Laila Rashid is a Psychoanalytical and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Supervisor

I have a vast experience with Mental Health, Psychotherapy and Supervision for the past 20 years (initially overseas then in the past few years, in the UK). I worked as a volunteer; within the private sector, and as a private practitioner. I am a BPS Chartered Psychologist Associate Fellow and a BACP registered member for over 10 years, and as a supervisor, I also joined the RAPPS.

My first degree and training led me to graduate in Psychology in 1994; I now hold a Bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree and have undergone Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy training. During this time I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist and as a Psychoanalytical Psychotherapist with children, young people and adults.  Settling in the UK made me go back to University and I received a Diploma in Cognitive Neuropsychology from the University of Edinburgh (obtained in 2012).  

At the moment, I work in Edinburgh as an independent practitioner with Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy and Psychodynamic approaches. In the past, I have also worked as a volunteer within the charity sector with Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am bound by the BPS and BACP and code of Ethics and Conduct.
