I run an independent private practice in the centre of Edinburgh where I work with individuals and couples. Prior to that I was an associate partner in First Psychology for many years and also worked in Cross Reach’s Post Natal Depression Services in Edinburgh and Mindspace in Perth.
I am a guest trainer at Physis Scotland for counselling and psychotherapy and also worked as an independent transformation manager where I facilitated large scale change in organisations.
I have worked with a wide range of issues such as relationships, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, self harm, motivation, bereavement and loss.I am also experienced in working with difficulties arising from life changes, in particular where questions of direction and meaning arise.
I have also worked with many couples resolving counter productive communication and intimacy issues in particular where mixed culture and backgrounds are involved. I have a keen interest and experience working with issues around making and having children including fertility, pregnancy, birth and parenting. My approach to working with post-natal depression have been published in the international Journal of Psychotherapy.
My background is in management and business consultancy, which enables me to understand the many demands upon those in the commercial environment.
