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.

I help people, I'm good at my job, I also am lucky in that I love what I do. I help with anarray 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.

If you feel that you want to make changes in your life, or feel overwhelmed with what you have to cope with on a daily basis, I can help you. You know you don't want to be in the same place in a year's time but don't know what you do want out of life. You may have issues with your mental health or have been through a particularly hard time or event. I like to work with people to help them to identify and achieve their goals and to plan for their future. This can involve supporting you with counselling to address personal issues and feelings, but it is also a more practical approach that helps you to produce your life-map.

Bu Therapy works with YOU. You are, after all, the expert with what is going on in your life today. Together we will work on areas that might be affecting your life and what you would like to change. CBT therapy looks at the present rather than the past and identifies negative or maladaptive thinking styles that make you see things differently and out of focus. I will work with you in a collaborative manner so we can correct this “blurred view” of life and bring clarity, focus, and direction back into your life, and “together we can come out of the darkness and into the light".

Hi Im Ellie. A warm welcome to my page. Sometimes our journey through life can feel frightening and overwhelming, and it can be hard to know which way to turn.

Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, we can forge a path through the fog together. Therapy offers the chance to empower yourself with insight and self-awareness to develop sustainable change.

People come to counselling for many reasons. Sometimes this decision is motivated by a need for change or perhaps having to deal with unexpected change. For others it may be a desire to talk, to understand and be understood. I believe there can be real value in talking with someone who is trained and experienced to listen in a way that allows you to feel heard and understood. I provide a safe and non-judgemental space where we can explore the issues that you want to address.

Hello and a warm welcome. Counselling is a process in which a trained therapist can help you to understand and deal with difficult emotions that you may be experiencing. These can be linked with previous difficult life experiences. People often seek counselling when they are going through challenging times in their lives. You may be feeling low, anxious or depressed. I can help you make sense of what is happening and try to help you to find ways of dealing with this.

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.

The core conditions of Therapy are congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathy. In other words, a genuine space to be yourself and have someone understand what you are experiencing. Within therapy, you should experience a safe place to express exactly what you are feeling and not be judged upon those feelings. Therapy should be what you need it to be for you.

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.

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.

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.

Alcohol Use Counsellors
Alcoholism, or alcohol dependence, is the most severe form of alcohol use. It is a chronic disease characterized by the consumption of alcohol at a level that interferes with physical and mental health and with family and social responsibilities. An alcoholic will continue to drink despite serious health, family, or legal problems.
