About us

Soul Restore Counselling is a service offered to Peebles and the surrounding area, with funding from St Andrews Leckie Congregation.  We offer professional Counselling with Counsellors members of COSCA.  Clients are invited to give a donation rather than a fee.  Our Counsellors are of Christian faith, and our service is open to all faiths and none.

The service is confidential and the approach is integrative, including some creative therapies where applicable.

Training, qualifications & experience

Counsellors hold a Diploma in Counselling, or at the end stages of their Diploma study.  Most work in more than one Counselling service and come as Volunteers.

The Counsellors have a mix of approaches, experience, and areas of interest and you will be matched to the right counsellor for you.  Areas of interest include, trauma work, creative therapies, person centred and psychodynamic, to allow the client to gently explore present or past difficulties.  There are no fixed expectations on the number of sessions.

At present it is an adult Counselling service.

Further information

The Counselling process may last between 6 - 21 sessions, the amount is dependant on your needs.  It is confidential, a safe space, allowing for a growth in self awareness and a laying down of burdens.  Clients speak of feeling more genuinely 'who they are' as the layers of self are uncovered.

Clients come to Counselling for all sorts of reasons: ie. Anxiety, Depression, Loss, Identity, Low self esteem, Relationship difficulties, Past trauma, and abuse.  If you feel you have something you want to talk and are holding alone,  then give Counselling a try.

Our emotional health is linked to our physical health, and one impacts the other.  Clients may present with physical symptoms, such as with panic attacks or insomnia, which over time of counselling often improve.  However we would encourage you to speak to your GP if you have any physical discomforts.
