Sally Railley - Psychotherapy
The Old Airdrie Savings Bank
My counselling office space in Airdrie Town Centre provides a nice, relaxing, quiet space for us to develop a trusting relationship that will become a safe space for you to begin to discover the source of your issues and ways we can bring acceptance and understanding to your experiences.
As our relationship develops we can start to work through what is troubling you together, at a pace that suits you. Having therapy is one of the best things you can do for yourself as not only will it help you to bring acceptance to issues that you have, it will bring about a knowledge of yourself you never had before.
I work with anyone aged 4 upwards and have a specially designed office to facilitate the necessary therapy for all age groups. Click on the link above which will direct you to my website for more information about me and how I work.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have a particular interest in counselling individuals on the ASD spectrum, i.e Asperger's and autism. Also anyone from any religion or background/culture that is suffering from any kind of abuse. I have also had success counselling individuals from the LGBT community with issues relating to gender and/or sexuality.
My work with children also means I have gained quite a bit of experience in this field. I would recommend my free half an hour phone call initially to assess your child and to discuss the best ways of moving forward within the therapeutic field. Whether that would be with me or we could discuss a suitable referral.
I charge £40 per session. A session lasts 50 mins.
I currently manage a project for Place2Be, within a primary school in Ayrshire. Place2Be is a children's mental health charity based in schools across the UK. I previously volunteered with Place2Be for a year within a secondary school in Glasgow and this means I have experience of child counselling from ages 4-15.
I have also volunteered within a further education establishment within Glasgow. This position has provided me with experience of working with a diverse range of clients, especially with different race, religion and cultures and many cultural traditions that may have caused detrimental effects and trauma, such as FGM (female genital mutilation) and asylum seekers who are traumatised by what they have been through before coming to the UK.
