About me

I am an Internationally qualified and highly experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working in private practice in Newington, Edinburgh. I work with adults and young people, in person or via telephone or Skype. I am experienced in working with people from a wide variety of countries and backgrounds.

I have an integrative approach, drawing on several approaches depending on your needs.These include person-centred counselling, cognitive-behaviour therapy, solution focussed therapy, and 12-step facilitation therapy.

My training includes a Diploma and BA (Hons) Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychology. I am currently undertaking a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology with Glasgow Caledonian University.

I have experience in working with a broad range of issues, including:

  • Addiction & recovery
  • Adolescent issues
  • Behavioural issues
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Emotional issues
  • Grief, loss and other life changes
  • Relationship issues
  • Self-harm
  • Stress
  • Weight & body issues
  • Work issues

Training, qualifications & experience


  • Diploma in Counselling and Communication (Australian College of Applied Psychology, Australia)
  • BA (Hons) in Counselling and Psychotherapy (University of Southampton, UK)
  • Graduate Diploma in Psychology (Open University, UK)
  • Currently enrolled on D.Psych in Counselling Psychology ( Glasgow Caledonian University)


  • Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
  • Member (MBPsS) of the British Psychological Society (BPS)


I was previously an independent counsellor in private practice in Fontainebleau, France and in Sydney, Australia, working with adults and young people for a wide variety of personal, relationship and work-related issues.

Prior to that, I was a counsellor at ‘The Priory’ in England – a major private psychiatric hospital and part of Europe’s leading independent provider of acute mental health services. During this time I worked with clients with addictions (alcohol, drugs, behavioural), behavioural issues, depression, family problems and other relationship and mental health issues. I have several years’ experience in working with people recovering from alcoholism and addiction in 12-step fellowships and so I am happy to work with this framework as an approach to recovery.
