Patrick Goodlet Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP
My name is Patrick Goodlet and I provide counselling in our practice, At Your Side Therapy, which I am a founding member of. I see clients in our offices in Livingston and Lanarkshire.
I offer a professional, welcoming and warmly supportive environment. I work alongside my clients in a completely non-judgemental way - you are the expert in whatever is troubling you or your relationships.
I have experience of working with a full range of issues which clients may bring and work with individuals, couples and families.
I am trained and qualified in bereavement counselling.
I have also carried out additional extensive specialised training in couples and family relationship counselling to Masters degree level.
My first appointment is a no-charge no-obligation session to find out if counselling is right for you and if we can work together. I want my services to be available to as wide a client base as possible and offer to adjust my client charges when appropriate.
I also offer telephone and Skype counselling to clients based locally and internationally.
I am a fully qualified and experienced person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist. For further personal information, please refer to my details page on the At Your Side Therapy website using the web site link above.
I am a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) . This requires me to hold insurance and work to the Code of Ethics of the main counselling standards authorities.
I also hold an additional qualification in clinical hypnosis. This approach can be integrated into my client work, where appropriate, for example with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-confidence and self-esteem.
