I am an Gestalt Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working with clients since 2015. I offer Counselling & Psychotherapy in an environment that best supports you, this may be face to face, online or outdoors. ​

I am a member of UKCP and BACP.


Support That Makes a Difference

I am deeply invested in therapeutic work. I believe in the value of offering a safe space where you can explore in a meaningful way. Together, we can deepen awareness and understanding, giving attention to your experiences with support and care.  


I have experience of working with many different issues including: 

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Chronic Illness

  • Stress

  • Gender, sexual and relationship diversity (GSRD)

  • Anxiety

  • Grief and loss

  • Isolation and loneliness

  • Trauma​​

I am committed to working in a safe and responsible way. As an accredited member of UKCP, I follow a rigorous and professional code of ethics.

Making the first step in your counselling journey is a brave step. Having been a client, I understand how challenging it can be to make those first steps.


It is not easy finding the time in such a busy world, or to find the means in such challenging economic times or to face a stranger when feeling vulnerable.


However, when you arrive, there will be a calm and safe welcome for you. We will spend time getting to know each other and discussing a way to work together. If we agree to work together, we will discuss a working contract to help keep us both clear. This is a chance to talk through your queries that you may have about our work together.

I carried out my core training in Gestalt Psychotherapy with the Edinburgh Gestalt Institute. I have since taken up a number of advanced training opportunities to support my ongoing development as a therapist. I have also attended training in a number of specialist areas including working with children and young adults & solution focused therapy and outdoor therapy. I remain highly motivated to learn and develop both professionally and personally. 

I have been working with client's since 2015 in the voluntary sector and in private practice. I have also worked within schools supporting young people. 

I taught Counselling at Perth College, UHI for six years. I am deeply passionate about group work and it's potential for creativity, authenticity, empathy, challenge and acceptance. 

Prior to my training in Gestalt, I worked in academic research in psychology and health.

When I am not working, I like to spend time outdoors with my dogs. Having  recently moved from Highland Perthshire to Edinburgh, I have been soaking up the seaside life just on my doorstep. As I face into an  empty nest, I am drawn to quieter moments of reflection and growth.

I have a mindfulness practice that supports me to stay balanced and present in my daily living. I am committed to my ongoing personal growth and self care. 

I have regular supervision with an experienced supervisor, who supports my work through constructive challenge and guidance. I am committed to working as an ethical practitioner in counselling.

Do you feel more comfortable outdoors?

For many being outdoors is good for the soul. Fresh air and the smell of rain, wood and soil that can soothe your senses and deepen your connection to the environment around you. If this sounds good to you, then we can arrange to meet outdoors. For more information on this way of working, please get in touch for more information.


Contemporary Gestalt Therapy originates from the work of it's founders, such as Fitz & Laura Perls in the 1950's. Gestalt- is a deeply relational, creative and compassionate approach, where support is key. 

As a Gestalt Practitioner, I am interested in your experience. By offering a safe environment and an authentic relationship, we can begin to understand more about ourselves and how we relate to the world and each other. Healing can occur when we experience something new and, by understanding the ways in which we have coped and adjusted over time. The depth of connection between client and therapist offers rich ground for real therapeutic work to occur.

Can I find out more before first?

Yes. We can have an initial discussion on the phone or face to face to answer any questions that you may have and to find out if counselling/therapy with me is the right step. 

Hope  is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without words,
And never stops at all.

Emily Dickinson

The Peace of Wild Things

 When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drakerests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.  Wendell Berry
