Hello, I'm Gemma (and this is my guinea pig Lucy for added cute!) Thanks for clicking on my profile. Counselling may be useful to you if you are experiencing some emotional upset or change. Maybe you are going through an immediate crisis, or have a sense of something not being quite right which is beginning to affect your day to day life. Together we can explore what's happening for you right now, consider how the past may be impacting your current reality and then start to imagine how you want your future to look.

My name is Niamh, and I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. CBT provides a structure which helps you to explore your emotions, thoughts, behaviours and move towards a more manageable tomorrow armed with insight and self-awareness. I offer a space for individuals to address the difficulties they are encountering and teach practical tools, techniques, and skills to help people overcome the issues they are experiencing. CBT is very effective when working with specific therapy goals like managing anxiety or moving out of a period of depression. It is recommended for many issues including PTSD, OCD, eating disorders and addictions.

As you’re here, there’s no doubt you’re struggling with an issue or problem that might feel overwhelming, distressing or out of control. Rest assured, help is at hand. We all experience various symptoms and problems throughout life, and it’s my job to help you achieve significant and meaningful change. I won’t bore you with therapy jargon either, there’s probably more pressing issues on your mind, and I know what that's like. What I will say, is that after years of dedicated training, experience and witnessing people make real difference in their lives, I know professional therapy helps.

I am a CBT therapist and I can help you if you are struggling with depression, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship problems, addictions and many more. Maybe you would like to cope with your emotions better or make decisions more consciously and live with less fear? Maybe you want to be more compassionate or more self- confident, or think about how to reach out for what you consider important and valuable? If you have decided to reach for therapy, it may mean that you are already tired of avoidance and anger, and you feel that you want to look at your problems from a different perspective and learn new skills.

I am a Psychedelic Integration Therapist and Senior Counselling Psychologist. If you have had or are planning psychedelic experiences, you may wish to explore that in psychotherapy. I offer preparation to psychedelic experiences in context of your presenting problems to help you approach these extraordinary states with a healthy mindset. Psychedelic states may bring great insight, and unlock your inner intelligence, however, they may also be difficult and confusing. I can help you in making sense of these ambiguous experiences, as it may be exceptionally useful to conceptualise them and integrate them with everyday life.

Having been on the other side of this process myself, I recognise it can be a daunting prospect trying to guess if you’ll be able to work with someone based on a few words and a photo. To support our work, you and I will have a contract to create a safe framework covering confidentiality, fees, communications and boundaries to respect the special nature of our 'working alliance'. I describe it this way because I see the counselling partnership as a way to walk alongside your experience with a compassionate ear and another pair of eyes, to really tune in to how things are for you, whatever you choose to share. This space is for you.

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.

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Unhappy, experiencing relationship problems, feeling alone or held back by trauma or bereavement? Are you seeking counselling for a child or young person? Therapy can be short term, 4-6 sessions and we can work together in a highly focused way, including exploring strategies if you wish to. For some, longer term therapy is preferred. In this we can explore issues in greater depth and you can be supported to make lasting changes in your life. For children, therapy happens in the midst of play and craft activities.

Making the decision to start therapy is a courageous one. And if you are thinking about therapy you already recognise the need for someone to talk to about the difficulties you are experiencing. It can be challenging, but therapy can help you make sense of your life, be transformative and help you better understand your relationship with yourself and others.

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.

Talking is a wonderful way to share what’s on your mind. You may not even know what is bothering you, but by talking, it helps to get in touch with your emotions and make sense of your thoughts. Changes are often small but can be significant. Speaking with someone who is really listening and can offer a non-judgemental space to fully express yourself, improve your self awareness, and accept you for being you, can help!

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 New Town, 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 New Town, 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.
