I am a COSCA qualified therapist trained at the University of Edinburgh in the dialogue between person-centred and psychodynamic approach to counselling. I identify myself as primarily a psychodynamic counsellor, meaning that I believe our way of being in the present can be influenced by our past experiences, relationships, learned behaviours, and often in unconscious ways.
Together we can explore, feel, think and reflect together in a compassionate way on any topic/experience that you may wish to bring to therapy.
I understand therapy to be a confidential space where one can be found and seen. A place where new insight about aspects of yourself and patterns of behaviour can become conscious, and self-awareness can be developed. A place where you can better understand yourself and your relationships.
I offer both short and long-term counselling and as a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to the BACP ethical framework.
