Ian Innes DipHE Couns., MCOSCA
As a person-centred counsellor I provide a place of safety and confidentiality where you can discuss openly what is troubling you, a place where you’ll be listened to.
It may be that you are stressed, angry, frustrated, anxious, depressed, feeling lost or simply stuck, not sure what to do or how to express how you feel. Maybe you have suffered a loss or a bereavement and need help to find your way of moving on.
I will be accepting and non-judgemental of what you have to say and I’ll work with you to help you find your answer.
I am a Counsellor Member of COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland) and adhere to their Code of Practice and Statement of Ethics.
'How can counselling help?'
I've had counselling in the past and know the benefits first hand but rather than take my word that counselling can help, please right click on this link to see my clients Reviews and more information on my website: https://www.ianinnescounselling.co.uk/
'What happens next?'
It's simple. Once you contact me, I'll get back in touch with you to arrange a date, time, and location for your first session. I'm very busy but I don't have a long waiting list, so once you commit to taking the first step and getting in touch, we'll meet soon after that.
'What should I expect in my first session?'
The first session is about seeing if meeting with me for counselling feels comfortable for you. It also allows me to hear what you are bringing to counselling and we can look at your expectations of counselling. The first session is about relaxing into a new, safe environment for you and to enable you to feel that you can talk about what is troubling you.
'How long is each session and how often should we meet?'
Each session is around 45 minutes long, or less if you feel you want it to be and we can meet as often as you'd like to. I've found that weekly sessions are most beneficial for clients as the continuity and routine helps their progress as well as the sessions themselves.
