I work with people who are experiencing low self-esteem, anxiety, difficulties with assertiveness, low mood, trauma, PTSD, C-PTSD, relationship difficulties, loss of meaning, and difficult life transitions.
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.

Research suggests that while many of us don't suffer from mental health issues, we're not able to say that we are flourishing. We often feel "stuck" and not sure what to do next. The "not knowing" may be about a relationship , a career choice or something else that prevents you from feeling that you're moving forward. Coaching doesn't offer advice but uses attentive listening to discover insightful questions which will help you to find your unique answer. Our coaching space will honour your ability to make good decisions and we'll use interventions that help you to unlock your answers.

Psychotherapy is an intervention based on maintaining a relationship .
Your decision to do undertake therapy is significant; it marks a moment where you have decided you and your life need to be different, and you are willing to do the work of changing. Whether you have come to this work because things have gone awry in the present, you've always had parts of yourself you wished to change, or because you've realised you need to grow to achieve your goals in the future, I want to offer my presence, space, and care to you. Whatever challenge you are struggling with, I am here to facilitate your process of growth, and to discover with you who you are - and help you become who you want to be.

Whatever you are struggling with right now, I know how hard it can be to find a trusting person to talk to. It may be that you are feeling anxious much of the time without really understanding why. Or perhaps you are just feeling a bit stuck and disillusioned with your life at the moment, and you are no longer experiencing happiness or enjoyment in anything that you do. This may be causing tension and conflict in your relationships with others, or indeed with your self. I believe that a safe and trusting relationship is at the heart of good therapy, and just having someone listen to your story can lead to the possibility of change.

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 have always been profoundly curious about others and aim to foster that curiosity in my clients. I am interested in the ways that our families, culture and environment shape us and in the ways in which people create meaning in their lives. I have found again and again that counselling and psychotherapy can help people understand themselves more deeply and bring about changes which lead to more fulfilled and interesting ways of living, as well as to an improved understanding of themselves in relationship with others. I am able to work on both a short and long term basis, with a preference for longer term work.

I am a Pluralistic counsellor with 25 years of experience working with adults, children & young people in a variety of settings.  Counselling will help you identify and move past the obstacles that may have been keeping you back in your life and to identify your personal values and strengths. It will empower you to see your life through a different lens, to gain new perspectives and achieve the outcomes you’re striving for. Anxiety, depression, stress, negative thinking patterns... can affect parts of your life and your ability to handle your situation. Are you ready to explore the possibilities for a happier and healthier life?

I work extensively with people experiencing relationship issues in their personal & professional lives; that can be about exploring challenges, facing changes taking place & understanding what these mean to you.
People seek therapy & counselling for different reasons & you will have your own unique life experiences that may cause you unhappiness or you may find yourself at crisis point feeling unsure of what to do next. I have worked with many different clients from across the social & cultural spectrum from medical professionals to artists, full-time students to stay at home parents & retirees. I understand that often it is the first step, no matter who we are, that can feel the hardest; the reaching out & making contact. You may want to explore options for change, make sense of a difficult experience or gain new strategies for coping.

Though I often work with complex trauma, many other issues are often present: from depression and anxiety to alcohol abuse and relationship problems.
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.

My areas of special interest include, meditation, mindfulness, creative writing, and professional interest include, relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, loss and grief, identity, addiction and trauma.
When life feels like a struggle, knowing where to find the right kind of help and support can feel daunting. Though talking therapy is challenging, and making the decision to start counselling a huge step, it can help us make sense of our life, be transformative and help us understand our relationships with ourselves and others. My aim is to find a way of being in with clients that is responsive, collaborative and compassionate; providing a space that feels safe, supportive, open and respectful.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for an Edinburgh relationship counsellor, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counselling in Edinburgh.
