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).
As well as my training as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I have over twenty years experience working with people in the fields of social care and community learning and development. I have worked with many individuals, community groups and organisations both in Scotland and abroad with the aim of enabling the people with whom I work to fulfill their true potential. I have a deep commitment to honouring the life and soul journey of each individual and group with whom I work. I am interested in the poetry and unique story that each person carries within.

I have an Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Psychotherapy from the Centre for Transpersonal Psychology in London and am a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have also followed my interests into further study in authentic movement, Chi Gung and ecopsychology.

As a counsellor and psychotherapist, I work with each individual to explore your difficulties and struggles with life and to enable you to find ways to connect to your deepest sense of self. This will include talking through your experiences and feelings but also sometimes using other means :

Working with images;
Creative/art work;
Dream Work.

Traveller, there is no path,
Paths are made by walking.
