About me

Well done for taking the brave step towards finding someone to talk to about what's going on with you. I'm a counsellor & therapeutic worker living & working Edinburgh with a passion for creativity, art and nature.

I'm fully qualified, integrative therapist, who works with all ages from 5 to 105. I have a great deal of experience using creativity & talk therapy,  particularly  to work with trauma, anxiety & depression. I want to give you attentive listening without judgement in a safe and confidential space.

I can offer face to face counselling and psychotherapy, telephone or zoom/video.

I enjoy working with my clients as individual, working in a collaborative manner to addresses your unique personality and specific needs. I don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach and use variety of psychological therapies and techniques. We work together to help you understand your responses to experiences and to find ways of managing them. We have regular reviews to check out how we are doing, what is helpful, unhelpful etc.

In addition to my private practice, I am a counsellor with 2 charitable organisations working with both adults and children. I also have over 15 years experience working in primary education with extensive experience using creativity as well as working with autism & additional needs. I offer open-ended counselling as well as short-term and focused therapy.
