About me

Hello, my name is Rachel Gray, and I offer both short and long term therapy for individuals in the Leith area of Edinburgh. It can feel very daunting when you make the decision to find a counsellor; to acknowledge, even to yourself, that you may need support to work through a current or historical difficulty. Prior to working as a therapist, I worked for over 20 year with adults and children experiencing a wide range of difficulties.

At our first session, we can talk about what has brought you to seek counselling, and what you would like support with. I will discuss confidentiality with you, and we can explore together how you feel counselling would work best for you with regards to days and times.

I am trained to offer psychodynamic/analytic therapy, whilst offering the core conditions of personal centred therapy, which are, empathy, genuineness, and a non judgemental attitude. I offer a warm, yet professional space to explore issues you would like support with.

I work from a spacious, bright and sunny office overlooking Leith links.

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.
