"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it." Martha Graham, Dancer
I passionately believe in the potential within each of us to grow, change and develop as we move through our lives. Sometimes it can feel like this potential is hard to access and we may be more aware of the difficulties we face in navigating our lives than the possibility of growth and satisfaction we might long for.
Perhaps you are stuck, dissatisfied, feeling lost or confused in your life, work and relationships. Maybe you're suffering from difficulties like anxiety, depression, and the impacts of trauma or past problems. Or, you might be struggling with a sense that something is missing and are curious to explore.
I offer individual counselling and psychotherapy, facilitate creative self development and teach yoga in Edinburgh. I am deeply committed to this work and how it might support you in untapping and accessing this potential for richer living. This is why I call my work Adventures in Being, such is my hope for my clients and myself for a life nourished by creative possibilities, satisfying relationship with ourselves and others, and enriching explorations of what it is to be ourselves. Whatever brings you here, I hope you find the information you need to support you to make the next step on your journey.
How Can Therapy Help?
Counselling and therapy can help with a wide range of personal and social difficulties. Talking through and exploring your problems, with me, in privacy and without judgement can bring new perspectives, understanding and the possibility of real change.
My way of working emphasises close attention to how you feel, what you want and need, along with what you think and what you believe. We can sift through the beliefs and thoughts that support you, and those that limit you or cause suffering. We can explore what resources and supports you to live the life you want.
Overtime, you can build the emotional resilience, self knowledge, compassion and inner strength to pursue the life you want to live.
