New Book Launched

New publication on future of psychological therapy


Colleagues and clients alike are recommended to take a look at the new book Edited by my colleague John Lees. It has contributions from several other colleagues of mine, and I wrote Chapter 3. It looks at the future of the profession through a critical lens from several perspectives and would be very useful for a student therapist or new graduate.

Student counselling

Student counselling spaces available in Edinburgh

From time to time a dip in seasonal demand means we can take on more student counselling clients on low student rates. At this time of year most therapists are quieter than usual, and we are able to take on a limited number of additional student counselling clients.

Student counselling Edinburgh

Student counselling sessions with Scotlandtherapy start from just £25 per session, up to £35 per session and are highly discounted from full rate sessions.

Psychological therapies for Students Edinburgh

As well as counselling, students can access life coaching, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and Indian Head Massage for no extra cost.

Deeper psychological distress or mental health counselling

Student counselling services provided by universities are only able to provide light level support, general counselling and often a limited number of sessions. We are able to work longer term, with deeper issues and with more serious presentations.

Anxiety UK

Anxiety Conditions Edinburgh Glasgow Falkirk Stirling

Dear Colleagues in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk, Stirling
As we are all aware, money is tight.
Anxiety UK run a scheme based on ability to pay for people suffering from anxiety related issues.

Anxiety Conditions, Charity rates

This might include, IBS, GAD, NEAD, phobias and general anxiety / stress
I now have the facility to take a limited number of clients under this scheme in the above areas.
This is part of our non profit making (cost covering) scheme.
As some of you might be aware, I am an ASM (now Society of Stress Managers and CNHC AVR route) trained (psycho)Analyst, stress counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist, therefore specialising in this work. By all means ask me for details, but in brief this required over 200 client cases, over 1,000 client hours, external city and guilds assessment and since then I have gained a MSc Psychology. I am on 2 AVR schemes. I have regular clinical and peer supervision.
Please, if you can not help anyone with the above issues, pass on the paragraph below.
Kindest regards,
Your collegue, Stuart

Psychoanalysis Psychotherapy Edinburgh

Back providing Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Counselling, CBT, NLP Edinburgh

Sorry to say that both of us picked up a tummy bug via our work in the last week and therefore had to take time off to recover and then ensure we did not pass it on. We feel strongly that it is our responsibility to cancel appointments if there is a risk of passing on a nasty flu or other bug.

Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Life Coaching, Psychoanalysis Edinburgh, Falkirk, Glasgow

Since 1993, as a student and since 1996 as a full graduate, Stuart has provided Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, coaching, psychoanalysis, stress counselling and general health education training ( as part of a Level 4 NVQ Training & Development NVQ)

Standards for Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis, CBT, NLP

The most important standards are the AVR scheme standards. AVR or Accredited Voluntary Register are the registers maintained by the Professional Standards Agency. The PSA maintain standards for those healthcare personnel who are not subject to statutory regulation.

Denise is a CNHC registered hypnotherapist –  an AVR register.

Stuart is both a CNHC registered hypnotherapist and a FHT registered therapist, both are AVR registers.


Coming to the end of a day seminar on dissassociative disorder. An interesting day and good refreshment of skills. Already an area I (Stuart) work extensively with. Interesting to contrast a cognitive and biomedical model with the psychoanalysis model I use and was trained in.

Couples therapy

Couples therapy Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk

Stuart provides psychoanalytic couples therapy to couples of any sexual preference in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Falkirk.

Style of couples therapy Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk

Stuart focuses on psychoanalytic models, looking at perceptions, communication gaps and linguistics of the couple. This enables the identification of behavioural and perceptual patterns both of each individual, and of the dynamic between them.

This then translates into awareness and conscious choice. Exercises and “real life” homework are suggested to enable change to extend beyond the therapy clinic.
