An experienced counsellor working mainly online, but also practicing close to Edinburgh City centre. An integrative counsellor, I draw from many disciplines to ensure I can offer counselling of sufficient flexibility to meet your needs. I work with people of all ages. I love working with students, where I have a great deal of success; I have an interest in men's issues and a passion for working with those suffering or surviving abuse (physical; emotional; sexual) or trauma. I work with couples, for which I have specialist qualification, and others in relationships who have lost their way and need help to move ahead.

I am an experienced BACP accredited & registered counsellor with 20 years experience, & 12 years as a state registered community & mental health OT. Perhaps past events affect how you cope with life today, or patterns repeat in your relationships. Maybe you need a place to be heard; to express yourself & explore difficulties. I offer a relational approach, helping you to move forward by understanding yourself better. We can explore & think about how your past affects your present. Alternatively some past events may be very alive in your mind & may need to be processed with an experienced professional.

I help angry people, to reduce or remove the need to be angry. I help people to communicate more authentically, to get the outcomes that help them. I help people to see conflict as a tool, rather than something to avoid. I help people to understand their unmet needs, and how to get them met well, for healthier lifestyles. I help people make sense of their behaviours, and to decide whether to keep them, or to find good reason to change them. I help people to understand and name their emotions, and to know what to do with them instead of hoping they go away.

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.

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.

I am a Psychedelic Integration Therapist and Senior Counselling Psychologist. If you have had or are planning psychedelic experiences, you may wish to explore that in psychotherapy. I offer preparation to psychedelic experiences in context of your presenting problems to help you approach these extraordinary states with a healthy mindset. Psychedelic states may bring great insight, and unlock your inner intelligence, however, they may also be difficult and confusing. I can help you in making sense of these ambiguous experiences, as it may be exceptionally useful to conceptualise them and integrate them with everyday life.

Hi, I’m Darren. As a Counselling Psychologist specialising in psychedelic therapy, I can help you to use psychedelics safely and effectively to break old patterns and feel happier, less anxious, and have better relationships because you deserve a treatment that works much faster than traditional talking therapies. Have you tried talking therapies but found they only kind of worked? Well, me too, and research has proven that psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy is much faster and more effective at treating anxiety, depression, addiction, and trauma. Psychedelics are also useful tools for spiritual exploration and personal development.

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.

Difficulties and stress in the relationships that matter most to you can be a source of distress, anxiety, frustration or despair. When all your efforts to make things better still haven't worked, maybe it's time to think about trying a different approach. Working with a experienced relationship counsellor can give you the time and space to explore what is troubling you. I work with individual adults and couples from all backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities to help them gain insight and fresh perspectives on life, relationships, and other issues that cause distress.

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.

Are you looking for a space to talk, be listened to and make sense of how you feel? I understand it can be hard to open up to someone. I'll provide a safe, confidential and nonjudgmental place where you will be supported to explore any issues which may be affecting your life and help you to find a way to move forwards. I believe that we all have the ability to grow and achieve our potential and that a positive therapeutic relationship can greatly aid this process.

Would you like to feel happier, less worried, more content, less anxious? Have you become aware of patterns of behaviour you realise aren’t good for you, but don’t know how to stop? Do you feel that the image of yourself you present to the world doesn’t match how you feel inside?

I am aware that you might be coming to counselling for a variety of reasons. I will work collaboratively with you to address whatever it is that you are struggling with. It may be something from your past or something that you are dealing with now, or both. You are perhaps feeling upset about a situation or feeling sad and not sure why, you may be experiencing anxiety, depression or low mood or have experienced a bereavement or loss or have family issues you want to address. You may feel stuck or just want to understand yourself better. Together we will work out what is going to be most helpful for you in counselling.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Edinburgh are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

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.
