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.

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

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.

Member organisations


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.
