About MeBefore training as a counsellor I worked as a research scientist in the fields of genetics and cancer research at Edinburgh University. After gaining my PhD in Genetics I moved to Edinburgh where I worked at the university. I am also a qualified teacher of biology and currently lecture part time at a further education college in Edinburgh. I established my private counselling practice in 2004 in Edinburgh and moved in 2010 to East Lothian.
I live in Cockenzie with my husband and dog; my hobbies include walking the dog, creative writing and photography.
