About me and my therapy practice

Finding someone you feel safe to work with when you have difficult things in your life can seem off-putting or discouraging. I offer a welcoming, empathetic and non-judgemental therapeutic counselling space and adjust my way of working to suit your particular need.

I consider each person unique and part of a web of relationships and experiences that influences their present. Your well-being is my focus and I want to foster a relationship that feels caring and secure for whatever brings you to counselling. I take very seriously the trust my clients place in me and feel awed with the privilege it is to counsel. I work to provide a safe, confidential space for each person to explore issues and find positive ways forward.

Practice description

As an integrative counsellor, I weave several therapeutic approaches to tailor the counselling to each person’s particular needs, including CBT, Psychodynamic and Person-Centred.

I meet with people face to face or online using Zoom or FaceTime.

As a Christian pastor’s wife, I have 40 years’ experience walking alongside people in their life changes, loss and deep disappointments, baby loss, bereavement, abuse, divorce, crises, traumas, anxiety and core issues of self-esteem, security and significance. Should someone also want to explore the spiritual aspects of the issues they face and how their belief/faith impacts those issues, I am open to help this exploration as well.

I meet with people face to face in Edinburgh on Thursdays or online using Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime.

My first session

In the first session I want to learn what has brought you to counselling at this time and hear something of your life context for the issue(s) you face. I want to learn what your understanding of counselling is and your expectations for counselling. Lastly, I will explore some things about your mental health. I will explain how I work and the BACP’s ethical framework which underpins this.
