I am Claire Robertson the founder of Heartwork Services. I am passionate about Counselling. My approach to Counselling is open, empathic, and understanding. When working with you through the challenges you face, I value creating a warm, non-judgmental environment to help you feel comfortable, supported, and empowered. My aim is to support you on your journey to discover that you have the tools required to overcome the challenges in your life. I can also help you learn new techniques and develop other tools to make improvements to your sense of wellbeing.

Being a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) I have extensive training in counselling and experience of face to face, telephone, online, and walk and talk Counselling.
I have a masters with distinction in Counselling from the University of Abertay, Dundee. I offer individual Counselling supporting people with a variety of needs, such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and bereavement to name but a few.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
