My Approach

I work in both a short and long-term capacity with clients. Sessions are 50 minutes and usually weekly. I work Monday to Friday.

Whether you've had therapy before or not, coming for your first session may fill you with some anxiety - naturally. My intention will be to help you feel at ease. We will talk about what's bringing you to therapy now and what you'd like to get out of it. You may have a goal in mind. Or you may just want a safe, non-judgemental space to explore an issue, with no agenda. You may also have lots of questions about me or how therapy works. Our first session together will be the perfect opportunity for this.

My integrative training means that I would draw from a range of relational approaches and theories to support you. I believe that wounds and unmet needs from childhood reveal themselves in our present lives, whether we realise it or not. I would help you to explore these as they unfold in our sessions together. I use the word ‘together,’ because our work would be a partnership, contained within the safety of a confidential therapeutic relationship.

About Me

My six-year masters training at the Minster Centre in London was deep and life-changing. I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, UKCP-accredited (UK Council for Psychotherapy and BACP-registered (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I’m currently doing a PhD at the University of Edinburgh.

Each setting I’ve worked in has shaped and continues to shape how I would work with you. Alongside private practice, I’ve worked in the voluntary sector; namely in the Grenfell community, a bereavement service and at Mind, the mental health charity. I have also worked for an NHS staff counselling service. Prior to life as a therapist, I worked in fundraising and marketing for national and international charities.

Today, in Edinburgh, I am Practice Manager for a counselling service, I see clients privately, and I teach undergraduates and postgraduates. My research explores the intergenerational trauma of suicide in families. It’s a topic I’m hugely passionate about.
