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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
