I am a counsellor in Edinburgh, providing professional, confidential counselling to help you to understand and work through issues that are causing problems in your life. These are likely related toyour current feelings and lead to some of your behaviour patterns which now feel out of context or unhelpful. Both need good care and attention, and a regular stock-take is invaluable. Too often people under-value their mental health and ignore early warning signs or withstand symptoms for too long.
Many people experience psychological, emotional and mental health difficulties at some point in their lives. Sometimes these difficulties can resolve with time or with support from family and friends.However, there are times when this is not enough. Psychological therapy, or psychotherapy, gives you the opportunity to explore your difficulties in a safe and confidential space and to discover ways to make positive changes, build psychological resilience and become 'unstuck'.
I am insightful and real with you about how hard life can be. I might challenge you from time to time - this genuineness combined with accepting you as you are gives you the space to feel better aboutwho you really are, deep down. Counselling isn't a quick fix, but can provide deep long lasting change: I've seen this happen for my clients. Whilst I am an expert in counselling, I am not the expert of you.
The face of decision or, as I some times more colloquially put it, having first warned my pupils of an impending profanity, the 'what the fuck face', is something that we all share.

From a functional perspective, it is a psycho-physical attitude, as Alexander would have called it.
We all encounter difficult times and situations in our lives. Most of the time, we have the personal resources and support that allow us to deal with life's challenges. There are times, however, whena helping hand can make all the difference. Counselling provides you with an opportunity to explore whatever is standing in the way of your well-being and happiness. Counselling is not about judging, nor is it about advice.
