When we are trying to make sense of our situation or understand ourselves, we may feel we need someone to hear us. I work with issues of anxiety, depression, grief, self-esteem, emotional difficulties, life changes, relational issues (work and personal). We are all part of an interconnected world influenced by and influencing our relationships and situations. For this reason, I give attention to your personal history, life situation and narrative.
Based in the city centre of Edinburgh I offer a safe non-judgemental space that is grounded in openness warmth and compassion. Within this space, together we can explore what issues are arising for you at present and how your past experiences have impacted and influenced how you are now. I offer a free initial session to explore what brings you to counselling and how we might work together.

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.
