The Shieling, Barrpath.
I offer Counselling for Couples and Individuals in Kilsyth and via telephone and video calls. I will work with you to help you make sense of difficult, confusing or unsatisfactory situations in life. My aim is to provide you with a comfortable and confidential space where you can explore and express your concerns, and for you to find ways that will help move you to a more satisfactory place.
There are many issues that bring people to counselling, such as:
It could also be nothing specific but our confidence or self-esteem is affected in some way that leads us to feeling stuck. Whatever the reason for seeking support, I will work with you in a way that allows you to be at your own pace and to concentrate on what is important to you.
Choosing a therapist can be quite daunting, for this reason I offer a free telephone consultation that can be arranged at a time to suit you. This will allow both you and I to consider the benefits of working with each other. Or you can simply arrange an appointment through the email contact. I work in an ethical honest way with my clients so as to enable them to move to a more comfortable place in their lives.
I have over 18 yearsâ€™ experience of working with individuals, couples and families. If you are interested in therapeutic models, I work as an integrative therapist utilising various models to suit particular dynamics that occurs in the counselling process. These models are indicated in my training and experience below.
