Graeme Orr MBACP(Accred) Counsellor
I am an Accredited Member of BACP offering counselling for both individuals and couples on the Southside of Glasgow.
You may be struggling to cope with difficult thoughts or feelings. It can feel a very lonely place, with nowhere to turn. Problems happen to us all and at any time in our lives. If you feel overwhelmed; perhaps fighting anxiety, or your relationship is causing you problems, or your self-esteem or self-confidence has taken a battering, counselling may help. It offers hope of getting to the heart of the matter and in helping you feel yourself once more.
My clients tell me that they found the courage and the strength through counselling to make changes in their lives that allow them to live life to the full. Typical problems that people will use counselling with me to address include:
Anxiety and depression, stress in the workplace, (bullying, harassment or unable to cope). Relationships: are you anxious you fight all the time or that you are drifting apart or even that you resent your partner. Difficult Life events that you struggle to make sense of and accept; events that have happened in your life such as a loss or bereavement. Is it difficult to come to terms and you just cannot move past. There are almost as many problems as there are people, it can make a big difference just to talk them through in the safety of counselling.
Counselling offers you the chance to find a way through your problems and overcome them. By offering support and an opportunity to work at understanding the thoughts and feelings overwhelming you, we can work to change in a positive way. Working with me, we will look at practical coping strategies and the changes that you want to make.
Yet, I recognise it can be daunting to choose a counsellor for the first time so please feel free to call or email to ask for more detail with your questions, all welcome, without obligation.
I look forward to talking to you.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
