About me

Hello, I am a person-centred counsellor and supervisor. I am based near the city-centre close to Haymarket Station in Edinburgh. So very handy for trains, buses, trams and with on-street, metered parking available too.

I have worked as a counsellor for nearly 20 years now and have worked largely in the areas of substance use (alcohol, stimulant drugs), mental health and trauma. I have a warm, gentle nature and offer a person-centred relationship meeting each person where they are with acceptance, genuineness and compassion. I have also worked for many years with survivors of sexual violence/childhood sexual abuse. I have a lot of experience of working with women, both therapeutically and within gender-specific services. I also have experience of working with students and young people.

Currently I work for a national charity supporting people who have concerns about their stimulant drug taking and I have a small private practice seeing clients and supervisees.

As a supervisor, I can offer both face-to-face and online working via Vsee/Zoom if distance or travel is a barrier. I have experience of supervising trainees, newly qualified and more experienced therapists. I see clients and supervisees from a quiet, pleasant space near Haymarket Station in Edinburgh.
