Rowanne MacKie MNCS (Acc), MAREBT, HPD, GHR Reg, GCHP
I am an experienced professional offering friendly and confidential support through difficult times in a safe, non-judgemental space where you can talk freely, be heard and explore.
I care deeply that we suffer when our life isn't working as we'd wish, but don't know how to change or do things differently. I'm here to help if this is you, and I believe we all have the ability to change if we want to do so.
We work together to develop a deeper understanding of your issue, how the problem is maintained and how it impacts your life. I then share insight, skills and techniques you can use to empower and maintain your change and achieve your goal.
With my core training being CBT, I view issues from a starting point of how you think and behave. I then look to address recurring and unhelpful thought and behaviour patterns.
I offer are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT), counselling, clinical and cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy, coaching and 1-1 mindfulness.
We can work within just one approach or incorporate others. As I always work on a personal level with you, I can combine and integrate approaches in a tailor-made way that is cost effective and dynamic.
My specialist areas are:
- Overcoming Anxiety, Stress or Burnout
- Building Self Confidence, Self Acceptance & Self Compassion
- Fighting Depression & Low Mood
- Anger Management
- Sustaining Recovery from Addictive, Habitual, Compulsive or Unwanted Behaviours
- Breaking the Cycle of Unhealthy Relating or Codependence

As an AnxietyUK Approved Therapist I also provide therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries. I am subject to Anxiety UK’s regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership in addition to complying with the ethical framework and professional standards set down by my registered governing body.
Prior to training as a counsellor and therapist, I worked in demanding, high-stress environments and understand work-related stress and pressures of chasing work-life balance. In additional to my therapeutic and counselling skills, I am an experienced mentor, coach and teacher, trained in and utilised these skills in a variety of roles.
A series of major, personal life-changing events led to conclude that I wanted to train professionally in approaches I found personally beneficial and because I value the clear, relatively short and largely solution focused emphasis of these frameworks.
