Do you often feel a sense of guilt or shame around food? Do thoughts of food become intrusive or overwhelming? Are you often binging or eating until you feel uncomfortable or sick (Binge Eating Disorder)? Perhaps you are fixated on 'healthy' or 'clean' eating (Orthorexia Nervosa)? Maybe you 'purge' by excessively exercising, restricting, making yourself sick, using laxatives, or have a history of yo-yo dieting (Bulimia Nervosa)? Perhaps you avoid whole food groups and are often called a 'fussy' or 'picky' eater (ARFID)? Or a combination of any of the above (EDNOS)? It sounds like you are struggling with an Eating Disorder!

I believe mental health is just as important as physical health, the two are intricately bound together. In a non-judgemental, warm and supportive environment, I will help you to understand where the problems you are experiencing have arisen. We will work out why they have become so problematic and hard to deal with. I will help you to find strategies to cope better and tools to help you to move on in your life and feel stronger and more content. As with any problem, the sooner it is acknowledged, the sooner you can begin your recovery. This is true of emotional and physical issues, as well as practical.

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.

It is a courageous step to reach out to a therapist and, in recognition of this, I have wholeheartedly devoted 30 years of my life to helping people create real and lasting change. I have completed a vast amount of psychological training and am guided by extensive experience in really hearing the parts of my clients’ experience which are keeping them ‘stuck’ or are barriers to happiness. I help people to understand crucial scientific findings about how the brain affects our happiness and I use the most effective techniques to help clients become liberated from unhelpful repetitive behaviours or thought patterns.

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.

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.

I have been helping clients with a vast array of issues, concerns or life difficulties for roughly seven years, people from all walks of life and from all backgrounds, I do this as I am passionate about enabling change to occur for people and experience the freedom this brings. My speciality is unsuccessful attempts to change or alter chemical usage, problem behaviour and unhelpful thinking patterns that impact mental and emotional health—individuals who wish to explore and understand themselves and to look at making changes. I also work with all emotional and mental health issues as they often are evident in my speciality.

Hello and welcome. I have been working as a counsellor and therapist for over 18 years and am passionate about my work. I find that people often come for counselling and therapy when they have exhausted their other resources and still feel unable to move forward. I am completely committed to supporting you to navigate your difficulties, using my years of knowledge and experience, and my calm and unhurried approach. I am a psychodynamic counsellor which means that I will think about your whole story as well as the things that are currently affecting your day-to-day life.

I have a gentle manner but I am able to understand problems. I often work with things other therapists have not been able to help completely and have therapeutic solutions to the most challenging issues. I help you understand how the past impacted you. I use a structured approach so you create therapeutic goals which we work towards during the sessions. RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING involves having both partners spending time to express their point of view and a joint agreement on how to progress the therapy. I usually set “homework” for both individuals and couples to work on between sessions. DISCOUNTS available for block bookings

Counselling is a space to talk, think and be listened to in confidence with a trained professional who will respect you and your experiences. Life can be challenging especially when we are dealing with difficult or overwhelming feelings. It is often hard to understand the root of one's own pain and perhaps talking to friends and family is too difficult or does not seem to bring about the change and acceptance you seek. For those feeling stuck or isolated, counselling will improve your emotional wellbeing and help you feel more in control of your life, and with the right counsellor it will lead to positive and lasting change.

Whether you are suffering from increased anxiety or overwhelm, depression, burnout, relationship difficulties or marriage problems, you don’t have to go around feeling like this. As a therapist with additional and diverse life skills and interests, I can help you feel better, and quickly. Every situation is unique, but when working with you, I will aim to get to the nub of any problems quickly and effectively, and to provide practical solutions. For deeper trauma we can shift into a longer relationship, using IFS or Narm. I can show you how things can be better for you, using evidence based and trauma-informed methods.

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.
