I am a qualified counsellor and dance movement psychotherapist with over 14 years of experience.
I believe that therapy is a space of sharing our stories and gaining a different perspective. This way we can alter old patterns and let go our 'skeletons in the cupboard'.
I also believe in the power of creativity, be it movement, story telling, images. I invite my clients in a talking and creative, curious, exploration of their worries.
From there, they can share what is most pressing and relevant for them at the present moment and make new connections and discoveries about themselves, in a journey of exploration, acceptance and appreciation of their own individuality.
I believe that only when we get to fully know our difficulties, they can become smaller.
Alongside my work as a psychotherapist, I work as a clinical supervisor and a tutor for the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling at the University of Edinburgh.
The person-centred perspective, psychodynamic discipline and Authentic Movement define my practice.
