About Me

Yvonne Farrell

Hello and thank you for visiting my website.


I am a qualified and insured Psychological Therapist, Supervisor and Trainer. My main approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) but I do have experience and training in Compassion Focussed Therapy and Mindfulness based approaches. I am also an EMDR practitioner in training.

Although I treat a broad range of issues, I specialise in the treatment of trauma. When I am not in private practice or training, I work for NHS Lothian in a specialist trauma service for veterans of the British Armed Forces. 

I have been practicing as a therapist since 2008 and have been an accredited member of the BABCP since 2011, a Clinical Supervisor since 2016 and an accredited trainer with COSCA since 2019. I am also currently a board member of the UKPTS 

When I'm not working I enjoy baking and watching movies.  Watch out for my many movie quotes in therapy sessions! 


I love my job as a therapist and feel privileged to join others on their often tough journeys to more healthy lives.  

If you feel ready, get in touch.

Thank you
