About me and my therapy practice
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 prosper.
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.
My first session
I understand that the first session can be daunting for many people. Taking that first step to seek for help can feel both scary and freeing. I use the first session as an introductory session where you can tell me what brought you to therapy. We will get to know each other and feel into whether this is a good match and If you would like to continue therapy with me. Finding the right counsellor is important and some times It can take some searching and effort/time. The initial session costs £30
