We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do list’
I am an experienced psychotherapist who has worked in different settings in Edinburgh and London, in the third sector and in private practice. I believe I have a deep knowledge and understanding of the emotional issues that can afflict us all as human beings and so I am well placed to support you through your own individual process.
I don’t use the term ‘mental health’, but instead I refer to it as ‘emotional health’ and this is something we all need to nurture and work on in order to keep it as healthy and resilient as possible. It is not a luxury, but rather something we all deserve to do for ourselves and our families to create more fulfilling lives and better functioning relationships.
I can help you gain in the self-awareness and emotional intelligence to move forwards more positively in life and learn to apply the resilience and strategies learnt in our sessions.
One to one sessions enable you to bring any personal problems into a uniquely confidential space. In the safety of this relationship we can explore what the underlying issues might be and together work towards a better understanding of them.
Relationship work can be very healing as it can help couples work towards whatever outcome is necessary for them.. It may be to gain a better understanding of each other or to overcome a difficult period. It could also be to help them manage a separation as well as possible.
- Young people:
It is inspiring to work with young people who are open to facing up to their emotional challenges and to finding better ways of managing them. This journey will set them on a more self-aware and emotionally resilient path for the rest of their lives.
