Allan Lindsay. Lochaber Counselling
Based at Lochaber Complementary Health Clinic in Fort William, I offer a professional and confidential Counselling service. The therapeutic model which I work with is Person-Centred, sometimes also known as Client-Centred or Rogerian. I work in a supportive non-judgemental manner to help clients explore issues and difficulties, and support clients in making desired changes in order to improve emotional or mental well being.
Some clients enter counselling wanting to deal with a very specific issue and for others the issues are complex and intertwined. Sometimes the difficulties are recent or have been triggered by a recent event, but often the difficulty may have arisen a long time ago. What I have found unites all clients is that the issues they want to explore are having a detrimental effect on being able to fully enjoy life in the present, and that the client entering counselling wants to change something, or lots of things in their life. I have experience both of short term and long term work.
As well as daytime appointments, I can also offer some evening or weekend appointments if required. Skype contact is also offered for clients in areas remote to Fort William however this usually works best if we have met face to face at least once.
Appointments can be made by contacting Lochaber Complementary Health Clinic on 01397 702257. Alternatively, for general enquiries or if you wish to contact me direct please either drop an email or call or text on 07780 546191.
