About me

My client list is now closed until early February 2020

I am an accredited Edinburgh-based psychotherapist with experience of working across a range of areas, including:

  • stress,
  • depression,
  • anxiety,
  • trauma,
  • sexuality,
  • relationship issues,
  • self-esteem.

I offer both short-term therapy and open-ended therapy with individuals who are 18 years of age and over. Short-term therapy tends to focus on a particular issue, or life event and can last around ten appointments. Open-ended therapy allows space for the in-depth exploration of a number of issues and can help build your tolerance to more challenging feelings and emotions. I offer open-ended therapy up to a cap of three years.

I also offer online therapy appointments through Skype or Zoom where it is not possible to meet in person.

I offer appointments on Tuesdays (afternoon and evening), Thursdays (morning, afternoon and evening) and Fridays (morning and afternoon).

Typically I do not see clients fortnightly at the outset, but it may be possible to meet less frequently at a later stage in our work together.

Training, qualifications & experience


My psychotherapy training is in a mindfulness-based approach and integrates concepts of mindful-awareness with modern psychological perspectives and approaches.

You can find out more about how mindfulness is used in my work on my About Therapy page.


My academic qualifications include:

  • an MA in Mindfulness Based Psychotherapeutic Practice from Middlesex University;
  • and a MSc in Psychological Science (Conversion) from the University of Glasgow.

I also have undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in engineering from universities in South Africa. I am committed to my ongoing professional development and am due to start a part-time PhD in counselling studies at the University of Edinburgh in 2019.

As well as being an accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), I am also member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).


I started part-time practice with clients in early 2012 and in 2016, became an accredited psychotherapist with the UKCP. It was at the point of accreditation that I moved fully into the broader counselling and psychotherapy field, after having studied, researched and worked in the engineering and policy development fields for almost two decades.

In addition to seeing clients privately, I have also volunteered as a therapist at a number of Edinburgh based charities, including: LGBT Health and Well Being, Gay Men’s Health and the PF Counselling Service.

I offer a no-obligation introductory meeting of up to one hour for £20. Thereafter my fee is £50 for each hour long session.

The introductory meeting is an opportunity for us to explore what has brought you to therapy and allows us to get a sense for how it might be to work together. If we proceed to regular therapy sessions together, then we will meet weekly, typically at the same appointment time.
