About Me

I gained my post-graduate qualification in counselling from the University of Edinburgh.

My training is in both psychodynamic and person-centred approaches to therapeutic practice. In brief, this means that I attend to what’s going on in the here-and-now and believe in your natural capacity for growth and I also consider unconscious processes and the possible influences of early relationships.

I live and work in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have an established private practice and I am co-founder of the art of us. I’m a counselling diploma tutor with the University of Edinburgh, and the Inclusion and Wellbeing Manager for This is Milk.

I have specific training in group analysis, bereavement, bereavement by suicide, anger, sleep disturbances, and suicidality. I also have experience working with trauma, depression, anxiety, self-harm, stress, low self-esteem, and relationship problems.
