I offer a space to heal and make sense of whatever might be causing distress or dis-ease.
Therapy is a collaborative experience and it is my role to help you find what you seek.
In addition to my classical training and experience, I am a practitioner of yoga and meditation. This has nourished what I offer in counselling and continues to inform my approach to therapy and life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the University of Edinburgh and hold a master's degree in counselling along with their postgraduate diploma.
This training was based on a dialogue between the person-centred approach, located within the humanistic tradition, and psychodynamic perspectives, located within the psychoanalytic tradition. Both are alive in how I work.
I have extensive experience counselling NHS staff based in Edinburgh's main hospitals and clinics as well as working with clients in agencies, universities and private practice.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
A 50 minute session is £50 for individual work and £60 for couples.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
