Counselling is a connection between you and me. If you are feeling low, down, mixed up, confused, emotional and feel ready to explore what you are experiencing within a confidential setting, where you can be listened to compassionately to feel understood. The therapeutic relationship is built on trust and safety, which offers you an acceptance of yourself and an awareness of your own inner self. The process of change develops through your own inner connection with your self, shifting your mindset and reactions into choices of responding. Moving forward in your own empowerment and self-worth. Being confident in who you are.

There are many reasons why someone will seek counselling. Major life changes, even positive ones, can disrupt the balance of everyday life and impact our mental health. Traumas and experiences from our past can intrude on our peace of mind in the present. Bereavement and loss, illness and disability, relationship and work issues can affect our ability to function. Sometimes it feels like we have limited choices and we are unsure of where to turn to for support. Person-centred counselling is a safe and confidential space where you can be yourself and share what is troubling you.

Having gone through some of my own personal struggles, I know how important it is to have someone listen. To be able to vocalise your thoughts without any fear of judgment. Sometimes it can feel like the end of the road with no-where else to turn. It can feel like there is no hope left. Negative thoughts seem to go round and round in your head. This is the time to reach out and let someone help you. I aim to provide a safe and confidential space to work through issues and will use other evidenced based therapeutic approaches to suit individual needs, such as compassion focused therapy and mindfulness. ​

I’m Heidi, an experienced psychologist who works passionately to help adults overcome their problems, move on and enjoy their lives. If your problem’s been bothering you a while, didn’t really shift when you tried therapy before, or returned once therapy ended, you shouldn’t feel disheartened. My greatest joy and satisfaction is helping clients like you! It is possible to get so much more from therapy than simply insight or improved coping skills. Your difficulties don’t need to keep overshadowing your life. All human beings are hardwired to grow and to heal - and you are no exception.

I'm Dawn, I'm a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor in West Central Scotland. My aim is growth and development, not just mental wellbeing, because you know you are brave enough to live a bigger life - with better relationships and more satisfaction. ​People often think that therapy is where you go when you’re depressed, or anxious. But often, we’re like this because we’re living a smaller, less expressive life than we’d like. I have over 7 years of experience supporting people who are struggling and stuck for a variety of reasons.

Hello and thank you for looking into my profile. It can be challenging finding the right therapist amidst a sea of warm faces and shiny profiles full of experience. However, I firmly believe that like any relationship, the therapeutic one needs to feel like a 'good fit' too. This outlook forms the ethos of my therapy practice as a counselling psychologist where I work in collaboration with a client to bring change through the healing properties of a relationship. It is my belief that a supportive, accepting relationship allows for deeper self exploration and long-lasting change.

Firstly a warm hello! Finding the right therapist and booking your first  session can be a daunting experience, it takes a lot of courage to do so. I have years of experience supporting them to meet their goals for therapy. I could say a lot about my specific qualifications and the type of therapy I offer, honestly I believe all types of therapy can work. The most important factor on your journey I believe, is the therapeutic relationship you have with your therapist. Please take time to read about me and go with what your gut tells you (it's normally right)!

It's tough opening up to someone but we, via the therapeutical alliance, can create a safe space of trust where there is confidentiality, no judgment and that the client feels comfortable sharing. Here are some testimonials from previous clients for you to ponder: Social anxiety- My gran nearly fainted when she saw me ask someone who works in a shop a question, something I've never done in my life before. Trauma- Thanks so much for all that you've done, honestly you've been a saviour to me. Low self esteem- I've realised I'm stronger than I thought. Depression- You've helped me see that I can get the joy back in my life. Thanks.
