About me

Sessions in Edinburgh and East Lothian (Cockenzie House and Gardens)

As a therapist, my primary goal is to provide you with support as you embark on a journey towards gaining insights into your emotions and thought patterns. Together, we create a secure and non-judgmental space where you can freely express your thoughts, knowing that you will be heard and understood.

Within the realm of our subconscious mind lies the root of many psychological challenges we face. It governs a vast majority of our thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Utilising the powerful tool of hypnotherapy, we aim to induce a state of deep relaxation, enabling your subconscious mind to become receptive to positive suggestions. By doing so, we open the door to change, allowing you to reshape your thinking patterns, emotions, and behaviours in a positive way.

I offer online and in-person sessions and I can help you with the following: 

  • Sadness & Depression
  • Stress & Anxiety
  • Burnout
  • Self-esteem
  • Weight management
  • Sleep issues
  • Addictions
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Trauma, PTSD & C-PTSD

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc in Psychology, an MSc in Business Psychology, and I have completed seminars and training in Creative Psychotherapy, Group Dynamics, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Positive Psychology, Mind-Body-Spirit Healing, Systemic Therapy, and Family Constellation. I'm certified in Hypnotherapy, Counselling Skills, and Mindfulness Teaching, currently pursuing training as an Pluralistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. My approach combines elements from Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). I believe in a holistic approach that blends traditional talking therapy with innovative techniques like hypnosis, mindfulness, breath work, meditation, and family constellation. I offer tailored sessions to help manage stress, anxiety, and other emotional issues, aiming to support you to understand yourself and navigate life's challenges. I'm here to support your journey toward change and healing, with each session being customized to your unique needs and goals.
