My name is Lisa Proudfoot and I have been practicing as a pluralistic counsellor, in Granton, North Edinburgh, for the last 7 years.


 I have many years experience in Social care, Health care & Mental health community settings, Learning disabilities, Forensics, Long term conditions, Dementia, Fertility issues, Sexuality issues, Eating disorders, Relationship difficulties, Addictions, Trauma & loss.


Sometimes when we become distressed, life can present us with many challenges. We learn to cope by using unhealthy habits like; over working, comfort eating, binge drinking, smoking, drugs, shopping, sex, gambling, social media to suppress our thoughts & emotions or sometimes we can become so overwhelmed by them that it can feel very isolating and scary. These both can have a negative impact on relationships we keep with family, friends, partner or work colleagues.


Is this something you can relate to?

What I offer

Therapy sessions

I can offer you a safe, confidential, warm & welcoming environment to be listened to, understood & responded to without any judgments. This can help reduce feelings of anxiety & isolation when working through your process.


I will facilitate you to explore any triggers that might be causing you any upset in the past or present, allowing you the space to move forward to a greater sense of wellbeing.

£45 for 60 minutes 

My current availability is on Wednesday mornings & afternoons only!!
