Michelle Coughlan PG Dip, MBACP
I am a very approachable person and I have been told I have a calming manner. As a qualified counsellor, I can offer a safe place for you to explore the issues that are stopping you making the most of your life. There are times in our lives when we need someone to talk to. Sometimes friends, family or colleagues are not enough to help with problems of anxiety, abuse, bereavement or depression for example. You may need to talk about something that you don't want those close to you, to hear.
I provide one-to-one counselling for all kinds of issues that may make you feel you can't cope and are affecting your day-to-day life. My therapy sessions provide a safe place to explore what is troubling you in confidence and without any judgement. As a Person Centred Therapist, I can offer a caring confidential relationship on which you can focus on the problems that make your everyday life difficult to manage, allowing you take back some control.
I started my counselling training several years ago following many years in management within the property market. I started with my HNC in Counselling and followed that up with my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling at Strathclyde University. As well as my private practice, I also continue being a volunteer counsellor within an organisation and I have been heavily involved in counselling children at schools around Ayrshire.
