My Approach

An embodied and resource-focused approach to Transpersonal and Integrative psychotherapy.

About Me

I am a UKCP Registered and Accredited psychotherapist and counsellor, working with individual adults in Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders, and online. I have an Integrative and Transpersonal approach to therapy, and can use different methods and perspectives as appropriate in therapy work, according to what is needed and indicated for the individual. "Transpersonal" means beyond the personal, taking a spiritual, more holistic approach to therapy and healing. I have lived and travelled in India and also spent many years training in traditional martial arts, Yoga, Sufi Healing and Sufi meditation methods - all of which may influence and inform my work as a therapist. I am interested in dream-work, and the use of creative imagination and visualisation, and often utilise breathing and relaxation exercises, and meditative techniques as appropriate.

Additionally, I have a Diploma in Stress Management (using Cognitive-Behaviour methods) and I have also trained in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and more recently in trauma therapies. My particular areas of interest are in spiritual/transpersonal concerns, meaning and purpose, stress-related illness and burn-out; trauma; anxiety and depression; and life-transitions. I have previously worked as a MH counsellor for a specialist mental health service in London, which included Crisis-work and mental health outreach work, MH training, and community-based work.

I am currently in the second year of a three year training in the Realization Process, which is an embodied approach to spirituality, resilience, wellbeing, relationships and trauma work.
