Hatty Scotland - Dips Counsc., Registered member BACP
Hello and welcome. Thank you for taking the time to look through my profile. I am passionate about supporting people to work through any problems they might have. I use mainly person centered therapy to help them do so, however I recognize that every person is unique and so I may at times include different exercises or approaches in order to meet the needs of my clients.
Therapy is offered in a friendly, safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment which allows everyone to say what they need or wish to say about what is bothering them or what is going on in their life and be listened to without being judged or offered an opinion. This empowers them to be able to work through their problems or worries and become stronger so they are better able to face what they are going through, become clearer and more purposeful and find their own solutions.
Types of therapy
Humanistic, Integrative, Person centered.
Clients I work with
Adults, Older adults, Organizations, Young people

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.

My first session
Initial Consultation | Free of charge
It is important to find the right counsellor for you, someone you can feel comfortable with. That’s why I offer all of my clients a free, 30 minute no-obligation initial consultation. At our initial consultation, we will have the opportunity to talk about your concerns and your thoughts that may have led you to seek counselling.
It is important to build trust and rapport within a therapeutic relationship so that you gain what you need from therapy, which is why it is so important to see if we feel we can work together. If you decide to go ahead we can book the first session and get started.
Concessions offered for
Evening and weekend hours available
As most people work during the day, I run my practice part time which means that I am able to offer evening and weekend hours. I’m available Monday to Thursday evenings up to 9pm and on Saturdays until 1pm.
