 50’s was a wake up call, furthermore it proved to me that changing your lifestyle also changes your mind-set to a point, that the goals I set in order to recover were achievable with patience. Now 10 years later, I am still pushing boundaries and helping to teach clients that small changes to our behaviour in this fast-paced and demanding world, will result in a more positive outcome which helps alter their lives for the better.

My services are extremely limited however, as I also have a young family who need their Dad’s energy and wisdom to help guide them through the maze of life, and hopefully give them the tools to survive and flourish in adulthood.

Thanks for sharing your time here with me.

Stay safe
