About me

I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor, based in Edinburgh , specialising in relationships and working with individuals and couples. I am also a DIT Practitioner.  Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy works with anxiety and depression over a 16 week period.  It is the only NICE approved psychodynamic psychological therapy for the treatment of depression in the NHS, a model developed by the Tavistock & Portman NHS Trust.  This way of working focuses on all our relationships and uses mentalization techniques to look at alternative ways of thinking & feeling.

I am accredited by BACP and BPC (for DIT) and I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and safe environment where our relationship is at the heart of our work together.  My training has been psychodynamic so I work with how the past influences present life experience.  I was once told that counselling is a gift to yourself, I truly believe this is the case.

ABOUT ME

Counselling is something I am confident can be of great benefit and I offer a place where you can be honest, open and talk to someone, like myself, who is not connected to your life and so will have a different relationship with you, a very meaningful relationship.

Following completion of my Psychology Degree I was drawn to working as a counsellor and took up further training, initially following an integrative model and then completing a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling.

Psychodynamic counselling places the relationship at the heart of good therapeutic work and respects the client’s inner and outer world.  When we look at how the past has affected our view of ourselves, we gain a greater self-awareness and opportunity for change.

I have gained the skills to work with couples having undertaken training and worked with many couples over the years.  I am a Registered Counsellor with Relationships Scotland.

There are many reasons people find themselves struggling at times in their life so my work with clients is diverse.  Whatever is making you think about counselling at this time, you will be heard, valued and respected.

As a member of BACP, I adhere to the BACP Code of Ethics.
