About me

Anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationships. These are just some of the issues we can find ourselves struggling to cope with in life. Person Centred Therapy often proves to be an affective way of helping us through such difficult times. My name is Shirlae Carruthers and I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I can offer one to one counselling from a quiet private room in the west end of Edinburgh a short walk from Haymarket train station.

It can be difficult to know who to choose when looking for a counsellor, so if you need help deciding if I'm the right one for you, I'd be happy to have a free, no obligation chat with you over the phone to help you make your decision.

There is no limit to the number of sessions you may have, you can have as many or as few as you wish. Some people may benefit from six sessions, some more than that and others may prefer to continue on a longer term basis if they feel a benefit. It is unique to each person and there is no pressure to continue once you feel it's time to stop. I charge £50.00 for a fifty minute session but, if you are a student, unemployed or an OAP, I can offer you a reduced rate of £40.00 per session.

So, if you are finding things difficult just now, for whatever reason, and feel you need someone to talk things over with, why not give me a call or drop me an email?
