About Me

I am a professional counsellor, offering confidential counselling and psychotherapy to individual adults. I work with clients from many diverse walks of life, cultures, genders and sexual orientations from a sex-positive and gender-affirming standpoint. I am committed to working in an inclusive way that both accounts for and values diversity.

Before training in counselling, I was a Lecturer in Music for many years (University of Edinburgh) and have found my experience in Music to have a great deal of relevance to counselling, as much of music making is about listening and about finding resonance with other people, becoming attuned to them.

My Qualifications

I have a Diploma in Counselling in Transactional Analysis awarded by Physis Scotland, a COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills and a Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD).

Personal development is very important to me and is something I prioritise. I have a very wide range of academic qualifications in a disparate range of disciplines (Music, Film, Law, Science, Informatics, Biotechnology, Botany, Horticulture), and regularly undertake CPD.

My Professional Affiliations

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland (COSCA), the UK Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA), and the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH).
