About me

Welcome and thank you for looking at my therapist profile.  I am offering Psychotherapy in Edinburgh. I specialise in a therapy which gives an opportunity to understand and transform feelings/experiences. I have been working as a Psychotherapist for over 10 years and regularly keep myself up to date with psycho dynamic current affairs. I enjoy the work I do and I take great satisfaction when I work with someone, particularly when they experience change and inner freedom to their difficulties.

The therapy is a journey that allows resolution to difficult problems, offering space to think, explore and discover. Participating in dynamic therapy will not only change how you feel about yourself, it will offer transformation in your relationships, working life, interactions and giving you a lasting change. 


If you email me I would be happy to organise an initial consultation. The initial consultation is at a concessionary rate of £30 for 50 minutes. The session will give you a sense of me, how I work and if you would like to participate in the therapy.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
