If you feel that your thoughts or feelings have hijacked you and are affecting the way you live … then it may be time to do something about it. As a qualified and experienced therapist, I am keen to help you decide whether therapy is for you or not.

We do this, primarily, through creating a place to explore thoughts, feelings, wishes, longings, reactions, and experience. Developing a relationship marked by confidentiality and respect will be important to hearing your story. People come to therapy for different reasons. You may not be clear about what it is you need or want to work on, or you may be in touch with strong emotions and reactions that you know you need help with. You may explore things that have happened recently or things you have been managing or struggling with for years. Making sense of how we are and our relationship with others can leave us feeling overwhelmed, confused and on our own. The stigma of needing someone else’s help can often stop us from doing the very thing that could support us to manage more effectively, live more fully and make healthier choices in our lives.

Gestalt Therapy is not just an effective mode of Psychotherapy; it also offers an approach to living that supports our curiosity, creativity, resilience, and desire for a full and satisfying life.

My background is in Biology, the Arts, and Social Work/Education. I have a busy private practice working with adults, adolescents, and children. I have worked as a trauma therapist for a large Children’s charity and as a therapist at Edinburgh University’s Student Counselling Centre.

I offer individual, couple and family therapy and offer Supervision, Consultancy and Training on a wide range of issues and interests. I currently co-facilitate the Fortnightly Therapy Group based at EGI

I am an accredited (UKCP) Gestalt Psychotherapist. I am a member of the Gestalt Psychotherapy and Training Institute (GPTI) and am governed and adhere to their code of practice and ethical code. I engage in ongoing personal and professional development to ensure a high standard of therapeutic practice. I attend monthly individual and group gestalt supervision. I continue to develop my skills and knowledge through attending workshops and training events.
