About me and my therapy practice

I trained in gestalt psychotherapy at Edinburgh Gestalt Institute (2005-2009) and have been working as a gestalt therapist in private practice for 6 years. I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for University of Edinburgh Student Counselling Service and Couple Counselling Lothian. My background is in the arts, human resources and organisational development. I am an Assistant Supervisor on the diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy training programme at Edinburgh Gestalt Institute. I am a trainee member of GPTI (Gestalt Psychotherapy & Training Institute) and adhere to their Code of Ethics and Professional Practice. In accordance with this I am fully insured, participate in regular clinical supervision and undertake ongoing advanced personal and professional development. I am currently working towards further professional accreditation with GPTI and registration with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy). I am passionate about supporting people to find their own rhythm, pace, felt-experience and place in the world. I enjoy working respectfully with body awareness, attention to the here-and-now, and I'm interested in exploring clients' histories, ways of being and cultural differences. I am also committed to my personal and professional growth and development and enjoy bringing my learning into my work. I work from Edinburgh Gestalt Institute on Lothian Road and offer daytime appointments.
