A Bit About Mary

After a career as a teacher working with children with emotional and behavioural difficulties, Mary fulfilled a long-held ambition to qualify as a Psychotherapist. She has a degree in Psychology from Dundee University and a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. 

After qualifying as a Psychotherapist, Mary worked for the Survivors Trust for three years. This is an organisation that works with victims of sexual violence and although the work is not for everyone, Mary found it immensely fulfilling and this kind of work continues to be a particular interest. She also worked for a local community group taking clients for both counselling and psychotherapy with a range of difficulties.

Mary strives to offer; 

  • A very open and honest space to discuss your needs

  • A relaxed environment where we work at your pace

  • A client led service where we talk about what you feel needs to be discussed, trustworthiness with an ethical and moral commitment to confidentiality

Client Testimonials

"I had a need to come to therapy as I had an internal need to take care of myself due to an extreme history of childhood and adult trauma. I have a background in the caring and education provision. I had a high level of academic and psychological awareness and understanding of my traumatic history, but I did not realise how disconnected and dissociated I was with my childhood and my true feelings and sense of self.

Mary was awesome in being able to make me be at ease and with a straight talking attitude, which I needed, I was able to be open and honest about my life and crucially open up about my true experiences.

I explored the concept of the wounded healer, dissociation, inner child, and being a victim of neglect, physical and sexual abuse and other ACEs. I was able to work through with Mary how to reconnect with the little boy in me and run away teenager. I cried and cried and laughed and rejoiced over the last couple of weeks. I am so grateful for the reconnect to my emotions, body, and knowing the way to heal each day and most of all practice being the authentic me. I feel today after 9 weeks like a weight is off my shoulders.

My anxiety and panic attacks have significantly reduced and I have completely stopped all medication.

Thank you Mary, I wish you well. Enjoy each moment and each day as I will as me."

"Mary helped me overcome my anxiety and intrusive thoughts. She was very professional, personable and really helped me to understand my challenges; guiding me through them. I feel so relieved to have had this therapy - I gained confidence and a sense of self-belief that was missing prior to all our sessions. I liked Mary's approach to therapy. She is a wonderful person, and I felt she really understood me and listened to the issues I had with empathy and compassion. I would definitely recommend Mary to anyone."
