Meet me on You Tube
Hello, I am Irene MacDonald and am based In Kilsyth, North Lanarkshire. As a mature and experienced therapist I have developed skills in working with most of life's difficulties over many years. You might experience your problems as tension, stress, anxiety, or feel shut down and lacking in vitality. It could become an opportunity to grow and do life better.
I offer help with depression, anxiety, stress, and very many other symptoms of distress. For you to make progress in your suffering it is important (a) to find a therapist with whom you gel, and (b) the therapist has a wide range of skills to offer you.
I also work with children and young people.
In addition to working with every day stresses I have a special training in trauma, PTSD, complex PTSD and dissociative disorders, and the events underlying them (neglect, abuse, sexual abuse, traumatic deaths etc).
Why don't you check out my website for lots of interesting information which may help you in your decision. www.irenemacdonaldcounselling.co.uk
