Dougie Robertson MBACP (Accred) UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor
My counselling approach integrates talking therapy and the profound wisdom of mindfulness practice. I offer short and long term therapy and work with both individuals and couples who are experiencing mental, emotional or physical suffering such as depression, anxiety, anger, stress or a betrayal......
Whether your suffering is caused by:
- a relationship betrayal/conflict
- a recent separation or divorce
- family difficulties
- work issues
- a recent loss or
- a situations that you have little or no control over
Talking therapy and mindfulness practice offers a creative opportunity for change.
The way I work includes discovering that we have a choice. We do not have to be at the mercy of our auto pilot reactions (often unconscious) that can lead to cycles of suffering. We can learn to stop, and respond to our difficult feelings in a more skilful way - leading to improved wellbeing and feeling more in control of our lives.
I hold the belief that all human beings, with the right conditions, can transform their suffering and develop their natural potential.
I will listen empathically and non-judgementally to your feelings. At all times I will work with your safety in mind and be sensitive to the pace you want to work at.
Clients inform me that I'm an approachable person with significant awareness of cultural diversity. Whether you need help with specific issues in your personal or professional relationships or multiple difficulties from the past or present, either can be arranged.
