Robert Beattie (MBACP) Diploma Person Centred Therapist
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I’m Rob. I'm a BACP accredited person centred therapist. I have currently worked over 3000 client hours. I currently work with in a addiction treatment centre supporting clients with issues such as depression, anxiety and low-self esteem. I also work as a relationship therapist for Family Action working alongside struggling families.
Is Therapy for you?
Do you want to live, enjoy and appreciate your life more fully? Feel more at ease and with a greater purpose? Are there obstacles, poor life choices, self sabotaging behaviours and addictions you want to overcome? Do you feel like something is missing in your life? Do you try to fill the emptiness with materialistic things and relationships just to find yourself still feeling discontent with life? Would you like more satisfying connections and relationships with yourself and your partner, friends and family?
What is Therapy ?
Therapy will offer you an opportunity to explore your concerns in a safe environment of trust and understanding. I am a qualified therapist with the right training and experience to have the space and time for you, so that you can explore and resolve your struggles and I can help you find your own answers. This process helps you understand yourself better and helps you identify with your patterns, and the reasons you feel and act the way that you do.
I've struggled too
I am a genuine honest man, who has also struggled with my own mental health and addiction problems in the past. This created poor self-esteem and low self worth. Taking the first step and reaching out was difficult, but it changed my life for the better. Without counselling, I would have remained trapped in anxiety and depression. Personal self development helped me explore my thinking and gave me an opportunity to change and grow into a more positive and happier person.
I am humbled to work with clients that allow me to walk alongside them and trust with their vulnerability, so that I can assist them on their journey of recovery to a better self.
To start your journey with me, call or email me in complete confidence to set up a free initial consultation via telephone or video call (approx. 20 minute); you'll talk about what you desire from therapy, and if you're happy to continue, we can arrange your first session.

I have over 20 years experience in a broad range of settings, working with client groups, adults, teenagers, families and couples. I have specialised skills in alcohol and substance misuse, working with anxiety, depression, trauma, sexual abuse, relationships breakdowns, sexuality issues and bereavement.
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.
