I work with men a lot.
Hello there, thanks for checking me out. Individuals: Life’s toll can leave us with hurts and regrets. Sometimes we end up so wounded everything loses its shine. Life becomes colourless. We struggle with trauma, anxiety or low mood. By creating a constructive conversation with me, we can work towards healing. Couples: I use emotionally focused therapy to help create a connection between spouses and partners. I explore hurtful cycles of interaction to change them. Together we develop positive cycles to heal the relationship. Families: I specialise in young adults/students and their parents; blended families; alienation; child contact

I specialise in working with men and teenagers, often working with men who suffer from a past "father wounding". At the same time, I enable them to become more emotionally intelligent in dealing with feelings and relationships. Starting counselling can seem daunting, but we work within a supportive and collaborative relationship, starting your recovery by gaining insights into and compassion for yourself and your situation. From here you will learn and practise psychologically healthy attitudes and effective skills that will enable you to manage your life more effectively.

I offer adult psychology sessions and specialise in male , LGBTQIA+ and children's mental health as well as providing clinical supervision and consultation sessions for parents/schools to increase understanding of behaviours.
Hello and thank you for looking into my profile. It can be challenging finding the right therapist amidst a sea of warm faces and shiny profiles full of experience. However, I firmly believe that like any relationship, the therapeutic one needs to feel like a 'good fit' too. This outlook forms the ethos of my therapy practice as a counselling psychologist where I work in collaboration with a client to bring change through the healing properties of a relationship. It is my belief that a supportive, accepting relationship allows for deeper self exploration and long-lasting change.

Psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy is an open-ended conversation with no agenda and no time limit (i.e. number of sessions). The practice (Greek: Praxis) of psychoanalysis attends to the person who comes for analysis, to listen and witness their concerns, and to facilitate, if possible some kind of loosening of the strictures than bind and contort experience. I work with people with different needs under the rubric of mental distress.

I am an integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) counsellor, working exclusively online. My main role as a counsellor is to help you connect with how you want to be in the world and to help us work together towards putting that into practice. I believe counselling can be of benefit to anyone who wants support with changing the way they relate to themselves and their environment. It could be, for example, that you are missing out on opportunities due to fear of failure, you feel stuck in a relationship, job, or friendship group, or that whatever you do never seems to quieten the cruel self-critical voice in your head.

It can feel like life is spiralling out of control at times. Like there is a cloud over everything you think and do. You may not feel ‘yourself’ or even know who that is. You may not feel anything at all. And you might not know why… I offer you a safe space to explore some of these experiences on your own terms. In counselling, you are in control. You are the expert on your life. I am here to help facilitate your process through deep understanding and empathy, without blame or judgement.

Life can often be in a constant state of change and uncertainty. Life can also be a source of connection and growth. Sometimes that means leaning on others to help you navigate difficult times. The journey often begins with simply noticing. Since you are here, now, chances are you already started the journey.

Throughout our lives most of us will experience some form of emotional, mental or relationship problems. These problems can be related to our work, our home life, our past or simply come out of the blue. Sometimes it might just be a mild inconvenience, but more often it can affect our lives profoundly. Either way it can be hard to admit that help might be needed. And harder still to find the best help. That’s where I come in. With psychotherapy or counselling I can help you discover what the issues are and work with you to fix them.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Edinburgh then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Edinburgh, or Child Psychologists in Edinburgh.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Edinburgh psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Edinburgh specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
