About me and my therapy practice

I work only privately as a counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor mainly at Southside Therapy Centre in Edinburgh. But I do see disabled people elsewhere by arrangement. The core of my own practice is part Buddhist, part influenced by Rudolf Steiner and part Rogerian. There is a strong meditative component to it. My training included a fair element of Psychodrama so that is another influence. I work creatively, I might use my training in Dance Movement Therapy or voice-work. My focus is holistic and responsive to supervisees and clients is in relationship to themselves as unique individuals. I am not prescriptive: for some people just to sit and talk is quite enough. Some of my supervisees are managers, some are supervisors themselves and some of them have young people and children as clients. My clients come from all walks of life. I like this mix of offering therapy to clients and supervision to both mature practitioners and trainees who might start apprehensively then grow and develop during their years with me as they become mature in their own right. My fees are always negotiable with a starting point of £30.00 per hour from which I go up according to what we negotiate as appropriate. I offer an introductory hour for £10.00. My website has quite a lot of further information about me.

About me and my therapy practice

I work only privately as a counsellor and supervisor at The Southside Therapy Centre, Causwayside. But I do see disabled people elsewhere by arrangement. Southside provide a reception service most of the day five days a week. The core of my own practice is part Buddhist, part influenced by Rudolf Steiner and part Rogerian. There is a strong meditative component to it. My training as a supervisor included a fair element of Psychodrama (the origins of which are Psychodynamic) so that is another influence. I work creatively, I might use my training in Dance Movement Therapy (whose origins are also Psychodynamic) or voice-work. My focus is holistic and responsive to supervisees in relationship to themselves, their work and their training as unique individuals. I am not prescriptive: for some people just to sit and talk through their work is quite enough, especially early on in their practice. Some of my supervisees are managers, some are supervisors themselves and some of them have young people and children as clients. I like this mix of mature practitioners and trainees who might start apprehensively then grow and develop during their years with me as they become mature in their own right. My fees are always negotiable with a student starting point of £30.00 per hour from which I go up according to what we negotiate as appropriate. I offer an introductory hour for £10.00. My website has quite a lot of further information about me.
