Graeme Orr MBACP(Accred), UKRCP Reg. Ind. Counsellor
0141 530 5690
I am a Counsellor (BACP Accred.) offering counselling for both individuals and couples on the Southside of Glasgow.
You are not alone, problems can happen to any of us at any time in our lives. It can be difficult to cope with our thoughts and feelings. Often we can feel alone. If you are struggling; perhaps fighting depression, or maybe your relationship is causing you problems, or your self-esteem or self-confidence had taken a battering, counselling could be the way to go. It offers hope in getting to the heart of the matter and helping you feel yourself once more.
My clients tell me that they have found the courage and the strength through counselling to make the changes in their lives that allow them to live life to the full. typical problems that people will turn to me to address include:
Anxiety and low mood, stress in the workplace, for example with bullying or harassment. Relationships, perhaps you are anxious that you are drifting apart or that you fight all the time or even that you resent your partner. Perhaps you are struggling to make sense of things that have happened in your life a loss or bereavement either now or in the past that you just can’t move past. There are almost as many problems as there are people and it can make a big difference just to talk them through in the structure of counselling.
Counselling offers you the chance to find a way through your problems and overcome them. By offering support and an opportunity to work at understanding the thoughts and feelings we can work to change in a positive way. Working with me we will look at practical coping strategies and the changes that you want to make.
Yet, I recognise it can be daunting to choose a counsellor for the first time so please feel free to call or email to ask for more detail about your questions, all welcome without obligation.
I look forward to talking to you.
