About me

I am an experienced counsellor working in central Edinburgh.I am a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I abide by its code of ethics. I offer a warm, empathetic, non-judgmental environment in which to explore what is troubling you. Your therapy can be short or long-term and at a time of your convenience. I am available between 8.30am and 6.30 pm on weekdays.

Whatever your difficulty I am here to help. I came into the profession as a second career so I have long experience of the pressures of the working world, of family difficulties - and of life. Whether you are feeling weighed down by anxiety and depression, have relationship problems or questions of identity, I offer a safe, confidential place where you will be listened to and feel understood.

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling from Edinburgh University (passed with distinction). It was a training in both psycho-dynamic theory (which looks at how our past has shaped us) and person-centered theory (which emphasizes our on-going capacity for healing and growth). In my practice I use both. Through continuous professional development I have also gained an understanding of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Healing happens in the relationship between client and counsellor so I offer an initial 30 minute meeting for £15 to check that we would feel at ease and comfortable working together. If for any reason I am not the best person for you, I will be happy to suggest other therapists.
