About me

I am an accredited Edinburgh-based psychotherapist with over six years’ clinical experience in both private and charitable settings. I am experienced at providing both short-term and open-ended therapy and have worked across a range of areas, including:

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

I offer both short-term (around 10 weeks) and open-ended therapy (up to a cap of three years) with clients who are 18 years of age and over.

Training, qualifications & experience


My psychotherapy training is in a mindfulness-based approach called Core Process Psychotherapy (CPP). This particular approach integrates concepts of mindfulness and awareness with modern psychological perspectives and approaches.

If you would like to read more about how mindfulness is integrated into this therapeutic approach, then you may wish to visit 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 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.
