About me

Hello. A warm welcome and thank you for visiting my profile. I am Neliona, a Trauma and Anxiety therapist based in the city centre of Edinburgh. I would like to start by saying that I have been where you are right now.  Anxious, "broken", perhaps very scared and confused with what's happening to you.  Battling with my own anxiety and trauma for years, I found great solace and refuge in my own therapeutic process.

I gently invite you to view anything that is going on for you right now as a symptom. Your "bad" mental health, your "brokenness" your endless worry, anxiety, depression, and racing thoughts that won't let you sleep at night are signs that your body and your mind want to heal and they are asking for your attention. They are an invitation for you to live your life in wholeness and prosperity.

What I offer in this process is a safe environment of empathy, acceptance and authenticity where you will be able to explore the roots of your psychological difficulties. A therapeutic relationship that will help you find the tools towards your healing and growth. I work in a Psychodynamic and Person-Centred way and I  incorporate inner child work and mindfulness meditation in my sessions.

In my years of experience I have worked with anxiety, trauma, depression, grief, abuse and work related stress. I have had extensive experience in working with anxiety and trauma and have made these two my areas of expertise. In 2021 I completed my training in EMDR Centre London which enables me to provide EMDR trauma therapy to my clients. 

I offer an initial session in the reduced price of £30. This will give us the opportunity to meet and see if we can work together. Please visit my website for more information and don't hesitate to get in touch.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
