About me

My counselling work covers many areas of psychological and emotional health – challenges in relationships and attachments with others, anxiety, depression, grief and loss; childhood abuse, trauma, neglect; impact of pregnancy, infertility, termination, miscarriage.

I am a counsellor on COSCA's Register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. This is recognition of my commitment to high standards.

I offer individual counselling in two locations - Edinburgh and Galashiels, in the Scottish Borders.

Training, qualifications & experience

I initially trained at the University of Edinburgh in both Person Centred and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from 2011-2014.

From 2015 to 2017, my training has included Lisa Schwarz's CRM models of Foundational Training, including the advanced trainings of Core Self, Inter-Generational, Dissociation, and the Intensive. My experience in practising CRM with clients, and in receiving it for myself, is that it works. Through the super strong multiple layers of internal resourcing that you will be learning and practising, this allows access for those deep wounded parts that need to share their story and be released from looping round your 'system' in the way that has influenced and limited your life so far.

From 2018 to 2019, Frank Corrigan's Deep Brain Re-orienting (DBR) focuses on the impact on the brain of adverse experiences, and having attended his trainings on DBR, I'm offering DBR for clients.

2019 Certificate in Clinical Supervision, Certified CRM Consultant

I also have a combined experience across the mental health sector with In Care Survivors Scotland and Open Secret; in education with Place2Be; in the voluntary sector with Lifeline Pregnancy and Counselling Care, and in my private practice in Edinburgh, as well as the Borders.

If you feel it's time for you to address your own trauma; your fears, anxiety, depression, PTSD from traumatic event(s), stress, eating disorders, addictive coping strategies, your sense of alone-ness, a feeling of disconnect with yourself and/or others, then do please be in touch.
