Saved Save profile

I am a Psychodynamic Therapist offering supervision to qualified counsellors.

I have worked as a Counsellor for 18 years, and prior to this as a Senior Occupational Therapist (in community learning disability and mental health), where I supervised junior staff weekly.

I am committed to the Psychodynamic model but also have training in Integrative Counselling, and have a good understanding of other counselling modalities. I have extensive experience in Brief work, working to a 4 -6 session model with Students (for 5+ years) and in the NHS (for 3.5 years). In private practice I offer both brief counselling and longer term therapy, including twice weekly. I have a wide range of professional and clinical experience, and have worked with a diverse range of people from different cultural and religious backgrounds (see for more information). I have my own regular supervision and keep up to date with CPD activities.

For 16 years I worked in the city of Oxford, but relocated to Edinburgh summer 2018. I currently work in a consulting room at The Southside Centre in Newington (EH9 1PY) and The Life Academy in Bruntsfield (EH10 4DW).

I offer an Initial Consultation session to talk about your needs and to decide if we can work usefully together.
