Forth Counselling | Robert Backai MSc, Dip CBT (BACP, SEA/UKCP)
Hello and welcome. Thank you for considering me to help you feel better, stronger and healthier. Maybe you want to do more of the things you like or want to enjoy life a bit more, especially now when everything seems unknown, uncertain and always changing. Perhaps you are grieving the loss of a loved one and life just doesn’t feel the same. Counselling and CBT can help.
Feeling anxious, worried or sad can be overwhelming and seem hard to overcome. Talking to a trained therapist about your feelings and difficulties can help you understand and process them in healthier ways and lead to feeling better about yourself, others and the world.
Through counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) we can explore and seek solutions to areas of life you are finding difficult or challenging, be it anxiety, anger or low mood among other things. We can work with difficult life changes such as bereavement, divorce, cancer or other medical diagnoses.
Talking helps, and exploring the challenges and difficulties we face, while trying out new ways of thinking and being can make us stronger, more resilient and see things differently. Life will always challenge us in some ways, yet we can learn how to face these challenges in healthier and more positive ways, and bounce back stronger after difficult events.
I believe that things can change and that life can, and does get better.
I look forward to working with you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
