About me and my therapy practice

I offer confidential therapy in a private setting in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh.  As a fully qualified, experienced and insured therapist, I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

My practice tends to be mostly psychodynamic - this means thinking about underlying issues and exploring how they may link to why you feel and act the way you do.  For example, an area of focus may be how patterns of relating, learned from early significant relationships in the past, may be being repeated in the present.


Therapy happens through the conversations between us in the context of a safe, empathic and understanding relationship. We talk about anything you wish to bring; exploring how you see and experience yourself, your relationships and the world.  The aim is that getting to know yourself and connecting with yourself at a deeper level will help you make changes.

Whatever is troubling or distressing you, I believe therapy offers a chance to find a way to be at home with ourselves.
