I work with people of all ages, including children and young people, and with people who have other mental health related difficulties, such as anxiety, low mood and OCD , and with people who are looking to improve their general wellbeing.
Psychological therapy is about making sense of things, it is about you taking back control and choice in your life, and it is about living in the present without the shadow of past difficulties. I know the thought of having to talk about things can be daunting and what I hope to offer you is expertise in taking you through this process and out the other side. My role is to walk with you throughout therapy, providing you with the necessary tools that will keep you steady and moving forward to your goals. The psychological approaches and the techniques that I share with clients are built from what I’ve seen work time and time again.

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.

I work with more defined issues such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, phobias and OCD as well as more general issues such as low self-esteem.
How are you navigating life at the moment? You may have been suffering from emotional discomfort for a while, perhaps it's more recent or maybe the pandemic has had an effect on your mental health. You are not alone, 1 in 4 of us are affected by mental health issues at some point in our lives. Looking for support to understand what you are feeling can be life changing. How we make sense of ourselves, the world and our place in it can affect our relationships, friendships, careers, social lives perhaps even robbing us of our potential. Therapy, through insight and application can deliver acceptance, change, clarity and relief.

This may include CBT for depression, anxiety, panic, stress, low self esteem, anger, OCD , trauma, PTSD, work-place conflict, pain and addictions.
Choosing a professional to help you with your struggles can be a stressful process. Many people have heard of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy but aren’t sure what it involves, and don’t know whether they need CBT, counselling or something else. That’s not a problem - I will provide an initial phone call to answer questions, listen to your concerns and discuss with you what you are looking for. My first session by video call involves an assessment of your current difficulties from the perspective of a trained mental health professional, and working with you to establish whether CBT or counselling would be most beneficial for you.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviours that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviours to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.

If you're looking for help with OCD counselling in Edinburgh or for an Edinburgh OCD counsellor, these professionals provide OCD treatment and obsessive compulsive disorder treatment. They include OCD counsellors, OCD psychologists, OCD psychotherapists and OCD counsellors in Edinburgh. They can help with Edinburgh OCD counselling, OCD symptoms, OCD children, obsessive compulsive disorder, and OCPD.

Hair-pulling (trichotillomania) and skin picking (dematillomania), collectively referred to as Body Focused Repetitive behaviours, are classified as OCD-related disorders. Treatment for trichotillomiania in Edinburgh or TTM or hair pulling in Edinburgh or skin picking can be found from these counsellors.
