Dr Fiona Wilson is a Clinical Psychologist and Practice Director of The Edinburgh Practice, a private mental health practice offering assessment, treatment and therapy services for children, adults, families & businesses nationwide.
Established in 2017, this award winning practice has quickly become a leader in the field of mental health in Scotland. The practice’s multidisciplinary team of professionals offers support to individuals, families and businesses nationwide.
The team is passionate about the work that it does and its members have joined together to offer fast access to assessment and carefully-tailored treatment for a wide range of mental health issues for people across the life span. Dr Wilson’s vision for establishing the practice was to help individuals and families to access every mental health service they needed under the one roof. It was also established to enable people to access the support they needed at their time of difficulty, without also having to handle a significant waiting period.
There is now a legal obligation on businesses to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of their employees. Strong research evidence demonstrates that employers who invest in the mental wellbeing of their employees see significant improvements in productivity and quality and substantial reductions in absence due to sickness. The Edinburgh Practice has been working with some of the big companies in Edinburgh and tailoring workshops to cover areas such as mental health awareness, resilience building, communication training and mindfulness training.
Dr Wilson was delighted to have been awarded the 2018 Young Business of The Year Award at The Association of Scottish Businesswomen’s Annual Award ceremony.
