Difficult life events and other stresses can mean we lose the ability to cope with or respond to our situation. Counselling helps you clarify your needs so you can find the most appropriate ways forward in your particular set of personal circumstances.
I have almost twenty years' experience as a counsellor and have worked successfully with a wide range of clients and presenting issues over this time. I am fully qualified, having completed a two-year training in integrative counselling (1998-2000) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Strathclyde, where I trained in the person-centred approach to therapy (2000-2002). I also have an MSc Counselling (2011). I work within the recognised ethical frameworks of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and COSCA, and am a registered practitioner accredited by both organisations. My services are offered on a confidential basis.
My normal fees are £20 for an initial appointment, and £40 for a sixty minute session, and I work from a quiet and private counselling room on Hopetoun Crescent in Edinburgh, in easy walking distance of Broughton Street and the top of Leith Walk and near transport links.
