I am a qualified psychotherapist with a background in medicine. My main therapy approaches are psychodynamic and person-centred within a pluralistic framework, which means that I work collaboratively with the client and may use different approaches (similar to integrative therapy), depending on what can be the most useful for the client at the moment. I help people from diverse backgrounds with the utmost sensitivity and respect for their particular circumstances. After receiving an MD diploma in Latvia in 2003, I completed a post-graduation specialty program in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychosomatic medicine. After my relocation to Scotland in 2017, I completed the course in MSc in Counselling at the Abertay University which is BACP accredited course. I offer individual therapy for adults in English, Russian and Latvian
Anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, bereavement, self-harm thoughts/behaviour, personality disorders, relationship problems, unexplained physical symptoms and other issues.
e.g. Please note - I only work with people aged 16+.
