Michael McGovern


    I am drawn to working with neurodiverse individuals, trauma survivors, and creating a place that men can be comfortable being vulnerable in. I endeavour to create a space of warmth, confidentiality, integrity, and inclusivity with all my clients.

    I have a wealth of experience in working with self-awareness and wellbeing, including topics such as owning ‘shadow’, anger, and shame, particularly within the context of men’s groups, and through the lens of spirituality.

    Hello, I am Michael McGovern, I’m a qualified BACP registered counsellor working with clients in Edinburgh, and online throughout the UK. I’m a Pluralistic counsellor which means that we draw on many different elements of psychology in our work together. Together we decide how we will work, using an approach that seems right for both of us. The Pluralistic approach fosters collaboration and empathy within our relationship. I try to demystify counselling, it’s important that the tools we co-create are practical for you.

    I work with anxiety, depression and meaninglessness, abuse, addiction, grief, loss, and bereavement, ADHD, trauma, dissociation, stress, relationships and family issues, men’s issues, suicidal ideation, rage, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, phobias, and Autism Spectrum Condition.

    I tend to work in blocks of 6 sessions. When we come to the end of a block we review our work and decide if we would like to continue working together. I do both long and short-term therapy.

    I imagine you have more questions about me and how I work. Please contact me, or else book a free, no obligation 20 minutes Zoom/phone appointment.
