Counsellor & Psychotherapist in Edinburgh
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist offering face to face and video appointments. I offer individual sessions for adults in Edinburgh at The Next Chapter in the West End, and online video sessions via Doxy.me, VSee or Zoom. Please contact me for more information about safety precautions regarding Covid-19, or to discuss availability and arrange a free, 20 minute video consultation to help you decide if you would like to begin weekly therapy sessions with me.
I trained in psychodynamic and person-centred counselling and psychotherapy at the University of Edinburgh. In addition to my core training, I have a certification in online and telephone counselling. I am a Counsellor Member of COSCA (Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland) and adhere to the relevant Statement of Ethics and Code of Practice. Anyone wishing to make a complaint relating to my practice should follow the COSCA Complaints Procedure.
My experience includes working with low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, body image, loss, trauma, substance abuse, and relationship problems. I have a particular interest in working with people struggling with low self-esteem and life transitions (e.g. starting or leaving university, beginning a career, navigating new or changing relationships).
I offer one to one counselling for adults at The Next Chapter in the West End, and online sessions via Doxy.me, VSee and Zoom. Sessions last 50 minutes and usually take place at the same time each week. My standard session fee is £50 and I accept bank transfer, cash and credit/debit cards.
I offer short term and long term counselling, depending on your circumstances. You might be looking for a set number of sessions to work through a particular issue that's been on your mind, or perhaps you are interested in a longer term, holistic experience to explore and understand yourself better.
Whether you have previously tried counselling or are considering it now for the first time, I offer a 20 minute video consultation at no cost. We can use this opportunity to talk about what brings you to counselling and how you are feeling, to help you decide if you would like to begin weekly therapy sessions with me.
My training in psychodynamic and person-centred therapy allows me to draw on different therapeutic perspectives in order to best meet the individual needs of my clients. Psychodynamic therapy focuses on our self-awareness and understanding of how the unconscious past influences the present. The person-centred approach trusts in the individual’s inner resources and aims to facilitate growth through acceptance, authenticity and empathy.
I provide a warm, confidential, quiet space. Rather than trying to solve your problems for you, I aim to help you reflect on your experience and reach a greater understanding of yourself so that you can move forward in whatever way feels right for you.. The space is here for you to talk through whatever feels important to you at your own pace, and to be heard without judgement or expectations.
