My ideal client is someone who has experienced trauma in their life, and is looking for a way to heal its effects, When we are overwhelmed by an event or a series of events, life can feel like an intolerable burden that stretches, to the limit, our ability to cope. We survive rather than live and we are left feeling very unsafe, confused and alone. We want connection with others but, because of our experience, we struggle to trust and stay isolated in order to feel safe. We tend to blame ourselves for how we feel and our inability to manage. We stay immersed in this destructive cycle of self-blame and distress.

Difficulties and stress in the relationships that matter most to you can be a source of distress, anxiety, frustration or despair. When all your efforts to make things better still haven't worked, maybe it's time to think about trying a different approach. Working with a experienced relationship counsellor can give you the time and space to explore what is troubling you. I work with individual adults and couples from all backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities to help them gain insight and fresh perspectives on life, relationships, and other issues that cause distress.

Are you tired of letting anxiety run your life? Anxiety can quickly become the number one thing in your life and can start to feel inescapable. I will work with you to find new ways for you to relate to and cope with your anxiety so that you (and not your anxiety) can decide how you want to live your life. I work with both anxiety caused by particular present stressors in your life (e.g. work related anxiety or a life event such as pregnancy) as well as long-term anxiety (e.g. social anxiety). Get in touch via email to talk about your unique anxiety, specific goals for therapy, and how we might work together towards them.

What if you could become more assertive and set healthy boundaries? Perhaps you don’t know what’s wrong but you’re feeling unsettled, confused, or stressed. You might have put on a happy mask for too long and you’re exhausted.

I believe our mental health is of uttermost importance at all times, but especially today when the whole world is experiencing shared anxiety and uncertainty. I would like to offer a helping hand in what may be a very difficult time for you. If you feel stuck in a loop or unable to find joy in life, I can offer my curiosity, empathy, and insights to help you find meaning in your experience. To do this, I will often draw on my background in psychology as well as on psychoanalytic and object-relations ideas which attempt to link what you're experiencing in the present with your early childhood and family experiences.

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exacerbate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalisation, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in New Town, Edinburgh can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
