About us

Working in different locations in East Lothian, the Counselling Consortium is a group of therapists with over sixty years experience in the field, offering a range of talking therapies including person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and solution focused. Your therapist might employ one specific form of therapy or she might combine a range of skills to best suit your needs. We offer both short term therapy, 4 -6 sessions, working in a highly focused way and longer term work which can span several months or longer, exploring more deeply the issues you wish to address and any changes you may seek to implement.

Ideally, counselling works best face to face but we can also offer online or telephone counselling where necessary.

We work with a number of client groups including individuals, children and young people and couples. and with a range of issues such as depression and anxiety, loss, bereavement and trauma as well as the issues listed below.

Therapy is not about providing advice or solving problems for you. Rather, the therapist will provide a safe space where they can listen and enable you towards a better understanding of yourself so that you can more effectively choose the next steps in your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

All counsellors are trained to Diploma level or above, University accredited. Continued Professional Development (CPD) is an integral part of the Consortium's ethos and each therapist commits to a minimum of 18 hours CPD per year and receives regular clinical supervision in line with the Code of Ethics for Good Practice.

Each therapist brings a breadth of different expertise and experience and this will be used to best match a counsellor to the specific needs of an individual client.

If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
