Isabel Crozier

Counsellor and Psychotherapist

*28/03/20*: Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, I am currently seeing clients remotely - by Zoom or phone. I am charging a reduced fee of £40 per session during this period. It's a precarious time for all of us - please let me know if you are struggling.

After completing a BA (Hons) in English Literature at the University of York, I trained as an English teacher and taught in Spain and then Chile for a number of years.

On returning to the UK I entered training at The University of Edinburgh on the PG Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. My training was grounded in both Person-Centred and Psychodynamic approaches and I have found that knowledge and experience of both approaches has given me a strong base in working with different needs.

I work in a very open and honest way and aim to remove any mystique around the counselling process.

Experience

I have been working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist for three years, providing counselling and psychotherapy for adults experiencing a wide range of difficulties.

I completed training with Pregnancy Counselling and Care (Scotland), where I worked predominantly with women experiencing a range of difficulties related to pregnancy, including fertility issues, peri-natal anxiety and post-partum depression.

I also trained with Health in Mind where I worked with individuals suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship problems, work and academic pressures, grief and trauma. I have a particular interest in working with bereavement, be that through a recent or more distant loss.

I am a member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Ethos

I have worked with many different people, from different backgrounds, each with their own individual experiences. I have always been profoundly curious about others and aim to foster that curiosity in my clients.

I am interested in the ways in which people create meaning in their lives and have found again and again that counselling and psychotherapy can help people understand themselves more deeply and bring about changes which lead to more fulfilled and interesting ways of living.

I am able to work on both a short and long term basis, depending on your needs and wishes.

How it works

I understand that deciding to embark on counselling can be a big, often life-changing, decision and it is important for clients and counsellors to be a good fit. With this in mind, I offer free telephone consultations for anyone interested in making contact by phone before meeting and to answer any questions about the counselling process. I am also able to answer queries by e-mail.

If you decide to embark on counselling, I offer a first session for £25. Thereafter, I charge £50 for a 50 minute hour. It is most common to meet once weekly at a specific day and time, however sometimes meeting twice weekly is helpful when clients are particularly struggling, whilst for others, meeting once a fortnight can be sufficient. This is all to be discussed during the first session.

My counselling room is located in central Edinburgh, EH1 and is easily accessible by public transport from all parts of Edinburgh and its environs. I am able to answer more specific queries about accessibility by phone or e-mail.
