Anna Rahimian - Children And Young People's Counsellor MBACP

About me

I believe that counselling offers children a unique opportunity to explore their feelings and experiences in a new way. Through the use of art and play and a combination of child-led and directive work, I aim to help children tell their story, make sense of it and discover new ways of coping.

I work in a playroom full of toys and art materials. Play is the most natural way that children communicate and understand the world and so is a vital part of my work with children.

I have 10 years of experience of working therapeutically with children and qualified as a child and young people's counsellor in 2016. Alongside my private work, I am also a manager in children and young people's counselling and therapeutic support service working with children across Edinburgh.

It can feel daunting bringing your child to counselling and entrusting them to an adult that you don't know. It is important that you find a counsellor that you/your child feels comfortable with. In order to help you do this, I offer an initial appointment at a reduced fee of £15. This is a chance for you/your child to meet me and for me to understand more about the difficulties your child is facing.
