Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Edinburgh
Based in Edinburgh, I offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy to individuals who would like to understand themselves better and resolve the issues that may prevent them from enjoying fulfilling relationships and rewarding lives.
Faced with feelings that are confusing or overwhelming, we can feel very alone. Psychotherapy offers support in making sense of our feelings and finding our way forward in life. This can be particularly helpful if we feel stuck or repeat painful patterns of behaviour.
In therapy, we begin to understand who you are and what makes you, you. This insight can free you to function better and find new solutions.
A crisis or a painful life predicament often brings people to therapy. However, psychoanalytic psychotherapy can also be very helpful in addressing lingering dissatisfaction or disappointment, or a chronic sense of unhappiness.
I trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy with the Scottish Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists (SAPP), of which I am now a member. I am on the register of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). Both SAPP and the BPC are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
I am bound by the BPC’s Code of Ethics and committed to maintaining its high standards.
I have been in private practice since 1997 and therefore have over 20 years' experience in working with people from a range of professional and personal backgrounds, and many varied, complex life situations.
In my earlier career, I worked with several large business organisations. This has given me a personal understanding of the challenges and rewards of building a career and managing workplace relationships.
Born in India, I have lived in Scotland for nearly 20 years. My background and my travels have given me a wide view on our world with its diverse cultures, and has helped me understand how different we are, and also how much common ground we share as human beings.
In addition to English, I am fluent in Tamil and Hindi.
How to find me
Sessions take place in a quiet, private and comfortable room in the south side of Edinburgh. Click here for a map to my location.
As I am located in The Grange, between Marchmont, Bruntsfield and Morningside, it's very convenient for travel by bus and train. There are bus stops all around the area, and the number 5 bus stops right outside.
If you are coming by train, you can either take the number 5 bus from Waverley station; or you might prefer to stroll through The Meadows and up Marchmont Road to reach me. From Haymarket station, it's a slightly shorter walk, though you will be walking through lively areas such as Lothian Road and Tollcross before you reach the beautiful greens of Bruntsfield Links.
If you would be arriving by car, you will find plenty of on-street paid parking as this is a very quiet area.
There are several cafes just at the end of the road if you arrive early and want a bite to eat or a hot drink to refresh yourself.
