Rebecca MacKillop PG Dip. Counselling, NPA Medicine Assistant
Hi I'm Rebecca a qualified, registered and experienced Counsellor offering one-to-one and online appointments in/around the Glasgow area. I have been working as a therapist for several years and I have had therapy myself, so I know how it feels to be you, the client, looking for help and wondering where to start.
Wondering if counselling is for you?
If you're thinking about psychotherapy/counselling, it is not unusual to put it off through doubt, doubting if therapy will even help, or even wondering if what your feeling isnt a 'big enough problem to speak to someone about'. This is a normal hesitation, and Im more than happy to put your questions and worries at ease. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That is why we will work at your pace, in a way that is comfortable for you in a safe and welcoming environment to explore these questions. Many people come to counselling for a huge spectrum of reasons. I work with individuals to give them the safe space and support to examine how past trauma and hurt is impacting their current life, decisions & relationships.
Flexible appointment times and online sessions.
I have later appointments & flexible slots available through Skype for those who work full time or have busy schedules.
I offer an integrative approach combining person-centered & a psychodynamic approach. My education in other psychology fields and personal experience of holistic lifestyle practices weaves into my work, to give you the client a truly flexible and tailored support.
By combining multiple disciplines and training, we can work together in a way that feels right for you. I believe in exploring our ‘inner world’ through genuine connection with someone else that can put your needs and experiences at the center of the work. I consider it a privilege to be involved in my clients journey towards integration & wholehearted living, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Appointments can be weekly, fortnightly, or whatever frequency suits you best.
