About me

I have worked in a variety of settings including mental health services, a family centre, an HIV support service, Cruse Bereavement Care and Relationships Scotland Couple Counselling.  My most recent post was Manager and Therapist within a counselling service for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.  In addition to my generic postgraduate Diploma in Counselling I have undertaken specialised counselling training in trauma, bereavement, relationships and learning disability.

I believe my varied background has prepared me to respond sensitively to the wide range of experiences that bring people into therapy including anxiety, depression and post natal depression, relationship issues (including separation and divorce and affairs and betrayals), abuse, low self esteem, low self confidence, loneliness, bereavement and also for less specific issues such as experiencing loss of meaning or/and desire for deepening self-awareness.

I am passionate about the potential benefit of counselling having personally witnessed how it helps the people I meet find relief from their distress and achieve personal growth.  I aim to provide a warm, welcoming, professional and ethical service that provides the right conditions to enable people to find a sense of wellbeing and personal fulfillment in their life and relationships.

In addition to my practice from EH1 Therapies I also have a small number of sessions available from McDonald Road, EH7.

My website gives more detailed information. Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
