Sammi Nisbet Dip Counselling & Psychotherapy. MBACP & COSCA
I am a fully qualified and experienced person centred counsellor and psychotherapist.
I can offer you a confidential and safe space for you to explore and process your thoughts and feelings. Sometimes life is hard and can be a struggle. We may look fine on the outside but be hurting on the inside.
Counselling can help.
Distressing life events can make it difficult to cope. Depression, anxiety, low self esteem and general sadness can take hold of us. Talking to a counsellor can enable you to deal with your problems so that you can begin to find your own way forward.
I can help you work through these feelings.
I am available for consultation from my private practice which is located just outside Bankfoot in Waterloo. This space offers a peaceful location which is easily accessible from all areas of Perthshire and beyond. Due to the Corona Virus I am now offering online and telephone counselling sessions.
10 minutes from Perth and 10 minutes from Dunkeld.
I am a member of BACP and COSCA and work to their code of ethics.
