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’ve been here for about nine years. Besides my private practice, I am a volunteer counsellor at PF Counselling and a partner counsellor with the Joshua Nolan Foundation.
I have specific and further training in bereavement, bereavement by suicide, anger/anger management, sleep disturbances, and suicidality. I also have experience working with trauma, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, self-harm, stress, low self-esteem, caring responsibilities, disability, relationship problems, and chronic illness. For a list of concerns/specialisms that I usually work with, please see the Counselling page.
