Jim Dickson. PgDip Counselling. Reg MBACP.
I believe that there are times in most peoples lives when we feel in emotional turmoil, are searching for understanding or a solution to the difficulties we may be experiencing. At these times counselling can help. Central to my work is building a therapeutic relationship based on trust, warmth, respect and acceptance whilst helping clients to locate and use their own resources, resolve problems and difficulties and to find better ways of managing their lives.
If you are seeking help, I offer a safe, comfortable space, where we can work together. My practice is based from premises in the West End of Edinburgh. I have daytime and evening appointments available, to help fit around busy lives.
