About me

My name is Roxy Linh-McCormack, I am a qualified Pluralistic Counsellor and Psychotherapist working with adults (18+) face to face in Dumfries and Online.

You're possibly considering making some changes in your life or looking for some support to address difficulties that are holding you back. 

You may be experiencing low self-esteem, having difficulty managing emotions or feeling dissatisfied in your relationships. 

You might be struggling following one or multiple traumatic experiences or having difficulty coping with life or the loss/death of someone. It can be too difficult for some people to articulate exactly what is impacting you. 

Counselling offers a chance to talk about you, your life, and your challenges. It can allow you the space to speak to someone who may help you make sense of how you're feeling and thinking.

I believe anyone can benefit from having a safe and confidential space to explore difficult thoughts, beliefs, emotions and behaviours. I will listen with compassion and help you explore and better understand whatever is going on for you. 

"Most of the old moles I know wish they had listened less to their fears and more to their dreams" (Charlie Mackesy)  

What I can offer you

When commencing sessions, I draw on all the skills I have gained throughout my varied careers and experience, adapting this skillset to fit with your preferred therapeutic style. I may draw upon person-centred, CBT, Psychodynamic and creative practices (utilising stones/art or writing).

I have experience working with clients who have a wide range of difficult areas or issues. We will collaborate to gain a shared understanding of where you are and your therapy goals.

I can support with areas such as Anxiety, Bereavement, Burnout, Coping Skills, Caring roles, Dementia, Depression, Domestic Abuse, Emotional Abuse, LGBTQ+, Loneliness, Low self-esteem, low self-confidence, OCD, Relationship Problems, Self-harm, Separation and divorce, Sexual abuse, Stress, Sudden sensory loss, Suicidal Thoughts, Trauma, Work-related stress. 

I have extensive experience working with Unpaid Carers and individuals with sensory loss. In addition, I have a particular interest in bereavement, childhood trauma and compassion fatigue/moral injury/work-related stress. 

Please visit my website for any further information and to gain a greater insight into who I am. 

I look forward to chatting with you all.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
