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 while I also consider unconscious processes and the possible influences of early relationships.
I have further qualifications in group analysis, in trauma-informed therapeutic approaches, working with relationships and couples, working with suicidality, and in providing clinical supervision. I work with the Joshua Nolan Foundation and I provide supervision privately and at PF Counselling.
Some experiences I work with include bereavement by suicide, childhood abuse, depression, anxiety, self-harm, stress, sexual issues, low self-esteem, and relationship problems. For more information about therapy with me, see the Psychotherapy page.
