Eilidh Laird - Person Centered Counsellor (MBACP)
Hello my name is Eilidh, I have been a qualified counsellor for over 5 years. I feel counselling is a great way to have a confidential space where you can work through what is going on for you without judgement, you can say what you think or feel. I am here to listen and help you challenge thoughts, feelings and behaviours that you would like to address or work through a difficulty that is causing you distress.
I am person centred trained, but have also gained experience in other areas of counselling like CBT . I adapt my approach to suit you, and help you get what you need from counselling.
I have previously worked for a bereavement charity, and for a children’s charity, and have worked with a range of challenges people experience, including anxiety, depression, anger, suicidal thoughts, loss, sexuality, gender, relationship problems, identity and autism.
At the moment, I am working online, using zoom; and currently have the below slots available:
- Wednesday morning
- Thursday morning
- Monday evening
- Sunday afternoon
50 minute session is £38, payment is in advance, less than 24 hours cancellation notice requires payment.
A block of six sessions can be booked for £210.
If you would like to discuss working together please contact and leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Training, qualifications & experience
I initially completed a Degree in Psychology and then a Level 4 Diploma in Counselling. I mainly work in a person-centred way but have had training in other counselling areas and bring in different approaches where I think it could be helpful.
I have previously worked as a counsellor in schools and charities with young people and adults.
Before I was a counsellor I worked in care and learning disability settings, supporting people with their physical and mental health.
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).
