I am a counsellor and psychotherapist offering therapeutic support to individuals who are 16 and over.
Clients often come with a range of issues including family relationships, gender identity, employment difficulties, bereavement, eating disorders, loss and relationship difficulties.
I am psychodynamically trained, meaning that I am interested in how you are feeling in the present and how this relates to your experiences in the past. We can think together about this, learning how experiences may be felt unconsciously, manifesting as depression, anxiety or physical health issues.
Before becoming a counsellor I worked for several years in the charitable sector. I found this very interesting work and began to appreciate the possibility of change. My roles included working on a telephone helpline, as a family support worker, and as a volunteer counsellor in a primary school in Edinburgh. In addition to counselling I work for a local mental health charity. These experiences have enhanced my way of working with clients.
In our first meeting you will have plenty of time to consider whether you feel we will be able to work together. I believe that it is really important that you feel comfortable and understood.
