Dee Gillespie (MBACP, COSCA Dip.)
Hello and welcome.
I am a qualified, experienced counsellor working in Edinburgh city-centre.
I work with people experiencing a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma and relationship difficulties.
Whatever you may be going through, know that you do not need to suffer alone. If you are here at this point then you are already taking a significant step towards writing yourself a different future story from the one you may be fearing. I encourage you to continue your journey and find a therapist who you have a good rapport with and who you can trust. My own belief is that this will be the most important factor in successful therapy.
For me, counselling is a collaborative process; we will work together to find a balance of processing the past, managing the challenges of the present and exploring how you want to move forward in your life.
At all times I aim to provide a safe, supportive environment where you will be listened to with care and respect.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked in various roles within Counselling & Psychotherapy establishments for over 10 years.
My core training was a 4-year programme in Transactional Analysis (TA) Counselling & Psychotherapy. TA appealed to me because of the high value it places on human connection, nurture and growth, and on the possibility to re-write our stories.
I would describe my approach as collaborative, flexible and empathetic. I will work to meet you where you are and to support you with whatever you may be bringing to therapy.

Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer an initial assessment appointment for £25. This is to give us the chance to meet each other and consider what it might be like to work together.
If we decide to go forward, appointments are £45 and are 50 minutes. Appointments are normally weekly and the number of sessions is agreed on an individual basis.
