I have been involved in the world of Counselling and Psychology since 1994 and was mainly involved in the areas of alcohol addiction and rape/sexual assault prior to starting my own practice from GP-Plus Edinburgh in 2000. In September 2013 I moved my practice to The Edinburgh Clinic. I offer a counselling and CBT psychotherapy service for people of all backgrounds, ages and ethnic groups. I have a particular interest in Eating Disorders and have been awarded my Master Practitioner status through The National Centre for Eating Disorders in London. I offer both individual and couple counselling.

BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
