Dee Gillespie (MBACP)
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 are going through, 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 that 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 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.
