I’ve trained in EMDR, schema therapy , CBT, psychodynamic and compassion-focused therapies.
Having the right fit (“therapeutic alliance”) with your psychologist is viewed as the most crucial factor in the healing process. I would encourage you to choose a practitioner with a broad life experience as well as a clinical training in a range of evidence-based psychological therapies. A former lawyer, I practised human rights & social justice law for years in the courts in the UK. This led to my interest in psychology & trauma & therapies to overcome psychological difficulties. I’ve lived in Canada, France, Italy & Scotland and have travelled all over the world, so I hope to have a background which may help you.

A warm welcome to my profile. Have you been finding it difficult to cope with daily stressors, manage difficult emotions such as sadness, anxiety, anger, or have generally been feeling stuck in life? Taking that first step in trying to create a positive change can feel very daunting, especially when not knowing which direction to take. I am passionate about providing a warm and nonjudgmental space where I will strive to compassionately guide you in the process of working through difficult life experiences, identifying unhelpful life patterns and shifting them in order to create a life more aligned with your needs and values.

The main therapeutic modalities I draw upon are psychodynamic psychotherapy, acceptance commitment therapy, schema therapy and MBCBT.
I am a trans non binary integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, with many years of experience working in an NHS Clinical Psychology Department and private practice. In private practice, I welcome anyone who feels that psychotherapy may be of help, whether you are looking to have just a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation, or would like to consider longer-term therapy. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, illness, bereavement, self-esteem, gender and sexuality, queer identity, life-changes, are just some of the reasons why you may want to try psychotherapy.

If you're reading this, you're curious about what therapy can do for you. You might have issues with relationships, communication, family, self-worth, body image, mood, eating or sleep, or you might just be feeling vaguely disconnected and don't know why. You might want to be able to make sense of what you feel, why you feel the way you do and then know what to do about it. One thing is for sure - you'll learn a lot about yourself in therapy - how you got here, what you need, how to take care of yourself.

Talking is a wonderful way to share what’s on your mind. You may not even know what is bothering you, but by talking, it helps to get in touch with your emotions and make sense of your thoughts. Changes are often small but can be significant. Speaking with someone who is really listening and can offer a non-judgemental space to fully express yourself, improve your self awareness, and accept you for being you, can help!

What if. Two words that send your mind down a well-worn path. Words and images that pop into your head at any moment and no matter how hard you try to push it away you find yourself stuck; thinking, feeling and doing the same thing over and over. Maybe it’s reliving the past, maybe it’s worrying about the future, or feeling you need to do something right now or something bad will happen. “What if” is hard to live with. But when your mind is stuck in the “what if’s” your brain is telling you there is something you need to figure out, something you need to rebalance.

Do you often feel a sense of guilt or shame around food? Do thoughts of food become intrusive or overwhelming? Are you often binging or eating until you feel uncomfortable or sick (Binge Eating Disorder)? Perhaps you are fixated on 'healthy' or 'clean' eating (Orthorexia Nervosa)? Maybe you 'purge' by excessively exercising, restricting, making yourself sick, using laxatives, or have a history of yo-yo dieting (Bulimia Nervosa)? Perhaps you avoid whole food groups and are often called a 'fussy' or 'picky' eater (ARFID)? Or a combination of any of the above (EDNOS)? It sounds like you are struggling with an Eating Disorder!

Trauma can include life-threatening events or simply moments where you were overwhelmed and felt helpless. A troubling or terrifying event has an impact on the whole person – it is held in the body, changes ways of thinking, and often comes with an overwhelming set of emotional and behavioural responses. At times, these changes and responses are unhelpful and seriously affect people’s quality of life and their ability to move forward. Working together, we explore and come to understand your current responses. We identify tools that you can use to rebuild your life in a way that works for you.

In 2009 I received cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). It was so transformational that I decided to become a CBT therapist. I love my job because I get to witness you getting better too. Therapy empowers you with insight and self-awareness to develop sustainable change. You would only employ a plumber if you believed that they could help. It's the same with therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy has robust evidence supporting its effectiveness.

Sometimes we experience changes or traumas that leave us struggling with the pressures of life, relationships, work, or studies. This can affect our self-esteem, our sense of identity, and our ability to cope. This can become overwhelming and may lead us to unhelpful or harmful thoughts and behaviours. With help, we can overcome our difficulties and learn to manage our emotions more effectively. With compassion, empathy, respect, and a safe space, we feel heard, considered, and valued. By understanding our thoughts and behaviours we can feel empowered to make positive changes that can lead us to fuller and more enjoyable lives.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Edinburgh?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Edinburgh specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
