Hi, my name is Steve, and I live near Edinburgh in Scotland. I am a practicing Psychotherapist, who uses my Psychology and Counselling background to promote Wellbeing in the Community, here and beyond.
My life here is one of peace and finding a common good, in all we, as living beings, experience. My mission is about finding ways to overcome challenges in our world, and finding a purpose to our existence on this fragile planet. My Mindfulness studies helped me to understand more on why I am here.
My family consisting of my wife and two children are extremely important to me, and I spend a lot of my time being part of a strong and grounded family. Both my children have Special Needs, and require careful managing to ensure they get to experience as much as the world can give them in a safe and enriching way.
My youngest child is on the Autistic Spectrum, and my other child has an extremely rare syndrome, which affects less than 100 people worldwide – I set up a global support group for this, which supports parents and carers, however this is only accessible online. This was what gave me the idea to set up Change Therapy, by being able to offer something more, not just for specific and rare syndromes, but for anyone who finds that their lives are in need of Balance and a Change of direction, due to the pressure/challenges of someone in the family who is different – and I could work face to face with people too.
This means Autism, ADHD, Hidden and Visible Disabilities, Learning difficulties and many more without a diagnosis.
Change Therapy is something that I am extremely passionate about, as it is not a one size fits all approach; far from it. Everyone is unique, and we look at ways to find what therapies fit the individual rather than the opposite. I really enjoy helping people, and seek no financial reward as this is not my motivator.
I have been working with the healing therapies for around 30 years, and enjoy each and every interaction I have with people, who seek comfort, guidance and a provider of strategies to help cope with challenges in their lives.
I gained my Bachelor of Science degree, with Honours, studying Psychology and Counselling. While at University, I also completed the undergraduate course in Understanding the Autism Spectrum, which required 300+ hours of intense theory and practical study.
To supplement Change Therapy, I offer similar therapies involving Post-Cardiac Recovery, as I too am a heart attack survivor (occuring during my degree years!)
