About me

I am an Edinburgh based Counsellor, however, as I can offer video counselling I can work with you wherever you are based.    I am a qualified Person-Centered Counsellor and Systemic Practitioner (Family Counsellor) who can provide counselling to individual adults, young people (aged 12-17) and families.

I am very much aware that you might be coming to counselling for a variety of reasons.  I will work collaboratively with you to address whatever it is that they are struggling with.  It may be something from your past or something that you are dealing with now, or both.  You may be feeling upset about a situation or feeling sad and not sure why, you may be experiencing anxiety, depression or low mood or have experienced a bereavement or loss or have family issues you want to address.  You may feel stuck or just want to understand yourself better.  I can offer you effective and individualised counselling within a safe, supportive and confidential environment. When we meet I will listen to your concerns and work with you to develop a counselling plan, including strategies and techniques that best meet your unique needs. 

I will provide you with a confidential space, be it online or at my Young Street Practice,  to be truly heard;  I think being heard is not something we often experience in our day to day lives, however being heard and listened to can enable us to make sense of struggles or difficulties and find a way to move forward, feel better and process feelings and experiences.
