My name is Stephen and I am glad that you are reaching out for support – I know that it isn’t easy. I am a person-centred counsellor and eco-therapist. I work online with people from all over the UK, or in outdoor, natural spaces in Midlothian. As a person-centred counsellor, I believe that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions for our issues. I believe that deep down you have the ability and resources for growth, but in order to find this inner wisdom, you may need an empathic and non-judgemental space with someone who truly listens for growth to take place. A plant needs certain conditions to flourish properly, and so do we.

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.

Do you find it difficult to talk to those closest to you about your issues and concerns? Perhaps you don’t want to burden them or feel worried that they might judge or not understand what you are going through? I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings, allowing you to understand more about yourself and your relationships with others. As an integrative counsellor, I work with a variety of therapeutic approaches and methods, and combine them to suit the needs of each individual client.

Hi there :) Are you looking for support around coming out? Transitioning? Questioning your gender, sexuality or another aspect of your identity? Recovering from experiences of harm? Or perhaps need a safe space where you can feel understood and respected so you can get on with talking about what's going on for you? When we are unable to (safely) be our authentic selves we can experience great stress, anxiety, low mood as well as other challenges. Counselling and an exploratory listening approach such as the one I practice can really help to improve self relationship, reduce distress and isolation & increase well being.

Sometimes it can feel like we work really hard to get to where we are, only to find when we arrive that sometime is still missing or not quite right – surely we should feel better than this? But maybe you’ve always felt a bit different from other people, almost as if everyone else got the manual on how to be a functioning adult and you didn’t, or that there’s something fundamentally wrong with you. You might be looking for help because you are experiencing anxiety, relationship challenges, difficulties making decisions or setting boundaries. It might seem like you have too many overwhelming feelings, or rarely any feelings at all.

I have worked in community psychological services, NHS secondary care affective disorder services, specialist eating disorder services, and NeuroDevelopmental Disorder services, and the issues I work with include ADHD, autism, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, emotion dysregulation, borderline/bipolar personality disorders and trauma. My multi-training background offers me an opportunity to tailor the treatment to the client's needs rather than asking the client to adapt to a treatment model. I work collaboratively and integratively with clients, hoping to achieve a shared understanding of their difficulties.

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.

Both my own experiences of OCD from an early age & my clinical training have led me to deeply understand OCD, & how to recover from it. Because of this, I know that it’s so important to have an OCD therapist who really understands you. And now, you are no longer on your own with OCD - you have found a private OCD specialist who has been where you are now, & has successfully recovered from OCD. I understand the nature of your intrusive thoughts, obsessions, compulsions, struggles, & distress, & how to guide you out of your OCD labyrinth.

‘You are not just a catalogue of adversities that you are faced with in life. You are not just the ‘damage’ that you have been told you suffered from. You are not even the pathology or the series of labels and diagnoses that have been given to you. You are a creature of immeasurable strength with the innate ability to grow and trust again and keep trusting and even learning to trust for a first time. You are hard wired and geared to connect with other and through that connection to protect your mental health and recover. You are a Growing Truster.’ Dr Zoë Chouliara Formerly Professor in Mental Health, Consultant Psychologist

Anxiety, perfectionism, and self-criticism; this triple combo of hurt can stop us from going after the things we really want in life. We can find ourselves trying to distract ourselves from the uncomfortable fear of failing, opting out of things we want to do out of fear, and getting caught up in thoughts about 'what ifs' and 'maybe' until we feel frozen. Or we might push ourselves to the point of burning out seeking the validation we only find when we achieve something driven by a fear of the day we are not good enough. If your sense of self-worth has become tied to 'doing' rather than simply existing, I may be able to help.

I believe we all have an innate wisdom and the potential to lead a rich and fulfilling life. My role is to support you to move beyond difficulties and realise that potential. People seek counselling for many different reasons. You might be encountering difficulties in relationships, experiencing depression or low self-esteem, or struggling with anxiety. You may be feeling stuck, lost, alone, or troubled by past experiences. Life is unpredictable, and you can’t always control what comes your way. But with the right support, you can choose how to relate and respond to these events.

Hi there, my name is Ana and I'm a psychodynamic counsellor specializing in parental narcissism and existential issues. If you feel stuck in a loop or unable to find joy in life, I can offer my curiosity, empathy, and insights to help you find meaning in your experience. To do this, I will often draw on my background in psychology and philosophy, as well as psychodynamic therapy which looks at the unconscious processes between us and find links between what you're experiencing in the present and your early childhood and family experiences. On top of this, I use a systemic lens when working with families.

Having the right fit (“therapeutic alliance”) with your psychologist is viewed as the most crucial factor in the healing process. I would encourage you to choose a practitioner with a broad life experience as well as a clinical training in a range of evidence-based psychological therapies. A former lawyer, I practised human rights & social justice law for years in the courts in the UK. This led to my interest in psychology & trauma & therapies to overcome psychological difficulties. I’ve lived in Canada, France, Italy & Scotland and have travelled all over the world, so I hope to have a background which may help you.

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.
