About me and my therapy practice

In Edinburgh's West End, I offer a therapeutic space to explore issues which everyday life may not allow you to attend to.

Consider it a check in, to attend to those areas that you know are causing stress or anxiety which cannot be ignored.Maybe this is a time of transition, or loss, maybe you want to improve your relationships, depression or are stuck in a rut, perhaps you kow ts time to attend to past trauma–. Things that seemed long in the past are coming back in your mind and preventing you feeling at peace.

I have a special interest and training working with the boarding school experience for both adults and teens.

I work with Teens, Young adults 11 plus and parents , I offer counselling to build resilience during the teen period of change and growth, counselling both the  individual and family may be appropriate if there are signs of self harm, depression, withdrawal from activities/usual social circle.
