I have been practicing for 14 years, and have thousands of hours of experience in supporting extraordinary people, like you, to make significant changes in their lives.

Each year, I engage in over 100 hours of continuous professional development to make sure my existing skills stay sharp, and so I'm always learning new resources and tools to enrich my practice, and your experience.

As a therapist, I managed a specialist trauma and substance-use counselling service in Edinburgh for many years, and have lots of experience supporting people who use substances (alcohol, drugs or over-the-counter medications), have experienced trauma, and may be experiencing mental health issues.  If you struggle with any of these issues, don't hesitate to get in touch - you will be welcomed non-judgmentally and with warmth and compassion.

  • Trauma
  • Substance use
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Self-harm

  • Depression
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Physical health problems with co-occurring mental health issues
