I am registered as both a counsellor and psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). My training and experience in these fields spans nearly 30 years. This includes a transpersonal psychotherapy training with two of the developers of transpersonal psychology in the UK (Ian Gordon-Brown and Barbara Somers). Transpersonal psychotherapy is a mindfulness-based (or contemplative) therapy. This means that I am interested in working with the whole person in the context of a commitment to the therapeutic relationship, including where appropriate spiritual areas of life.
I am also trained in Brainspotting (BSP; Phases 1-3 and advanced training) for working with trauma with developer Dr. David Grand, and Positive Neuroplasticity Training (PNT) to increase reslience and wellbeing with Rick Hanson. Other training includes Somatic Trauma Therapy for Post-Traumatic Stress with Babette Rothschild, Prof. Paul Gilbert’s Compassion Focused Therapy, and the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) for the Treatment of Complex PTSD with developer Lisa Schwarz.
Specialist areas: Anxiety, creativity, depression, identity, life direction and transition, loss and bereavement, meaning and purpose, relationships, personal development, spirituality, stress, trauma and PTSD.
Appointments: 1 hour | Fee: £60
Practice locations: For the foreseeable future consultations with existing clients will be held on the telephone or via Zoom. Zoom is recognised by UKCP as a suitable platform for providing therapy online. I am currently not taking on new people. I am a partner of Edinburgh Therapy Practice
