Counselling/psychotherapy can help if you are struggling with something in your life which you want to change. It supports a process of personal exploration, involving learning about yourself and developing a better understanding of your life experience. This understanding can help you make changes and feel better. As your counsellor, I can help you to see and make new choices about how you live.

I am an existential counsellor in Edinburgh using a dialogue between psychodynamic and person-centred approaches. Psychodynamic therapy places an emphasis on the ways in which our unconscious mind has an impact on how we feel and behave. Using the person-centred approach, I aim to offer therapeutic conditions which enable you to explore and discover your own unique path to growth or healing.
Existential counselling is underpinned by a profound attention to simply being alive. It often involves an exploration of core themes such as meaning, isolation, freedom and death. I have also trained in Transactional Analysis (TA), which looks at how our Parent, Adult and Child ‘ego states’ impact on our ways of being.
Counselling is £60 per 60 minute hour, with the initial session free. Concessions are negotiable for clients on low incomes.
We will both sign a counselling agreement covering some formal aspects of the work before we begin therapy. You can view this Agreement by clicking here or on the image to the left.
