    My name is Stuart Morgan-Ayrs and I have been a practising psychotherapist, psychoanalyst and hypnotherapist for over 25 years. I now practice counselling & Psychotherapy in Edinburgh City Centre, and have an additional base in Falkirk. My main practice is in Central Edinburgh

    I am a multi-modal psychotherapist , trained and accredited to graduate and post graduate levels in a number of different therapy models. As such I am committed to providing psychoanalysis, counselling, hypnotherapy, hypnoanalysis, mindfulness and psychotherapy in Edinburgh, within a safe, confidential and accepting environment. Whether you need to tackle diagnosed mental health issues like anxiety and depression, or engage in a process of personal development (or both), I am experienced in helping individuals and couples, just like you. The psychotherapy process is often likened to a journey where the counsellor or psychotherapist accompanies and supports you in your process of self discovery. Along the way techniques like counselling, mindfulness, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and hypnotherapy (including hypnoanalysis) are employed. All are available at my central Edinburgh clinic. Cognitive behavioural and mindfulness based methods are often used to address surface issues and symptoms (like anxiety, depression and mood swings), while analysis, hypnoanalysis and psychoanalysis are used to address deeper underlying developmental psychological issues.

    You do not need to choose if you are interested in psychodynamic psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioural therapy or person centred counselling, you can contact me for a free information pack to see if attending in central Edinburgh is right for you.

    I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you through psychotherapy to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

    You do not need to have a mental health diagnosis to benefit from psychotherapy at my central Edinburgh clinic practice. Many of my clients come for personal development and improvement work, especially those wanting counselling or psychoanalysis. Others have no diagnosis, but are aware that they have developmental or trauma related issues and would benefit from some form of psychotherapy.

    My practice is located in central Edinburgh EH9 within easy reach of the University, the Meadows, Toll Cross and Marchmont. It is 10 mins by bus or taxi from the City Centre of Edinburgh, 25 mins from the City Centre on foot, and on direct bus roots from Leith, Granton, Newhaven, Trinity and most of the rest of Edinburgh. Being only 10 mins from the railway station and being near main bus routes means it is only 45 mins drive from Falkirk, or a short train ride from many other Scottish destinations.

    Latest news: my Psychotherapy and Hypnoanalysis practice in Falkirk is moving on the 1st of April. Email me for the new address if you are an existing customer!

    My ethos in providing psychotherapy in Edinburgh, is to create a multi modal service that can adapt to the needs of the individual client or couple. I trained in multiple modals of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy and counselling from the start of my career, and all along my approach has had the core specialities of psychoanalysis and combined eastern and western psychology. I have been trained, assessed and accredited at graduate and post graduate levels in a range of psychotherapy, counselling, psychoanalysis and hypnotherapy methods, including humanistic counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic psychoanalysis, and these are all available at the Edinburgh clinic.

    Latest news! As well as my Fellowship of the Royal Society of Public Health, I have just rejoined the Institute of Health Promotion and Education, with whom I am also a Fellow. The IHPE and RSPH are major professional bodies promoting health, education and well being, including in mental health, and related matters. It is a great honour to be given the honour of Fellowship grade. Their regular research and briefings will help inform my provision of counselling and psychotherapy in central Edinburgh and elsewhere. Even more news... today I received confirmation of another Bachelors Degree, this time in Philosophy and Psychology from the Open University. This BA (Hons) is very important since it underlines my dedication to being a polymath (qualified in numerous areas) and combining different styles of psychology, philosophy and ways of thinking to better assist my clients in my central Edinburgh psychotherapy and counselling practice.
