Welcome. Psychotherapy is a transformational healing process through the use of communication. In principle, it involves two people who collaboratively explore, illuminate and re-orientate an individual's experience of their unique world.
Based in Edinburgh, I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I practice within its framework of ethical guidelines and standards.
IS THERAPY FOR ME?
There are many reasons why people consider therapy.
I provide individual therapy for young adults and adults in Edinburgh, within short and long-term timeframes, dependant on what is required. I work to instil self-awareness, using a holistic approach to all cases and the foundation of my work is based on movement towards recovery.
If you are looking for support in making important life changes, have a feeling of being stuck or desire a more meaningful and contented existence then the first step is to carry out an initial engagement to clarify why you seek a therapist and what you are and are not looking for. I offer a free 15-minute introductory phone consultation followed by an initial appointment at a reduced rate for you to ask questions and establish whether I am compatible with your needs.
MY APPROACH TO PSYCHOTHERAPY
I work with individuals who are searching for a different kind of connection with themselves.
My guiding principles are collaborative patience, compassion, courage and commitment, from which hopes for the work can be met. I provide an environment in which the parts of a person that are rarely seen by others but fundamental to how they interact with their lives, can be freely explored.
Practising in Edinburgh, I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I practice within its framework of ethical guidelines and standards.
I use an integration of therapies and methods, creating a new therapy model for each individual, determined by their nature, willingness for change and what the therapeutic process unearths.
