About me

Whether you find yourself in the depths of despair or something just doesn’t feel right, I believe anyone can benefit from having a period where you can be listened to in confidence and without judgement. I have worked with people on issues including anxiety and depression, childhood trauma, relationship difficulties and stress at work.

I continue to be inspired by the potential for growth and healing that counselling can offer. You may be surrounded by family or friends, but find yourself slipping into familiar patterns or roles that hold you back. Or you may be feeling isolated and alone. I offer you a safe space where you will not be judged or required to be a certain way. Finding the right counsellor can be difficult. It is important that you find someone you feel comfortable working with. “It’s the relationship that heals” said Irvin Yalom, so go with your gut feelings.

I took the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling from Edinburgh University, which involved training in the psychodynamic and person-centred approaches. Psychodynamic thinking explores how our past history affects us in the here-and-now and the person-centred approach honours the inner potential and wisdom within each of us.  I integrate both into my practice. I have worked at Hope Park Counselling Centre and since 2011 I have been a volunteer at PF Counselling Agency in Morningside.

I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their code of ethics. I receive regular supervision and am fully insured for the work that I do.

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
