About me

Hello and welcome.

I am a qualified, experienced counsellor working in Edinburgh city-centre. I work with people experiencing a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma and relationship difficulties.

Whatever you are going through, you do not need to suffer alone. If you are here at this point then you are already taking a significant step towards writing yourself a different future story from the one you may be fearing.  I encourage you to continue that journey and find a therapist who you have a good rapport with and who you can trust.

For me, counselling is a collaborative process; we will work together to find a balance of processing the past, managing the challenges of the present and exploring how you want to move forward in your life.  At all times I aim to provide a safe, supportive environment where you will be listened to with care and respect.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked in various roles within Counselling & Psychotherapy establishments for over 10 years.

My core training was a 4-year programme in Transactional Analysis (TA) Counselling & Psychotherapy.  TA appealed to me because of the high value it places on human connection, nurture and growth, and on the possibility to re-write our stories.

I would describe my approach as collaborative and empathetic. I will work to meet you where you are and to support you with whatever you may be bringing to therapy.

Member organisations



I offer an initial assessment appointment for £25.  This is to give us the chance to meet each other and consider what it might be like to work together.

If we decide to go forward, appointments are £50 and are 50 minutes. Appointments are normally weekly and the number of sessions is agreed on an individual basis.
