Feeling on-edge, anxious or overwhelmed? Know that something needs to change but not knowing where to start or not feeling like you have the confidence to do so? Working with a professional in a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Coaching approach can help to identify and overcome challenges and difficulties you might be facing you in your life. It combines practical coaching techniques – setting out clear, manageable goals in line with personal values– with the cognitive behavioural approach when needed – to challenge and change unhelpful thinking and behaviour which might be holding you back, in a trauma informed and supportive space.

In my practice, I work with people who find it difficult to know and express what they want. I also work with clients who have experienced loss, trauma and displacement and therefore lack a sense of safety and belonging. I am experienced in working with people who find it challenging to regulate their emotions and fall into uncontrollable outbursts of confusion, anger, terror and worry. Finally, I specialise in working with individuals who struggle to form and sustain satisfying relationships and so suffer from feelings of worthlessness and emptiness.

What if you could be kinder to yourself? What if you could experience less anxiety and low mood? What if you could be supported in healing from past traumas? What if you could become more assertive and set healthy boundaries? Perhaps you don’t know what’s wrong but you’re feeling unsettled, sad, anxious, confused, or stressed. You might have put on a happy mask for too long and you’re exhausted. I invite you to imagine how things could be different and, with this hope - no matter how small the hope might be-, I invite you to get in touch with me.

Have you been finding it harder to cope lately? Are you looking to get some perspective on the different relationships you have in your life? You might be longing to feel more connected and more at peace with yourself and in your body, but you don't really know where to start. It can feel scary and difficult to find a professional you can trust and open up with. I believe that giving yourself permission to reach out to someone is an important step, and I am here to guide you on your onward journey.

Therapy can be for anyone, it can be for growth, healing and learning, as much as for working through something. Choosing to set aside a pocket of time and space just for you, can provide relief from stresses of modern-day living, giving you a chance to recognise what is really important to you and working out what steps you want to take towards the life you want for yourself. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to explore things that are troubling you, process past experiences and work towards any goals you might have.

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.

Do you often feel a sense of guilt or shame around food? Do thoughts of food become intrusive or overwhelming? Are you often binging or eating until you feel uncomfortable or sick (Binge Eating Disorder)? Perhaps you are fixated on 'healthy' or 'clean' eating (Orthorexia Nervosa)? Maybe you 'purge' by excessively exercising, restricting, making yourself sick, using laxatives, or have a history of yo-yo dieting (Bulimia Nervosa)? Perhaps you avoid whole food groups and are often called a 'fussy' or 'picky' eater (ARFID)? Or a combination of any of the above (EDNOS)? It sounds like you are struggling with an Eating Disorder!

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.

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!

I think therapy is about understanding, developing and changing. I am a clinical psychologist with many years experience of working with adults to help them to identify what the issues are for them, understand where these issues have come from, and how to make changes which will improve how they feel about their lives. I work with people with anxiety and anxiety disorders, low mood, low self-esteem, low confidence and those living with the effects of traumatic experiences. I also offer comprehensive assessments for those who have yet to fully understand what is happening for them, to help move them on in their lives.

Counselling is your confidential space to talk. You may be seeking clarity on an issue, or want to explore things that are overwhelming you, and if you wish, make changes in your life. I hope that by talking to a professional during these difficult times can bring peace. I offer a safe space as we unravel together the aspects of you that are struggling or stuck. And help you to find new perspectives to deal with living the way that you want to live.

Seeking counselling can feel like a big step. Perhaps a confusing one. Let me tell you a little about myself so that you can decide if I am the right counsellor for you. I have a COSCA accredited Diploma in Person Centred counselling meaning that I offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. I have a creative, eclectic approach and can bring other models into the counselling room where appropriate such as CBT, small world, gestalt and even music. At the moment I offer on-line and telephone counselling, however, post pandemic would also offer outdoor walking therapy.

As a therapist, I firmly believe that each of us holds the answers to our own issues within. My role here is to help you recognise these and support you in working through them. I will aim to create a trusting counselling relationship throughout our sessions, where you can feel able to express your feelings in an empathic and accepting environment. Through this collaboration, our aim would be for you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, in turn facilitating the change you are aspiring to achieve.

Making the decision about whether to start personal therapy, and who to choose as your therapist is can be daunting. There is a lot of choice out there. My first aim will be for us to co-create a space where you feel comfortable, accepted and safe to talk. In my view, therapy works best when you have an understanding of why we are talking in certain ways, when you feel empowered to ask questions and be curious, and when we work together to find ways forward. I welcome feedback, and will check in with you regularly to review how you are experiencing working together. I recognise that your time and money are valuable.

I am a Counselling Psychologist based in Edinburgh and have experience working with a wide range of mental health issues. My Doctoral training in the person-centred approach and cognitive behavioural therapy means that establishing a positive therapeutic relationship is at the core of my work. I have a keen interest in working relationally believing that difficulties in our lives are often triggered, or maintained, by our relational patterns i.e. how we relate to others, how others treat us and how we treat ourselves. We can look at how these patterns affect how we think, feel and behaviourally respond to situations.

Racing thoughts, feeling tense, uneasy, or overloaded, and unsure where to start? Perhaps you've been focused on other people and your own needs have fallen down the pecking order. At times we can take on too much, find it hard to say no or to voice our opinions. It can seem as though life is out of control or out of balance. This can be a slow a build up over time or occur following a significant moment such as a career change, life event, or loss. You are not alone in this and change is possible. I can work with you to increase your self-esteem, find a sense of ease, and move towards a happier way of being.
