Hilda Lawrie DipHE MBACP
Life can become very difficult at times. I am here to listen in a safe and confidential environment with an open mind and with no judgement.
I am a trained and qualified person centred counsellor and psychotherapist based in Dalgety Bay. I also volunteer for a counselling charity in Fife. I have been counselling for a few years now and have experience working one to one with adults from 16 years onwards.
Being a warm and friendly person I will aim to help you feel relaxed and able to share anything that is concerning you. I understand that the first step into counselling can be daunting and I will help you to feel less anxious. We will work out when is the best time for you to come along and get to know each other and see how person centred counselling could work for you.
Counselling is not about giving advice, it is about supporting you through stressful times and helping you to find a way forward. I offer a comfortable, safe space where we can talk openly with complete confidentiality. It can be a great relief to put your thoughts and feelings into words with someone who is not directly involved in your life and who will try to understand without judging.
If you want to change the parts of your life that are troubling you I am here to help.
