I am committed to personal development, and have a long-standing interest in how we move towards deeper healing, both for ourselves as individuals and for the communities of which we are part.

I offer a compassionate and respectful therapeutic relationship, in which we work collaboratively to explore how your life and relationships are shaped by past experiences and patterns. Through expanding awareness of how we think, feel and act in the world, we begin to challenge our fixed patterns and habits, opening the door to new possibilities for growth and change. I believe in the potential of each individual to heal and grow, and through my work I accompany you on your journey to develop and realise that potential. This isn’t just about resolving a problem; this is an exploratory process which can help you find a way of living which is aligned to your authentic self.

Gestalt offers a flexible approach which can take the form that best enables you to develop, incorporating levels of support and challenge appropriate to your point in the journey. This creative and experimental approach broadens our horizons of how we relate to ourselves and others, enabling the exploration of new avenues for choice and change.

I offer individual therapy in Edinburgh and Midlothian, both on a short and long-term basis. Engaging in personal therapy can seem daunting, requiring commitment and courage. I welcome you getting in touch with me for an initial exploratory session.
