My name is Elaine Corrigan and I am a Counselling Psychologist based in Edinburgh. I have experience working with a wide range of issues including, anxiety, stress, depression, low self esteem, relationship difficulties, life transitions, childhood abuse (physical, sexual, psychological) and neglect, complicated/traumatic grief and PTSD.
Background and training
Doctorate in Counselling Psychology
MSC in Brain Imaging
Honours undergraduate degree in Psychology
I have training in a variety of psychological approaches including Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT). I also hold qualifications to provide supervision for mental health professionals.
I am a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
Alongside my private practice I work within the NHS in adult mental health.
My Doctoral training in the person-centred approach and cognitive behavioural therapy means that establishing a positive therapeutic relationship is at the core of my work. I have a keen interest in working relationally, believing that difficulties in our lives are often triggered, or maintained, by our relational patterns and how we think, feel and behaviourally respond to situations.
I have further training in CFT, mindfulness and CAT and often draw on these approaches throughout my work.
My approach typically involves working collaboratively and alongside each client to explore their earlier life, particularly relationships, to develop a better understanding around how these, and previous experiences, may be continuing to impact in the here and now. Once we have developed an understanding of the contributing factors we will begin to identify areas which have the potential for meaningful change.
