Do you feel out of balance? As if something is not quite right and you're not sure why? Or perhaps you already know what is going on for you and you would just like the space to be able to talk this through and find some new ways of coping? It's certainly not uncommon to feel this way and a safe therapeutic space could be what you need just now. Whether you're facing problems in the here and now, or want to speak about patterns or learned behaviours from your childhood - we can work together to bring about positive change and learn coping mechanisms. Heightened self awareness can help move you towards a new way of being.

I offer a safe and facilitative space for you to think about what you need in order to feel better. An important part of that process is the relationship we develop and I will be with you each step of the way. I will listen, empathise, wonder with you, as well as laugh, cry, and get angry. Life is incredibly difficult at times. We could most likely all benefit from a space where we can share ourselves, our thoughts and feelings, and be shown acceptance. More than that, be shown care and understanding of what we are going through. If you feel that you would benefit from that kind of space, then please get in touch.

Hi, I'm Lilian, I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and I specialise in working with problematic drug & alcohol use, and sex addiction (including porn use). There are many reasons that we use substances or behaviours to change the way we feel and deal with painful emotions. Perhaps you once felt in control and now it feels like substances or behaviours are in control of you. You may be experiencing problems in your relationships, work, health and finances and feel overwhelmed. Understanding your relationship with substances, sex or porn is key to resolving the struggle.

What if. Two words that send your mind down a well-worn path. Words and images that pop into your head at any moment and no matter how hard you try to push it away you find yourself stuck; thinking, feeling and doing the same thing over and over. Maybe it’s reliving the past, maybe it’s worrying about the future, or feeling you need to do something right now or something bad will happen. “What if” is hard to live with. But when your mind is stuck in the “what if’s” your brain is telling you there is something you need to figure out, something you need to rebalance.

For the past nine years I have been helping individuals, couples and families with mental health difficulties across a range of settings. Typical problems that I have experience treating include depression, anxiety, OCD, adjustment difficulties, trauma/PTSD, stress and relationship difficulties. I see psychotherapy as a personal journey, a chance to get to know yourself better, a safe space to explore and to grow. My interests lie in a human, in embodied experience and in the process.

Your decision to do undertake therapy is significant; it marks a moment where you have decided you and your life need to be different, and you are willing to do the work of changing. Whether you have come to this work because things have gone awry in the present, you've always had parts of yourself you wished to change, or because you've realised you need to grow to achieve your goals in the future, I want to offer my presence, space, and care to you. Whatever challenge you are struggling with, I am here to facilitate your process of growth, and to discover with you who you are - and help you become who you want to be.

I have always been profoundly curious about others and aim to foster that curiosity in my clients. I am interested in the ways that our families, culture and environment shape us and in the ways in which people create meaning in their lives. I have found again and again that counselling and psychotherapy can help people understand themselves more deeply and bring about changes which lead to more fulfilled and interesting ways of living, as well as to an improved understanding of themselves in relationship with others. I am able to work on both a short and long term basis, with a preference for longer term work.

Would you like to feel happier, less worried, more content, less anxious? Have you become aware of patterns of behaviour you realise aren’t good for you, but don’t know how to stop? Do you feel that the image of yourself you present to the world doesn’t match how you feel inside? I can offer you space and time to explore what is difficult for you in life. Whatever you are experiencing, I see my task as being alongside you as you seek greater understanding, less unease and more fulfilment.

I help with anxiety, relationship anxiety, difficult family dynamics and depression. You are more than welcome here and I want to help you feel empowered in your life and relationships by first empowering you. I believe that counselling is for everyone and that through a relational and empathic approach, I can help you to find healing, encouragement and hope by embracing who you are, your story, and your personal goals. I also have experience working with self-harm and I believe counselling can help in understanding these behaviours in a non-judgmental way as you move forward in your healing journey.

Children and teenagers can benefit from counselling therapies, and studies show that these are hugely effective, both in the short and long term. For older kids and teens, talking therapy can provide a unique space to safely explore what's going on to make them sad, angry, or anxious. For younger children, using play and art, as well as talking therapy, can help them begin to piece together things that might be difficult for them. Life doesn't always go according to plan, and sometimes things happen that no one is prepared for - an accident, a traumatic experience, a situation no one could have foreseen happening.

How are you navigating life at the moment? You may have been suffering from emotional discomfort for a while, perhaps it's more recent or maybe the pandemic has had an effect on your mental health. You are not alone, 1 in 4 of us are affected by mental health issues at some point in our lives. Looking for support to understand what you are feeling can be life changing. How we make sense of ourselves, the world and our place in it can affect our relationships, friendships, careers, social lives perhaps even robbing us of our potential. Therapy, through insight and application can deliver acceptance, change, clarity and relief.

I get that it’s not easy to ask for support and admit to vulnerability. I view therapy as as a journey of discovery, healing and growth. Through 'experiential learning' and 'dialogue' we will work with your ‘embodied awareness’ of ‘how’ you are in relationships, ‘how’ you make choices and ‘how’ you co-create your world. We will look at where you feel 'stuck' and what seems 'difficult'; we will 'stay with' the feelings and complexity that may unfold. I believe change happens organically when we have enough 'support', fully acknowledge the situation we are in, and commit to work.If that resonates with you, please contact me.

I don’t know if you have ever had the opportunity to share your story where someone really listens. I mean really listens, wanting to know you, your story, your ups and downs. Where nothing is off limits. Space to speak what maybe you’ve never spoken before. Sitting in the counsellee seat is not always easy and opening up to someone you do not know can be daunting. I know that taking that first step requires courage and I would love to walk with you on your journey.

Are you struggling with relationships, significant life changes or issues relating to self esteem, anxiety, loss, grief and trauma? Maybe the issue is less tangible, but you are aware of a changing of the seasons, a sense that you no longer know quite who you are, nor quite what you want next out of life. Life can be overwhelming and exhausting for all of us sometimes. Sometimes we need help in coping with life's challenges.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Leith, Edinburgh?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Leith, Edinburgh specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
