About me and my therapy practice

I am a Qualified & experienced Person-Centred & Emotion Focused Psychotherapist in Slateford/Gorgie. I work at your pace specialising in depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship & emotional difficulties.

There are many reasons people consider counselling. Life events may feel difficult to cope with & you may not know where to turn. You might feel unhappy, unheard, misunderstood or become stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour leaving you living with inner-conflict & anxiety.

Counsellors are there for us when we decide to take the brave step to ask for help, offering a professional & trusted relationship to confide in.

Working from a person-centred approach, I welcome you to a non-judgemental, safe space to explore what is causing you distress. Working at your pace, I would be honoured to take those difficult first steps into - or returning to - therapy & create a trusted relationship for you to share your problems safely & constructively, greatly helping to improve your psychological wellbeing.

I will listen deeply & work sensitively with the difficulties you bring to therapy. As a result, your innate ability to find the solutions that work best for you will develop & assist you towards greater clarity, self-awareness & acceptance.

My location is on the ground floor off Slateford Road with the no. 4, 44, 34 & 300 bus routes a few minutes walk away. There is free parking directly outside the building at all times. 

Please contact me to discuss this further by email, text or phone when you are ready. We can arrange a free 30 min consultation for you to decide whether I am the counsellor to help you.

I offer sessions from £40 depending on your financial circumstances.
