"The effort to become human is among the very few things in a person's life that may over time come to feel more important to him than his personal survival" (T Ogden 1997). I am a professionally qualified and experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor. I have undertaken extensive continued professional development which has included training in the Dynamics of Attachment in Adult Life; Therapeutic Assessment; Infant Observation and Therapeutic Supervision. I have a particular interest in the relationship between shame and trauma.

I have been helping clients with a vast array of issues, concerns or life difficulties for roughly seven years, people from all walks of life and from all backgrounds, I do this as I am passionate about enabling change to occur for people and experience the freedom this brings. My speciality is unsuccessful attempts to change or alter chemical usage, problem behaviour and unhelpful thinking patterns that impact mental and emotional health—individuals who wish to explore and understand themselves and to look at making changes. I also work with all emotional and mental health issues as they often are evident in my speciality.

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 more deeply the issues you are bringing, enabling you to experience the changes you seek. For children therapy happens in the midst of play and craft activities. Therapy can help pave the way to a more hopeful future for all.

Do you feel you don’t have goals or you can’t achieve them although you have tried everything? Do you feel paralysed or overwhelmed facing certain situations? Do you feel everything is annoying or your anger, sadness or fear last for long time? Do you feel stuck with some thoughts and you can’t stop overthinking them? Do you see these features within a member of your family? I think everyone will feel like this over the course of our lives, even it can be adaptative. However, sometimes we can struggle to find clarity and understanding , at the same time that respect both ourselves and others.

Do you feel like you live in a world that doesn’t accept who you are? A dear friend of mine once summed up this feeling beautifully: “Being LGBTIQ+ is not my issue, it’s living in a world where others take issue with me being LGBTIQ+”. When we live in a society that does not see or respect our difference we internalize a lot of messages and beliefs about who we should, or should not, be. Trying to shape ourselves into an image that doesn’t fit isn’t just exhausting - it’s traumatizing! Hi, my name is Gavin and I identify as a gender non-conforming Queer person.

Hello and welcome. We all face difficulties at times, things that happen to us can feel overwhelming and result in worry, sadness or anger. Perhaps you want to feel more in control of your feelings, want to do more of the things you enjoy, or spend more quality time with others. Talking therapies can help you understand what may be causing and maintaining your problems, and can explore how to manage your feelings and thoughts in better, healthier ways. As a result, you may feel more able to cope with anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, bereavement and other issues and life challenges.

Being human can be complicated, there are times we all struggle to make sense of how we’re living. Sometimes nothing seems to bring us any sense of joy, meaning or simply contentment anymore. Talking to a counsellor might seem intimidating or downright terrifying but it’s honestly true that talking can make a huge difference and help make those negative or even desperate times easier to manage. I will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental space in which you can share any problems or troubling thoughts you might have. Together we will work through these in order that you can find resolution and happiness in your life.

Online therapy is more accessible than in person and is equally effective. I can meet clients on Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp. If you would like to find out how online EMDR or CBT could work for you please do get in touch via the link and I can provide more information via email or have a chat on the phone.

If you're reading this, you're curious about what therapy can do for you. You might have issues with relationships, communication, family, self-worth, body image, mood, eating or sleep, or you might just be feeling vaguely disconnected and don't know why. You might want to be able to make sense of what you feel, why you feel the way you do and then know what to do about it. One thing is for sure - you'll learn a lot about yourself in therapy - how you got here, what you need, how to take care of yourself.

My particular interest lies in guiding and encouraging people towards self-actualization and the integration of their fullest potential in whatever sphere of life they are engaged. This process may be seen as a journey, which we share together for at time and requires only ‘the willingness and the courage to be’. To participate joyfully in life is the goal at the heart of psychosynthesis therapy and coaching – and its achievement often comes in unexpected ways. We focus on developing your potential at all levels of being - body, feelings, mind and spirit - and on your deeper centre of identity as the source of true relationship.

Being human is hard, but you don't have to go it alone. I can help you understand yourself better and improve your relationship with yourself and others, to ultimately live a more fulfilling life. My primary modality is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with a holistic, personalised approach. A lot of my clients happen to be students or work in post-doc positions, but I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds on a variety of issues. I have an interest in working with anxiety and related issues, such as procrastination and perfectionism, and am passionate about how video games can support well-being.

Choosing a professional to help you with your struggles can be a stressful process. Many people have heard of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy but aren’t sure what it involves, and don’t know whether they need CBT, counselling or something else. That’s not a problem - I will provide an initial phone call to answer questions, listen to your concerns and discuss with you what you are looking for. My first session by video call involves an assessment of your current difficulties from the perspective of a trained mental health professional, and working with you to establish whether CBT or counselling would be most beneficial for you.

I love working with people, getting to know you and hearing your story. I believe that we are all unique. One of the things I love most about my work is the privilege of seeing someone begin to thrive and to enjoy their life again. I love helping to find some inner calm, clarity of thought and to be practicing self compassion as part of their everyday lives. I work in a bespoke way, tailor making my approach to each person. However, that said, everyone's needs compassion and so a compassion focused therapy approach runs through all of my work. I am most definitely a human first and a psychologist second.

Sometimes, we try to make sense of our world, thoughts, feelings and emotions. We might find ourselves repeating patterns of behaviour in our present lives due to past experiences and patterns. I want to help you shift mental blocks, untangle complex emotions, resolve issues and reveal new perspectives. Whether it’s self-development, addressing emotional and psychological issues, or processing traumatic events, I will work with you both Psychodynamically and in a Person-centred way as the need arises. Delivering both online and face to face therapies in the centre of Edinburgh, we will work together to help you achieve your goal.

Do you feel consumed by thoughts about food and weight? Perhaps the more you try to control your eating, the more you end up binging?. Maybe you know that dieting doesn’t help but you don’t know what to do with a plan or rules to follow? Perhaps you overeat in secret or when you're alone and feel a lot of shame around it? I understand what this feels like, I struggled with disordered eating for many years and at the time neither understood it nor knew where to turn to for help. Now, I am passionate about working with women to help them break free from the misery of endless diet and binge eating cycles and make peace with food.

My name is Austen and I provide online psychotherapy to individuals experiencing sexuality related difficulties. You might be struggling with the consequences of sex or porn addiction or with the impact of childhood sexual abuse. Alternatively, you may be striving to make sense of your sexual orientation or your attraction to kink. I offer a therapeutic relationship that is strictly confidential and supportive where you can talk openly about your experiences and feelings without being judged. I have experience of working for counselling services within the NHS, Terrence Higgins Trust, Yorkshire MESMAC and Leeds Beckett University.

You may not have anyone you feel you can talk to, or maybe you do but they don’t understand you. I am experienced in offering psychological help to individuals who experience mental health issues. I try to create a safe space for each of my clients - a strong relationship is the core of effective therapy! We can either work with your current issues or go a bit deeper into unresolved childhood situations which need working through.
