About me

I am a State Registered Art Psychotherapist, offering a confidential, warm, safe space for one to one therapy in Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders.  I offer short or long term therapy to help you explore and work through underlying feelings and issues that may appear in the form of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, bereavement, loss and life crises.

Art Psychotherapy is a creative approach which can be a gentle but very effective form of psychotherapy. Art materials can be used within the therapy sessions when you feel you are ready. The images made within the sessions are used as a medium to explore emotions/feelings. You do not need to have any previous experience or expertise in art and the images are not used as a diagnostic tool.

The following quotes are from people who have experienced Art Psychotherapy at the Creative Therapies Service, Exeter.

"It's had a profound impact.  I consider this to be the most successful thing that has happened in my mental health history. I have taken away what I did there and used it."

"I had so much benefit... real lasting benefits that I've been able to carry on with on my own, like a new way of doing things and different methods of coping. I think I got more from it than I ever thought possible."

"I've had profound and lasting benefits from this work."

Training, qualifications & experience

I currently work for an Edinburgh based charity and also practice privately in Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders.  I have extensive experience in working within statutory and voluntary mental health sectors.
