I have lived in Edinburgh for 31 years and my working life has always been committed to supporting others.This has included managing charities,fundraising, massage therapist,specialist wellbeing groupworker and psychotherapist.
I am trained in a person centred approach.Additionally I can offer an expressive arts way of working with trauma and depression, breathwork relaxation and many ways of mindfulness practice. I offer a safe space that is both confidential and non judgemental and will always offer my genuine respect, empathy and compassion.
The key quality and foundation of any successful counselling relationship is the depth of listening, holding and genuine compassion the therapist can offer always for their clients.
I have a depth of experience working with people from very diverse backgrounds and circumstances. This includes supporting people from the BME and LGBTQ communities.I also support people with chronic/ life limiting illness.
Here are some examples of the kind of situations and themes my clients have brought to our work:
*Life limiting health conditions*
*Chronic health conditions*
*Complex life transitions*
*Identity and gender*
