About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced BACP Registered Accredited counsellor based in North Edinburgh, EH6. I believe it is important that you find a counsellor in whom you have confidence and with whom you feel comfortable. I offer an initial appointment at a reduction of my normal fee offering you the opportunity to meet me and help you decide if i am the right counsellor for you.  I can be easily reached by public transport and there is also free on street parking. 

I have experience in working with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, abuse, bereavement, loss, trauma, sexual identity and relationship difficulties. Over the last 15 years I have worked at a University counselling service, with a number of Employee Assistance Programmes, and run my own private practice.

Trained in the person-centred approach I have a deeply held belief that we each have within more wisdom to support ourselves through the stuck and painful places than we can possibly imagine. I love having the opportunity to meet with each unique individual and the chance to work together to unlock that hidden potential which can be the guide to a more fulfilled and authentic life.

Initial one hour appointment £25

Ongoing hourly session £50-£60
