Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.


why do you need therapy

Why do you need theraphy

People usually come to therapy when they feel that they no longer have the ability to deal with the difficulties they are experiencing.

When the previous ways of coping and support by friends and relatives are not enough to offer them the solutions and relief they seek.

It is a therapeutic relationship of acceptance, respect and confidentiality with a therapist that can provide a safe space for us to talk about our difficulties, explore their origins and find helpful ways to deal with those.

Therapy is based on an integrated approach in which different approaches are being used depending on individual needs, including a person-centred approach, cognitive behavioural therapy, self-compassionate approach and systemic therapy.

Through this process we might find alternative perspectives and possibilities, enhance our personal functioning and find tools in order to reduce our psychological distress.

Evangelia Psychology in Edinburgh

Evangelia Botsaki

Psychologist & Psychotherapist

I am originally from Athens, Greece where I spent the first 26 years of my life and I completed my first bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, Pedagogy and Psychology

During the early years of my career, I supported children and young people’s personal development and wellbeing in a variety of settings by combining my education and my love for the theatre and the creative arts, working as a theatrical games group facilitator in nurseries, summer camps and a charity for Roma children.

I have also gained an invaluable experience working as a trainee counsellor in schools providing interventions against bullying and as a therapeutic support worker for teenagers addicted to drugs in a Centre of Therapy for Addicted People.

I moved to Edinburgh, Scotland more than 10 years ago, where I studied psychology at Napier University and went on to complete an MSc in Children and Young Mental Health from the University of Edinburgh. During this period, I worked as a support worker for children and young people with ASD in a nursery setting, and for a charity which supports lone parent families (FirstHand).

My experience

During my diploma and until I entered a private practice, I provided one to one therapy sessions to individuals experiencing anxiety and low mood and I developed and co-facilitated specialised workshops to psycho-educate and empower individuals on the topics of depression and challenging negative thinking at the Centre of Therapy, The Health Agency, the Scottish Association for Mental Health.

For the last few years, I have been with Psychology in Edinburgh  offering one to one therapy sessions for people experiencing a variety of difficulties including, anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety and agoraphobia, low mood, depression, trauma, low self-esteem and negative thinking, relationship issues and anger management.

My rol as a Psychotherapist

I am interested in listening to your story in a non-judgemental way and to help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and others. My goal is to help you find your own solutions – whether that is making effective changes in your life or finding ways of coping with your problems. Therapy is a safe and confidential space for you to talk about any issues or concerns you might have no matter your background.

I will be happy to answer any questions you might have. Please do not hesitate to contact me or the centre if you need any further information.

Languages: English and Greek

closeness, trust, growth, learning, humanity, acceptance, self-compassion

How we’ll work

The first session is an assessment one in which we can talk about the issues that brings you to therapy, what are your expectations and goals from therapy and how we can work together.

In the sessions afterwards we can further explore any issues affecting your life and help you find a way move forward.

The goal is for you to find effective ways of coping with your difficulties on the here and now, by becoming more aware of repetitive patterns of interpretation and behaviour, which can impact the view that you hold for yourself and others, the quality you experience on your interpersonal relationships (friendly, romantic, professional) and the feeling of satisfaction for your everyday life.

Together, we can work to find ways to better deal with a variety of issues, including anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety and agoraphobia, low mood, depression, trauma, low self-esteem and negative thinking, relationship issues and anger management.

Therapy sessions are offered on a face to face and online basis based on your needs. The frequency (weekly or every second week) and number of therapy sessions is also depending on your preferences and needs.
