Face to Face counselling

Talking therapy in counselling room is a traditional and well known way of counselling. We would meet at certain address in the counselling room every week at certain time. There would be 2 chairs (see the picture of the counselling room) and we would talk. The counselling room is in the centre of Edinburgh close to west end of Princess street in the city centre. The whole space is used for various forms of massages, Pilates, yoga and so on.


What would be happening in the counselling room?

Basically we would talk. The space provided offers confidential space, where you can express your feelings, thoughts and emotions in confidential environment. Depending on your personality and issues bringing to the therapy we can talk only but as well sometimes we can use different tools such as arty tools (drawing, painting) or other creative tools (emotion cards, storytelling, writing etc.). There is no obligation for using arty techniques only if suitable or willing. This is solely up to you according to what works for you and would be a matter of discussion we would have on the initial consultation and throughout the sessions.


Is face to face therapy for everyone?

Technically yes, but this depends who is the therapist qualified working with. At this point and time I work only with adult clients in the private practice depending on what issues you might be bringing in (read below).

Is face to face therapy suitable for any mental health issue?

This depends on the therapist. Face therapy I offer might not be suitable if you have Personality Disorder, or active suicidal adiation or active substances or alcohol addiction or very chaotic lifestyle. I have worked with various issues such as  depression, anxiety, stress, life transitions, peer/family pressure, carrer guidance, spirituality, self-esteem, relationship issues, autism, woman issues, bereavement and grief and others (please be in touch with either brief explanation of your issue or we can have 15min free of charge chat to see if we would be a good fit).

How much does it cost?

My fee for face to face in counselling room is currently 55£ per 60 min session.
