About me

I am an experienced UKCP-registered gestalt psychotherapist working in Edinburgh, offering individual and couples therapy/counselling, training and supervision. I was a member of the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute training faculty and executive management team for around ten years until leaving in 2017 to make more space for creative and spiritual aspects of my life.

I enjoy working with people with a wide range of needs and difficulties, and I value diversity. I have particular background in working with attachment, trauma and spirituality. Please see my website for full details about how I work and for information about gestalt. My approach is compassionate, creative, relational and embodied. People often say they value my clarity, kindness and openness. I work to the UCKP code of ethics.

You are welcome to get in touch if you would like an initial session with me to explore whether we might be able to work together well. If you have any queries before that, please let me know.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
