7 Years Experience

Do you need support to cope with living in these exceptionally challenging times? Has social isolation and distancing measures created new, or exacerbated your pre-existing mental health concerns? Have you suffered loss or trauma? I may be able to help.

I am an experienced, Accredited Counsellor and EMDR Practitioner passionately believing that recovery from mental ill health is possible with the right support. I provide a safe, non judgmental space where you feel connected with, and truly heard by a fellow, caring human.

In a first session with me I will give you space to share what is important for you at your pace. We will then agree what feels right for you going forward in terms of the number and timing of apppintments. Make sure you have a private space where you won't be overheard, make yourself comfortable and bring a glass of water. Perhaps have some tissues handy, use headphones for privacy, make sure your device is charged, mic is unmuted and video is switched on.

I begin with a counselling (talking therapy) approach and work in a person-centred way, allowing you to direct your own therapy and identify a focus for our work together. As our relationship deepens in further sessions, I may draw on psychodynamic theory to explore unconscious drivers of unhelpful patterns of behaviour. Where issues are complex I may offer to help you create a timeline of important events to identify the origin of maladaptive coping strategies or trauma symptoms. If I consider it to be clincially appropriate, I may recommend EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Therapy to treat unresolved trauma which can manifest in physical symptoms such as jaw pain, head and stomach aches or panic attacks.

Sessions can be just a place to check-in and offload or provide an opportunity for a deeper exploration of your concerns. You are in charge of your therapy!

My Experience

I have worked as an associate practitioner with an Edinburgh based private mental health practice and currently manage my own private practice.

I have also managed a school based counselling service, supported parents, carers and teachers and counselled young people.

My previous experience includes over 20 years in the banking sector where I survived restructures, recessions and redundancy before retraining to work as a therapist.

My personal, painful experiences have given me a capacity for deep empathy and compassion for others' suffering. With me you can feel psychologically held, accepted as you are, and experience a healing therapeutic relationship. I look forward to meeting you.
