About me

I'm an experienced and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with over ten years experience. Turbulance in our inner world and in our lives often 'show's up' as anxiety or depression along with other symptoms - if you are experiencing this kind of personal suffering and discomfort then counselling can really help .Call or email to set up an initial session. An initial consultation will give you a chance to talk about your main concerns, focus on what you want from counselling, and help you decide if you want to work with me.If you're happy to continue then we can arrange further appointments.

Trained in person centred counselling and trauma work I integrate different ways of working in response to what comes up during sessions building a safe therapeutic relationship where you can feel free to explore at your own pace. My role is to help you explore, discover and clarify ways of living your life with a greater sense of wellbeing.

Long, medium or short term counselling offered for anyone over 16 years old . I also offer counselling supervision.

I work in Edinburgh, Penicuik and the Scottish Borders and offer appointments during the week and also at weekends and some evenings

Counselling with Mandy gave me back my life. My mind had spiraled out of control due to unresolved issues that had accumulated over the years and had resurfaced with the death of my beloved father. Mandy made it easy for me to understand what had happened in my brain, then had given me some powerful tools to deal with the stresses I was under at the time. Along with her patience and empathy I found it easy to open up and talk through some childhood parenting issues. At 52, therapy was not at first easy to associate myself with. I thought that I could heal myself. This was not true, I couldn't and by the time I found Mandy I was in a real mess. A mess that could have been sorted out so much sooner. If you are reading this, give yourself the tools to not only understand but heal. Give Mandy an email.
