About me

I have a vast experience with Mental Health, Psychotherapy and Supervision for the past 20 years (initially overseas then in the past few years, in the UK). I worked as a volunteer; within the private sector, and as a private practitioner.

At the moment, I work in Edinburgh as an independent practitioner with Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy and Psychodynamic approaches. In the past, I have also worked as a volunteer within the charity sector with Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I worked with clients suffering from anxiety, generalised anxiety disorders, relationship issues, depression, panic disorders. Clients referring feeling sad and with family issues.

I work face-to-face, usually one or two times weekly. Short, time-limited or long-term.

Training, qualifications & experience

My background is in psychology and, in particular, psychotherapy. I have trained as a Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalytical Psychotherapist and I use psychodynamic theory to guide my work, although I am familiar with a variety of different modalities and therapeutic approaches.

I have worked with a large range of people from all age groups with different   background   and   beliefs.

I work face-to-face, usually one or two times weekly. Short, time-limited or long-term.

It is very important that you feel comfortable working with me and that I feel I can support you through you therapeutic process.

Currently I work from Edinburgh city centre as a Independent Practitioner, Psychoanalytical Psychotherapist and a Supervisor.
