Niamh Govers (PgDip. Couns., Reg. MBACP)
I am a qualified counsellor trained in the Person Centred Approach, encouraging and promoting a healthy, positive change in every day life through self exploration.
Being Person Centred trained my focus will be solely on you. I will endeavour to provide a space where you feel comfortable to dive into your story, to lay it all out on the floor and together we can work to make sense of the difficult.
I work with adults and young people, short and long term, and my aim is that through our work together you will begin to understand yourself on a deeper level, accepting yourself along the way.
Whilst my original training is person centred, since qualifying I have undertaken various other training, particularly in working with men, working with trauma from early childhood, anxiety and working with attachment styles in relationships.

I feel finding the right counsellor is vital to your journey and so offer a free phone consultation in the first instance, this will give you the opportunity to find out a bit more about how counselling can help and how we could work together. Thereafter the sessions will last 50 minutes and will cost £45
My practice is located at The Shore in Edinburgh, this is easily accessed by public transport and has plenty of free parking around.
