The Practice : Psychotherapy in Edinburgh and Scottish Borders

I am a psychotherapist in Edinburgh, and I provide a space for the practice of psychoanalysis or psychotherapy in Edinburgh city centre and also in the Scottish Borders near Jedburgh.

I also provide online sessions (e.g., SKYPE, Telephone, Zoom).

Psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy is an open-ended conversation with no agenda and no time limit (i.e. number of sessions). The practice (Greek: Praxis) of psychoanalysis attends to the person who comes for analysis, to listen and witness their concerns, and to facilitate, if possible some kind of loosening of the strictures than bind and contort experience.

I work with people with different needs under the rubric of mental distress. I have experience of working with people suffering anxiety, depression, addiction, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, psychosis and schizophrenia type disorders. I also work with people who have feelings of low confidence, motivation issues, school/academic difficulties, and also sports people.

I also work in the area of Men's issues, especially male victims of domestic abuse.

I offer clinical supervision, academic support, reflective practice, facilitation of support groups.

"The psychotherapeutic relationship is therefore a re-search. A search constantly reasserted and reconstituted for what we have lost, and which some can perhaps endure a little more easily than others. True, in the enterprise of psychotherapy there are regularities, even institutional structures, pervading the sequence, rhythm and tempo of the therapeutic situation viewed as a process.... But the really decisive moments in psychotherapy, as every patient or therapist who has ever experienced them knows, are unpredictable, unique, unforgettable, always unrepeatable, and often indescribable." R.D. Laing, Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst; Politics of Experience and the Bird of Paradise, 1967, p47.

My Novel published in 2022: Gulag Caledonia: a story of a dystopian future Scotland set in 2050 ravaged by globalism, gender politics, cultural Marxism, biosecurity surveillance and eco-totalitarianism. This is the story of David, separated from his wife and children by the state. His father, missing, taken by the state years earlier, leaves a huge void in his life. David has been fired from his post as a post-doctorate researcher at St Andrew’s University; for the “hate crime” of voicing supposedly misogynistic views via his research findings. The story finds him on Digital Universal Basic Income, living in a soulless tower block in the suburbs of Glasgow, where no real community exists. The Scotland of 2050 is essentially an open prison where people are controlled, barred from the countryside and who have little hope of escape from the totalitarian system. David is summoned to the State Department of Work and Well-being. He is assigned to a compulsory six-month work and well-being placement at the protein factories on the remote Outer Hebrides of Scotland. What follows is a descent into reminiscence of his long-lost father, his childhood and philosophical and religious reflections which act as a critique of the time.
