"The way I think and feel about myself has changed dramatically since seeing Moira. I was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from an incident at a young age and didn’t even know it! So many aspects of my life were affected by the hurt, guilt and worthlessness I felt, but when Mo worked with me, using EFT, I was finally set free from it. I feel such a HUGE weight off my shoulders, and I now am actually happy with just being me*.finally!!!! I just cant believe that 1 hour with Mo has made such a massive difference. I have, and will continue to highly recommend her amazing work."

The GP registrar year is extremely challenging and after failing the AKT I found I had lost a lot of self confidence. As a result I was often struggling to focus on work and studying for the next exams. A week before resitting the AKT I was particularly fragile. Moira offered me a trial session of EFT. I was amazed how in just a few minutes she had enabled me to see what some of the blocks were in my thought processes which were resulting in my lack of confidence. I have no doubt that Moira is very skilled at using EFT, not least because she has an enormous amount of empathy and intuition. I was very moved by the experience and amazed at how much better I felt. I continued to use the EFT techniques leading up to the exams. I am sure that EFT contributed to me success in resitting the AKT and latterly the CSA. I would not hesitate to recommend EFT to any registrars who may be having similar difficulties.

My Therapy Style

My therapy style utilizes a combination of listening and observation.  As a therapist, I will endeavour to enable you to feel as comfortable as possible. I will always create a therapy environment where you can speak openly. You can be confident that I will always understand your point of view and never judge you.

Emotional self-honesty is very important if therapy and EFT are to work efficiently.  I will help you to locate the source of your stress and depression and using EFT remove their effect on you.

My therapy approach is based on intuition and observation; be it of body language and facial expression, or if we are having a telephone counselling session, the subtle tones of your voice.  Using my natural intuition and sensitivity, I will tune into your answers to my questions and also into your feelings about what you’re telling me.

I then select the most suitable counselling approach for your unique situation, which will bring the quickest relief for the stress and depression you are experiencing.

The Therapy Process

Depression is a multi-layered problem and usually stems from a number of different aspects or root causes.  During our therapy sessions, I will ask gentle questions, and help you isolate the different feelings/aspects of your depression.

Should you be comfortable voicing one of these feelings/aspects, we can then progressively work through it, using EFT, until the emotions attached to it are cleared.

However, should one of these aspects cause you extreme pain and/or you are not comfortable telling me about it, then there are various ways we can approach it without you ever having to voice exactly what it is.

To begin with, you can give the aspect of your problem a name, something which you connect with it, but which doesn’t tell me anything.  We can then use EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to clear the emotions surrounding this aspect of your depression using the name given to it by you.  As long as you are thinking about the aspect when we do the tapping round, I never need to be told what it is you’re thinking about.  This is the wonderful way in which EFT works.

My goal is to emotionally support you through counselling while you become the person you were meant to be and show you how to clear these negative thoughts and feelings that are causing your depression so that you can reclaim your life from the dark pit called depression.

Call me today for your free 15 minute phone consultation and we can discuss your way forward.  I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have, as I want to ensure you are comfortable during your therapy sessions with me if we decide that I am the best therapist for you.

As a therapist Mo is brilliant. I had experienced EFT before but not managed to make much progress. Mo is different as she really listens and makes an effort to deeply understand how I feel. Her real compassion and support has been demonstrated by her going 'above and beyond' on many occasions. With a depth of insight, Mo is decisive when she sees a need and has proved that EFT can really help. I really am very grateful for everything she has done for me."

During my worst ever bout of depression I had just about given up on all hope of ever feeling happy ever again. Having tried other treatments for my depression, I decided I needed a new fresh approach.
Then I discovered Mo and EFT, and my life began to turn around! Even upon my first meeting with Mo I felt instantly at ease and that I was with someone who genuinely cared and also actually understood how I was feeling.

Through Mo's careful patience and amazing intuition, combined with EFT techniques, I discovered the root of my depression was due to a childhood speech problem, which had affected my confidence, relationships with others and overall opinion of myself. With Mo's help the clouds gradually began to lift and I started to feel more positive, assertive and content within myself.
I have continued to use the techniques that Mo taught me and would completely hand on heart recommend Mo as a counsellor, and EFT. Mo has always been there to help me when I needed her and I am forever indebted to her for helping me to find 'me' again.

Thank you Mo, JMM, Edinburgh



“Mo gently & professionally helped me to locate the underlying reason for my low self-esteem, lack of confidence and depression. This was due to a childhood separation issue. One which I thought I had coped with and forgotten about. Using counselling, EFT, and working with my inner child, she helped me to locate & release the deep-rooted hurt & guilt I was carrying. I now see my life clearer, my depression has lifted, and I have more confidence in myself.
