Aelrid Turner (MBACP)
Hello, my name is Aelrid. I am a counsellor based in the Southside of Glasgow.
I work from home, which allows flexibility in when I can see you. This has also enabled me to create a space that I feel is comfortable and calming, where I hope you will feel welcomed and safe to begin exploring what you would like to work on.
Whether you are looking for short-term therapy (4-6 weeks) or longer-term counselling, I offer a working relationship that is safe, compassionate, boundaried and confidential.
I will work with people of any gender, race, age, sexuality, class or religion.
I welcome initial contact by phone call or email, where I’ll be happy to answer questions you may have.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training has been specifically focused on Relationship Counselling, which means I am qualified to work with both couples and individuals.
I have an integrative approach, using both psychodynamic and systemic practices.
Psychodynamic theory is really the belief that our childhoods, particularly how we attach to our caregivers, impact who we are today and how we connect to others. Trying to understand this all a bit better can really alleviate some of the issues we carry and bring to counselling.
Systemic theory is also known as family therapy. It encourages us to look outwith ourselves, considering the influence that family, community and our environment has in recovery and our psychological health.
