Ailsa Thomson, BSc, MSc, MBACP
At different times in our lives we go through challenges that can affect how we feel and have a negative impact on us. We all have unique ways of dealing with situations. With Covid-19 impacting on us all, I currently offer telephone appointments only at this time. If you are NHS or another key worker, I will do my best to accommodate your needs outside my usual working hours.
What I do
I am a Person Centered Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I can offer you that safe space where you will be met with empathy, respect and genuineness as we explore your journey together.
What happens next
You can call or email me to set up an initial session. We can talk about what you want to get out of counselling. If you decide to continue, we would meet on weekly basis from there.
