About me and my therapy practice
Hello my name is Rolain I am currently based in the city of Edinburgh and I have a diploma qualification in Counselling/Psychotherapist. I am registered with the BACP, currently working towards accreditation. Below is a list of addition personal development courses I have attended:
As part of my training and in conjunction with Safe Space in Dunfermline, I have worked with survivors of sexual abuse. That experience has helped me to meet a diverse clientele, in age, sexual orientation and traumas experienced. After graduating, I volunteered and later worked with a range of youth-based organisations, including Trinity Academy School, The Junction and Edinburgh Young Carers. As a private practitioner at The Edina Studio, I have worked with adults from various backgrounds.
My life experiences and the emotionally struggles I have coped with, have given me a rich body of knowledge, while acknowledging the impact of processing personal issues, such as ethnicity, race, depression, dissociation, trauma, anxiety, LGBTI and bereavement to name a few. Both the receiving and the giving of therapy has helped my personal development, as well as the academic training stated on this site.
In my practice I feel I have a natural sense for several therapy methods, such as Self-Compassion, Grounding, Art & Creative Writing but especially the Person-Centred approach, all of which help to support the process of change or acceptance.
