Welcome. I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working with individuals in Edinburgh and East Lothian. I am trained in Transpersonal Psychotherapy and have been in practice since 2001. I am a registered member of UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
Counselling and Psychotherapy offer a safe space in which to share and explore experiences and feelings with a trained person in trust and confidentiality. They each offer a relationship in which to explore and uncover the difficulties and challenges connected to being who you are and with living your life in the way you might want to.

Counselling may start with areas of difficulty that you have already identified and explore ways of becoming more reflective and creative about dealing with these current issues. Counselling is usually shorter term.

Psychotherapy works at a deeper level of the psyche and may involve an exploration of patterns of behaviour, relationship patterns and long-standing issues from childhood which may be affecting the way you live your life in the present. Psychotherapy is usually longer term.

Truth is within ourselves;
It takes no rise from outward things,
Whatever you may believe.
There is an inmost centre in us all,
Where truth abides in fullness.
