About Melissa

Serving Clients Since 2013


Hello! I am so glad you are here.  I am a qualified Psychotherapist based in The Scotland Highlands (working worldwide). I specialize in women’s issues such as womb-based trauma. Which includes sexual assault/abuse, miscarriages, PCOS, infertility, endometriosis, PMS, PMDD, and much more. I also do a lot of work around self-esteem, body relationship struggles and eating difficulties. I work with a lot of different issues so please reach out and we can determine if were a good fit for each other.  ​I am sure that you are going through something really hard right now and know that I am here to help. Please know that there is life beyond whatever you are struggling with, you can heal and find your joy again.


Going to therapy can be a little scary and it’s okay if you're nervous and feeling a little worried about opening up to a stranger. Getting help is really brave and I am proud of you for being here. I pride myself on creating a warm and comforting environment for every client I work with, I will never judge you or shame you.​ I have my masters degree in Counselling/Psychotherapy and I am a qualified child and adult psychotherapist. I have my bachelors degree in Human Behaviour.  I have been trained in various theoretical orientations such as CBT, Reality Therapy, Person-Centered, and Existential. I have also been trained in various skills such as play therapy, expressive arts, mindfulness, and EFT/Tapping. I pull from various theories and approach each client from a holistic point of view that values the life experiences and individual uniqueness of that person. I believe engaging the body plays a critical component to healing and I am a life-long student of Polyvagal theory.Trauma and emotions are stored in the body so a lot of my session will including breathe work, body awareness, cycle charting, and Tapping.​


I am originally from the United States and I have been living in Scotland since 2018. When I am not doing therapy related things I am hillwalking and spending as much time outside as possible. Finding a therapist that you connect with can take time, I offer a free consultation with no obligations or strings attached. More of a casual chat over a cuppa. ​
