I am an experienced counsellor who works with individuals and couples in Edinburgh and Penicuik.
I offer a confidential, safe space to work through your concerns and the feelings that come with them.
My clients are aged 16+ and are from a diverse range of backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientation and gender identity. I have specific training in couple counselling, relationships, family systems and sexual issues.
Some of the concerns I work with are:-
Individual & Couple relationships:- communication, affairs, separation and divorce, arguments, loss, anxiety, depression, bereavement/loss, stress, chronic pain, redundancy, menopause.
Sexual relationships:- erectile issues, premature/delayed ejaculation, loss of desire in men and women, vaginismus, dyspareunia, anorgasmia, sex addiction and porn addiction.
I will do my best to offer you a prompt and suitable appointment so that we can plan an initial meeting to explore your concerns and decide the best way to work together.
