Heather Whyte MBACP
My name is Heather, and I offer person-centred counselling, working from a therapy room in the Southside Counselling and Therapy Centre. I also offer home visits within East Kilbride, and I ask that for a home visit we have a private space where you can speak freely, and where we won't be disturbed for the full 50 minutes.
I chose person-centred counselling as I believe that people have it within themselves to make positive changes to their lives, and that it can be beneficial to talk things through with someone in a safe place where you can explore things without fear of judgement.
