Maureen Day Pg Dip Counselling BACP
1 Gregory Road
Life, relationships and work can feel difficult and confusing and often create an inner anxiety that is diffiuclt to identify or live with or you may try your best and never seem to get it right, no matter what you.
This is often the point where a person finds themselves looking outwards for help. They may talk to a family member or a close friend. Others may decide it is the time to seek professional help from a counsellor. I specialise in working with people who are in situations like this or similar,I offer a personal non-judgemental service in a relaxed confidential environment. My aim is to help my clients feel comfortable with counselling. Clients tell me that they feel safe, supported and understood from the moment we meet until they leave. The experience I offer is that of a partnership where we work together to help you discover what you need or what is right with for you. I help my clients find the way ahead. My fees are £35 per session, £25 if you are unwaged, which lasts one hour fifteen minutes (25% longer than the normal session). I offer the first session for free on all occasions. This gives you the chance to get to know me and decide if you feel we could work together.
Many of my clients chose to work with me as I can help them with social anxieties, relationship problems, panic attacks, depression or other issues that arise from every day life.
I also offer Intensive Therapy, here my client will have one or more days of intensive therapy, where they dedicatae their time only to themselves. This is an effective way for those who struggle for time or need to resolve an issue urgently. Please see my website for more details http://maureenday.com/intensive-therapy/
I have no waiting lists and will usually be able to give you an appointment within 7 days. I also accommodate shift work and family commitments. I have offices in Kirkton Capus in Liviingston and also in Armadale West Lothian.
Please do not be put off by distance. Counselling via skype or email can be very effective and a great way to accomodate people with commitments at home or living in rural places. Whatever your circumstance, you can speak to me. I am here to help and make life easier. You do not need to be alone.

The cost of therapy with Maureen is £35, £25 if you are unwaged. This is for one hour and fifteen minutes. Longer than the usual hour of therapy that is offered. This is to give you time to relax and explore what is happening for you at your pace without bursting the bank.
I have premises in Armadale and Livingston also do email and skype therapy which is very effective. I offer the first session free. There is no obligation to continue with the therapy after this. I understand that deciding to start therapy is a big decision At the end of the session you will be given the options of either saying you will contact me after you have thought about continueing, making an appointment or saying you feel like therapy with myself is not for you. Parking is free and always plenty of spaces available.
