If you’re looking for affordable quality online therapy via Skype, WhatsApp, Telegram, Google Meet and Messenger video, you’ve come to the right place.
I'm a British-registered therapist, specialising in teaching my clients skills to manage stress, depression and anxiety within the context of work and personal relationships.
I’m sensible, professional and discreet.

I'm Scottish-Dutch, married to an American, and we live in Malaysia. I work with a multi-cultural client base in over 20 counties in South East Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Australasia and North America.
I hold sessions online via Skype, WhatsApp, Telegram, Google Meet and Messenger. Video conferencing means we can talk and see each other - but you don't have to travel to come and see me. It's efficient and very discreet.
I have a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Psychology from Stirling University, Scotland and a Masters with Distinction in Counselling from Open University Malaysia. I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP, number 385045). As I live in Malaysia, I also belong to the Malaysia Mental Health Organisation and am an Associate Member of the Malaysian Psychological Association.
I am an eclectic practitioner, which means I use various therapy techniques. My favourites include interpersonal psychotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy.
When we talk, I'll suggest a strategy that I think will suit you best. When there are choices of approaches, I will explain the pros and cons of each, and how they work, and you choose which you want to use.
Psychotherapy focusses on healing. Therapists are trained to recognise and treat emotional and mental health issues. Coaching does not involve healing. Coaches are motivators and accountability partners that help you reach very specific goals. In theory, the two are entirely separate. In practice, there can be some overlap. Don’t worry! If you’re not certain, we can figure it out.
Once you drop me an email, we'll have a very brief conversation to make sure the technology works for us and that we can work together. It lasts about 15 minutes and is free. If we click, we schedule sessions.
Sessions last an hour and cost US$35 via PayPal. If you are living in Malaysia, you get a slight discount and pay RM110 by local bank transfer.
I am LGBTQ-affirming. I am also an atheist. Normally that doesn't come up in conversation but if you're looking to talk through questions of infidelity, sexuality, gender, divorce, abortion and other life issues without a religious perspective, you may find that information useful.
