Nightingale Counselling Consultancy
Welcome to Nightingale
Our aim is to deliver a life changing and enlightening counselling experience to both individuals and couples in a safe and confidential environment. We aim to ensure that you are properly assessed and aligned to the most effective and appropriate counselling discipline that best suits your needs. At Nightingale you can feel safe in the knowledge that you have found a professional counselling organisation that understands the challenges and concerns you face when you decide to engage the services of a counsellor.
Our Managing Director and Senior Counselling Consultant, Florence Gray, has worked in private practice with couples, individuals and organisations for ten years. Florence carries out an Initial Assessment with every client, after which you will know exactly what type of counselling you will need to enable you to specifically address your personal or couple issues.
Nightingale Personal Counsellors are all qualified to diploma level. The counsellor assigned to you will have the expertise to work with your specific difficulty. One size does not fit all when it comes to Personal Counselling. We offer services in bereavement, eating disorders, anxiety, panic attacks, children’s counselling, anger management and depression. Counselling disciplines and methodologies such as Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Therapy and Integrative Counselling are used.
Nightingale Couple Counsellors are all trained, qualified and accredited by Glasgow Marriage Counselling Service, now known as Relationship Scotland, whose sister company is Relate. They have expertise and many years of experience working with couples, families, blended families, psychosexual issues and relationships.
The counsellors are selected for their talent, attitude, confidence, generosity of spirit and, above all, their commitment to their clients and the counselling profession.
At Nightingale, we are all governed by a code of ethics and practice of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. We continue to seek professional supervision and participate in on-going professional development in order to keep informed of updated methodologies and practice.
At Nightingale you will attain a deeper level of understanding and self-awareness and you will experience life changing and tangible benefits which will stay with you and serve you well for the future.
We guarantee an appointment within 48 hours.
We look forward to working with you.

Member organisations *
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.
Accredited register membership

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).
