Difficult life events and other stresses can mean we lose our ability to cope with or respond to our situation. Counselling helps you to get back in touch with your own needs and supports you in clarifying the most appropriate ways forward in your particular set of circumstances.
I have almost twenty years' experience as a counsellor, working with a wide range of clients and issues. I completed a two-year training in integrative counselling (1998-2000) and then graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Strathclyde, where I trained in the person-centred approach (2000-2002). 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 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 easy walking distance of Broughton Street and the top of Leith Walk.
