I have worked as a counsellor since 1998.  My early experience was in a Further education college and GP practice and I worked for the 10 years within the Well Woman service in Dean Terrace (now the Lothian Sexual health service in Chalmers) offering pregnancy counselling. Since retiring from my full time career as a nurse in women’s health I have established a small private therapy practice and work as a volunteer counsellor in the Pilton Community Health Project.

I am committed to working with individuals who are troubled, or who wish to gain more understanding of how they live in the world. I believe that we are each the expert in our own life, but that we sometimes need help in making sense of it.

My training in both Gestalt and Person-centred modalities influenced my later nursing career in encouraging me to work with the whole person. Issues such as loss, low self-esteem, relationships, making choices, are better understood when looked at through this prism.

I completed my original Person-Centred counselling training in 1998, and completed 4 years of Gestalt therapy training in 2013.
