About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome.  I have been working as a counsellor and therapist for over 20 years and am passionate about my work. 

I find that people often come for counselling and therapy when they have exhausted their other resources and still feel unable to move forward. 

I am completely committed to supporting you to navigate your difficulties, using my years of knowledge and experience, and my calm and unhurried approach. 

I am a psychodynamic counsellor which means that I will think about your whole story as well as the things that are currently affecting your day-to-day life.

I have a breadth and depth of experience and currently the bulk of my work is with young people aged 17-30. 

I offer both short-term counselling (up to 12 weeks), and long-term therapy which will continue for as long as we feel is relevant. 

I am an accredited member of the BACP and work within their ethical framework.  I am a qualified counselling supervisor and I hold an MSc in Counselling Studies.

Practice description

I run my private practice from a comfortable room in the West End of Edinburgh, where you will feel safe and secure and where we will be free from interruption.

My therapy room is on the third floor; if you have restricted mobility, please let me know and we can discuss the option of telephone counselling.

My therapy room is within walking distance of public transport links.

My first session

The process of getting started with counselling can feel daunting so it's good to know what to expect.  

The first step is to get in touch with me.  Please provide a brief summary of why you're looking for counselling. 

I will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange a free 20 minute telephone conversation. 

If we decide to work together, we will arrange a regular time and day to meet for weekly sessions. This will be your allocated time-slot every week.

At that stage I will ask you to fill in your contact details and an emergency contact, and I will send some additional important information relating to procedures.

I look forward to hearing from you.

(NB unfortunately I am contractually unable to work with anyone who is currently a matriculated student at Edinburgh University)
