About me

I am qualified to practise as a counsellor for individuals and couples, also to work with children and young people using play therapy, creative therapies and counselling. I can also offer supervision of counsellors working with adults and with children. I have been practising for 25 years.

The quality of the therapeutic relationship is essential for people to achieve lasting change and the importance of regular weekly, hour long sessions helps the relationship to build and ensures the safety of this creative space.  

The counselling I offer takes place in a private room near Canonmills and Stockbridge in Edinburgh, it is easily accessible by bus and there is free parking.
