Are you struggling with life at present? It may be from a stressful work environment, relationship difficulties or perhaps unresolved trauma from your past. Do you want to be free of the past, less anxious about the future so that you can enjoy your present? I offer counselling and Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) to clients who want to find joy and peace in their lives. If you are experiencing stress or anxiety at present, if you are struggling with a past trauma then I can help. I believe that the troubles that impact our mental wellbeing can be relieved through the therapeutic relationship of counselling

Many things bring us to counselling. For some, it is overwhelming emotions, such as loss or anger. For others, it is painful or restrictive marital or family relationships. Some of us seek counselling because day-to-day life feels pointless or it’s dominated by anxiety. Some of us are quite stuck: for example, you may have a part of you that wants to achieve things in life but another part of you habitually sabotages your efforts.

Are you anxious and finding life overwhelming, suddenly the simplest decisions are impossible - this may be situational, relational or historical; large or small I offer a space to speak freely secure in the knowledge our sessions are confidential. My theory is person centred although I offer Integrative therapy which is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client.

I hope to offer you a warm welcome to my therapy room. There you will find a comfortable chair with a view of the beach. I welcome clients of all ages 16 years upwards. You may have a specific issue you wish to explore, or come to find a safe space to look more deeply at things that have been troubling you. Life can throw up all kinds of curve balls that can impact in many ways. Coming to talk together can help to make sense out of what can be confusing situations, relationships and feelings. I will meet you with acceptance and give you space and time to explore your options and support your change.

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.

I have a background in District Nursing and have worked within the NHS for 26 years. Many people who have chronic health conditions, or who are receiving palliative care find it difficult to attend therapy. There can be many reasons why it is difficult to leave your home whether physical or psychological. I offer counselling in East Lothian for people who would prefer, or find it easier, to be seen face to face at home. I am also happy to offer telephone or zoom counselling.

I have been involved in counselling since 2004. In that time, I have helped a wide range of clients, with issues such as bereavement, serious illness, depression, anxiety, self-harm, addictions, suicidal feelings, anger, family problems, sexuality and relationship difficulties. Life has a habit of presenting us with challenges and sometimes we need insight, help and support to overcome them. You may be experiencing a specific difficulty or it might be something that's hard to put your finger on - either way, I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore and deal with what's going on in your life.

Hi thank you for visiting my profile page, you’ve just taken the courageous first step to look for help through counselling. Sometimes we face challenges in our day-to-day lives which can be stressful, frustrating and difficult to manage. Turning to someone you don’t know can be daunting and confusing making you feel vulnerable and scared. However, counselling offers a safe, caring confidential space to explore, and discuss your difficulties. I will listen and support you with empathy and respect. I will work with you in an open, honest and non-judgemental way.

I've seen first hand how supportive Art Psychotherapy can be. Dealing with all that life can throw at us can leave us feeling helpless, anxious, low and stuck. I work with individuals from all walks of life and different stages, experiencing difficulties such as anxiety, chronic illness, grief and loss to support them in feeling better emotionally. Art Psychotherapy helps engage the brain and body a little differently through creativity, art and image making, in addition to talking. Together, we can create a healing therapeutic environment where stories can be shared, emotions processed, and holistic wellbeing fostered.

Things can change and life can be different, sometimes we just need a helping hand to see that. If you want someone to talk to or are looking to make significant changes in your life I will work alongside you to develop a relationship that will be positive, potent and protected.

I work with individuals aged 12 and up at the moment. You may have issues with anxiety or trauma and are looking for ways to regulate yourself and work through the trauma. There may be attachment issues established in childhood that have been unhelpful in adulthood. Perhaps you require a confidential place to process distressing things you have experienced, or somewhere to take ownership of your story and change your narrative.

My name is Niamh, and I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. CBT provides a structure which helps you to explore your emotions, thoughts, behaviours and move towards a more manageable tomorrow armed with insight and self-awareness. I offer a space for individuals to address the difficulties they are encountering and teach practical tools, techniques, and skills to help people overcome the issues they are experiencing. CBT is very effective when working with specific therapy goals like managing anxiety or moving out of a period of depression. It is recommended for many issues including PTSD, OCD, eating disorders and addictions.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Prestonpans?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 Prestonpans 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.
