Hello, my name is Rachel Gray, and I would be delighted to offer you therapeutic support. I offer both short and long term therapy for adults, young people, and children in central Edinburgh. It can feel daunting when you make the decision to find a counsellor; to acknowledge, even just to yourself, that you may need some support to work through a current or historical difficulty. Having 4 teenagers myself, I understand as a parent how hard it can be navigating the difficulties children and teenagers face. With younger people, I tend to work more creatively as talking therapy can be quite scary on its own for younger clients.

Life can be stressful. Balancing the pressure of our commitments with our desire for health, happiness and authenticity can feel exhausting or even impossible. We all need to slow down and carve out some space in our lives to connect with our inner selves and the deeper meaning beyond our everyday existence. I offer a holistic approach to counselling and therapy, combining evidence based practice with holistic tools such as mindfulness, meditation, somatic experiencing, self-care, personal and spiritual growth. I am committed to a deepening path of open-hearted living and self discovery.

Are you concerned that your use of substances or problematic behaviour is getting out of control and is causing problems in your life? Or are you worried that you will not be able to cope without them, even though you would like to cut back or stop? Do you feel locked into thinking styles which are starting to dominate your life such as anxiety or depression and don't know what to do? Imagine if you could regain control of your life and situation so you felt happier, and were no longer dependant or worried about your substance use or problematic behaviours? Recovery is possible but sometimes we need a bit of help to get there

Emotional, relational and health-related difficulties can often arise from adverse life experiences or trauma. With the support of a psychotherapist you can work towards identifying the source of ​stress and anxiety, dissociation, depression, addiction, sleeping problems, issues related to eating and many other symptoms. It is by working at depth and carefully tracking what is happening in the body - along with emerging emotions and thoughts - that we can address the 'stuckness' of symptoms.

Sometimes we experience changes or traumas that leave us struggling with the pressures of life, relationships, work, or studies. This can affect our self-esteem, our sense of identity, and our ability to cope. This can become overwhelming and may lead us to unhelpful or harmful thoughts and behaviours. With help, we can overcome our difficulties and learn to manage our emotions more effectively. With compassion, empathy, respect, and a safe space, we feel heard, considered, and valued. By understanding our thoughts and behaviours we can feel empowered to make positive changes that can lead us to fuller and more enjoyable lives.

Life can be a challenge, especially now. As your therapist, I can offer you a secure and trusted space to bring your needs and concerns. I believe that therapy should lead to a “step change” where my clients become able to make an immediate difference to the way they think and their relationships with others. I work to build trust and empathy and strive to understand the world from your perspective. I can help you to understand that small changes to the way you see things can have a major impact on how you feel.
