Hello! I use a wide range of approaches to help you, your child or young person get below the surface of what's going on for you. As a registered arts therapist, I know that sometimes words are not enough or we get lost in the talking and thinking. Creative approaches to therapy and counselling such as music, art and imagery can take us beyond the words and help us access the feeling parts of ourselves more easily. You do not have to be a "creative person" or be "good" at these approaches to benefit from them, and we can work together to find ways of exploring what might be going on for you. Plus it might even be fun!

Children and teenagers can benefit from counselling therapies, and studies show that these are hugely effective, both in the short and long term. For older kids and teens, talking therapy can provide a unique space to safely explore what's going on to make them sad, angry, or anxious. For younger children, using play and art, as well as talking therapy, can help them begin to piece together things that might be difficult for them. Life doesn't always go according to plan, and sometimes things happen that no one is prepared for - an accident, a traumatic experience, a situation no one could have foreseen happening.

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with over ten years experience within children and adults mental health settings.
Hello and thank you for looking into my profile. It can be challenging finding the right therapist amidst a sea of warm faces and shiny profiles full of experience. However, I firmly believe that like any relationship, the therapeutic one needs to feel like a 'good fit' too. This outlook forms the ethos of my therapy practice as a counselling psychologist where I work in collaboration with a client to bring change through the healing properties of a relationship. It is my belief that a supportive, accepting relationship allows for deeper self exploration and long-lasting change.

I am a kind, gentle and thoughtful person with experience of working with adults, children, and young people.
I know how difficult it can be to make a change and to start therapy. Some of us are not used to asking for help, perhaps we tell ourselves that we’re not worth anyone’s time. Or perhaps there is something that has been unspoken for a long time. If you are looking for your children then it can be so difficult to know who is best suited to help them through their issues. For all those looking for counselling I will try to make the first steps easy by offering a free half an hour to talk over the phone to discuss your needs. If we agree on making a start (short-term or open ended), we can move through the sessions at your pace.

Good therapy should be a supportive, non-judgemental and non-directive space where you feel safe to bring all parts of you and take the first steps in your journey towards wellness. I aim to offer such a space, utilising the skills I gained during my training and professional practice.

I began my study in the field of psychology - child psychology; social psychology; biological psychology; and cognitive psychology.
My mode of therapy is psychodynamic, based on Freudian psychoanalysis, where a basic, central, premise was his view of the mind. Freud’s belief intimated that some of what we experience on a day-to-day basis e.g. emotions, beliefs and impulses; takes place in the unconscious and is not available to the conscious mind. Similarly, my belief, is that the unconscious mind governs behaviour to a much greater degree than people suspect and my therapy involves deep exploration of clients’ past to access, and understand, the root cause of their problems. The emphasis of psychodynamic therapy is on the trust between client and therapist.

Child Counsellors
Child psychologists in Edinburgh, SCT provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Edinburgh build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
