About Integrative Counselling with Vikki

*CBT and Integrative

*Mindfulness Based

*Explores behaviour and relationships

*£30-£40 weekly or fortnightly

My training and experience is fairly eclectic. My main Therapy Diploma included a variety of different approaches as well as teaching the structure and practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for mental health disorders. As a nurse I am aware of the modern medical model of mental health and have experience with working with, for example, depression, panic, schizophrenia, bipolar, addiction, obsessive compulsive disorder, personality disorders. My own counselling practice is an Integrative Approach.

I understand the person is innately whole and recognise the Inherent value in each individual. Each person can find their own solutions coming from within when supported and encouraged. Integrative therapy, while having an eye on what works for the many, nurtures the person to express from their unique place in this world. Each person brings to this world a resource within.

Integrative Therapy is adapted to suit the clients understanding and character. I prefer not to search for pathology but look at what capabilities you already have and grow them.

Integration is also an aim of therapy. To achieve congruence of body, emotion, thoughts, actions and how they express themselves in life. To make cohesive conflicting aspects of ourselves.

I also believe in the essential need to be close with others and nurturing relationships tend to be near the front of my mind with clients. Therapy works through establishing a genuine attachment relationship. It gives the opportunity to experience and reflect on how we react to increasing intimacy and to unpack problems together so they are understood when they come up in “real world relationships”.

Behavioural change is important to pull together the work you do in the chair. Analysis only goes so far. We learn from experience. Unhelpful conditioning is dropped by having new experiences. Behavioural work takes change into your physical reality. Im passionate about using behavioural and mindfulness based approaches with OCD and Self Harm.

Having completed around 1000 hours of experiential yoga and meditation trainings, these philosophies and approaches will permeate my practice. There is value in understanding what our body is saying and the potential to change your mind through the body. Thoughts are not the total of us. Conscious thoughts are often removed from reality and from our actual nature. I don't believe your anxieties and stress are you. They are your conditioning, that you can choose to keep or gradually change. Together we can find out more of what is you.

I work part time as a massage therapist at the clinic too and am able to take concessionary clients for affordable counselling on some week day lunch times. My fees are between £30 and £40 for 60 mins. I can accept card payment via paypal or online. Usually we meet weekly or fortnightly. The best way to get hold of me is to text my mobile on 07828807526 and arrange to pop in to Elmbank Therapies for a quick chat to see if we can work together. I am also open to working on a mobile basis for people with a disability-if you are interested in home visits please arrange an initial chat at Elmbank Street or a comfortable meeting place in Glagsow City Centre.

Kirsty Giles -

*Resource and Strength Focussed

*Understanding of family issues

*CBT and Theraplay trained

*Skype counselling

*£40 per session

My background in helping people is quite varied:I have been working in the health and care sector for over 10 years now, both with adults and children and young people.
I graduated with a BSc with Honours Degree in Psychology in 2012, with my specialist subject being Child Development.


​I have over 8 years experience working with children and young people suffering with trauma- related issues which has had an impact on their mental health. I am also a Theraplay informed Practitioner which I can implement into my therapy sessions when appropriate.

I can offer a unique service to families, couples, individuals and children and young people on a one to one basis or as a family unit. As a flexible and integrated therapist, I would tailor interventions based on your needs and goals for therapy. We would use the foundations of the CBT approach within our sessions and anything we decided to do would be decided together.

​You are the expert in your life and I, as your therapist, would provide a safe, consistent and welcoming environment for you to understand what the problems are and we would work together to improve your life. With adults I would be happy to have a free thirty minute consultation either over the phone or in person at my office to discuss what the problems were and how I could help.

My rates are £40 per hour for individuals and £55 for families/groups. You can contact me on ​07749152071 to arrange a chat.
