About me

Counsellor/Psychotherapist (PG Dip, BA (Hons), MBACP)

There are times when life feels challenging, difficult, frightening or simply ‘flat’ and it may be hard to see a clear way forward. Counselling can be a powerful dynamic for change; it offers clarity and hope by bringing focus and understanding.  The decision to enter into a counselling relationship may feel daunting, yet the benefits can be immeasurable.  Facing the reality of who we are requires trust and commitment from both client and counsellor.  Brief periods of reflection may be as helpful as longer-term work.

You may be considering counselling because you want to work on a specific problem, such as bereavement or relationship issues.  However, counselling isn’t always about resolving a problem; it can also help you develop as a person, make the most of your abilities, and find a better way of living.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the University of Edinburgh in both Person Centred & Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and offer counselling using elements from both these perspectives.  This allows me to accept the client fully and also respond to the patterns of behaviour and unconscious traits we all carry with us.

I have experience of working with adults, young people and children, in both long and short-term therapy.

I recently moved from being the manager in a counselling agency in Edinburgh to focus further on my private practice.  I am also presently the counsellor at a further education college and a school in Edinburgh.
