In our space

We will explore your situation together and agree a way forward to help you. It may be that things have been bothering you for some time or it may be a sudden crisis that has occurred. Often talking things through provides a sense of relief and a greater feeling of well-being and happiness. By talking about some of the concerns that have been troubling you we can locate and understand the underlying issues in order to resolve the difficulties you are experiencing.

We will talk together about the things that matter most to you whatever they may be. Over time we will find words to make the unseen seen, the unheard heard. We will explore what your memories, hopes and fears mean to you and what they feel like. We will reflect on being you. On being you with others. We will work towards something changing.

Our first session together will usually be arranged for the specific session time that we will meet for the length of your therapy. This session will include time to check out any details and answer any initial questions you may have. We will also discuss the fee you wish to pay depending on your earnings.

About me

I trained in the 'dialogue' at the University of Edinburgh – this post-graduate qualification is an intense study of both the person-centred and the psychodynamic approaches to therapy. As my training progressed a closer affinity with contemporary psychodynamic theory unfolded and this continues to be my main guide.

I have 'grown up' with Wellspring, warmly welcomed here for my student placement and then as an intern and delighted to have joined the Wellspring community as a qualified therapist. I aim to provide a similar warm welcome to all my clients.

I have a diverse range of work experience including NHS management in London and willow-weaving in Scotland. My first degree was in Psychology followed by an MA in Health and Social Policy. I currently also work part-time as a lecturer in further and higher education in Psychology and Counselling.

I have additional training in couples counselling and further experience in the specialist area of student counselling.
