About me and my therapy practice

I'm a psychodynamic psychotherapist with a private practice offering confidential therapy online and in-person in Edinburgh.  Fully qualified, experienced and insured, I am also a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Working psychodynamically 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 feel and experience yourself, your relationships and the world.  The aim is that getting to know yourself, your needs and connecting with yourself at a deeper level will grow your self-awareness and help you make changes towards a more satisfying life.

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

Practice description

I offer a therapeutic relationship based on values of trust, empathy, honesty and mutual-respect. I seek to offer you a safe confidential space in which you can talk about whatever is troubling you - thoughts, feelings, behaviour, experiences (even your dreams). I will meet with you as often as we agree, although at least weekly.

My first session

I offer an initial meeting where we explore what you are hoping to get from engaging in the therapeutic process. We will think about what you are looking for and whether the way I work may be helpful to you.
