Hi, my name is Beth Laing and I am based in Tillicoultry near Stirling. At present, I offer person-centred counselling, anger management and counsellor support online or by phone.
Are you struggling with anxiety, anger, work or family situations? I am passionate about my role as a counsellor to share your story, meeting you with empathy and warmth. Counselling is not advice or friendship, but rather having someone to support you and listen when things are difficult. This gives you time to slow down and space to think things through. At your first appointment, I will ask you why you have come and what you you would like to talk about in our sessions. Usually, I offer fortnightly appointments. You can easily book and pay online on my website.
I offer an initial free half hour phone call if you would like more information about counselling, anger management or counsellor support. Please email me in the first instance.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience working within the NHS, bereavement support in the Third Sector and pastoral care settings within the church. I have also worked with families dealing with dementia. If you would like me to speak at your workplace or church please email me in the first instance. I am a member of the ACC and adhere to ethical guidelines where I attend regular professional Supervision and Continuous Professional Development.

I had the wonderful opportunity to complete some research during my MSc at Strathclyde University, on the experiences of counsellors whilst training and in practice. With mental health issues on the rise, I noticed how it is so crucial to have support and encouragement. I am offering counsellor support service to those who are either working or training in counselling.
