I specialize in helping and supporting people who are struggling with their life, health or career.

As a professional psychotherapist and life coach based in Scotland, I work with clients from all over the world via phone and video calls to restore their motivation, confidence, energy, performance, and health. In my practice, I combine several proven therapy methods:

  • Ericksonian Solution-Focused Psychotherapy — A highly effective therapeutic approach that supports clients in freeing themselves from the debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, OCD, panic attacks and many other conditions.
  • Reverse Therapy — An educational mind-body process that teaches clients how to identify the triggers which prompt the body to create symptoms such as fatigue, unexplained pain, depression, anxiety and many other mind-body conditions.
  • Life Coaching — Have you lost your confidence, motivation or found yourself at a crossroads, either personally or professionally? Coaching helps clients reach their full potential and improves their wellbeing by changing mindsets and removing limiting beliefs.

Over the last 21 years, I have worked with many clients, including sports professionals and Olympic athletes. I hold a diploma in Ericksonian Solution-Focused Psychotherapy as well as several other professional certifications and qualifications.

My professional journey

My journey into talking therapy and coaching started in 2002 with a conversation between myself and a medical colleague. I had qualified as a nurse in 1987, and though I loved many aspects of nursing, I wanted to be in a job that enabled me to spend more time speaking and supporting the person in need. My friend suggested I retrain as a psychotherapist… so off I went to London and did just that.

In 2003, I qualified as an Ericksonian Solution-Focused Psychotherapist, and in 2004 I completed a course in Reverse Therapy, an innovative body-mind training that teaches clients how to interpret and act on the symptom “messages” from the body.

21 years on, I now use all the “tools” from my therapeutic training to support clients on their journey to living their best life.

Firsthand recommendations

Kathleen helped me get my life back. I was not willing to just accept that I'd have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome forever and never be able to do the things I love again like competing in weightlifting and CrossFit. A few months ago doing either of those things left me with heart palpitations, chills, extreme fatigue, and sleepless nights. Too many doctors and nutrition coaches tried to fit my symptoms into inaccurate diagnoses, and I wasted thousands of dollars trying to chase down answers. It turned out that the answers were more simple than I could have ever thought (resting more wasn't one of them!), and my body responded within a couple of days of applying Kathleen's techniques. Now I can train as hard as I want and I have a better balance of fun and work in my life. I'm so thankful to Kathleen for her help, and will miss talking and laughing with her on a regular basis.

My life has changed since my phone appointments with Kathleen. I have had M.E and crippling pains for 23 years and I now feel better than I have ever felt in my life. I am cleaning windows, hoovering, gardening, knitting and learning to crochet. I hope to start a computer course soon. Thank you so much!
