Angela Scott trained initially as a couple counsellor using a psychodynamic approach. The term psychodynamic comes from the Greek terms â€˜psycheâ€™ meaning mind, spirit or soul and the Greek term â€˜dynamisâ€™ meaning force or power. This type of counselling helps bring thoughts from the past, or those in our unconscious mind into the present, allowing us to become aware of them and helping facilitate change and shape our current behaviour.
Angela also offers a type of counselling called solution-focused brief therapy. This kind of counselling therapy focuses on a particular issue and promotes positive change, rather than dwelling on the issue or past problems. During the counselling session, the counsellor encourages you to focus positively on what you do well, your strengths and resources and to set goals to achieve the changes you want to make.

He did his counselling training (a Postgraduate Diploma in Person-Centred and Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy) at the University of Strathclyde. Ryan is currently conducting research into the effectiveness of counselling especially for people on low incomes. He hopes this will form the basis of his Masters thesis in counselling.

Her approach is all encompassing and includes parts of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt therapy, Person centred approach, and present moment work.
