Do you feel stuck? Lost? Out of control? Overwhelmed? Or maybe you’ve just decided it’s time to look deeper within yourself.
I offer a versatile, you-centred approach that emphasises the inner resources that you may not even know you already have. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I offer a variety of creative (using visuals, art materials, sand trays, etc) and somatic (working with the body and nervous system) approaches to help you connect with yourself at a deeper level. This might be of particular interest to you if you find it difficult to talk about your feelings, tend to 'live in your head', have experienced trauma, haven't had much success with traditional talking therapy in the past, don't know where to start, or are just curious about these ways of working.
I offer therapy in my office in Leith (Edinburgh), outdoors in the surrounding area, online, or a hybrid of any of the above.
Please contact me for a free 20 minute consultation to see if I might be a good fit for you.
