Tanya Beetham, MSc, Registered and Accredited MBACP
Hi, welcome to my page. I am a counsellor and psychotherapist based in Bridge of Allan, Stirling. I work with adults and young people (13+). I work part-time in my private practice where I provide a safe and welcoming space for you to explore and work through the things that brought you to therapy.
People come to therapy for a range of reasons. It can be useful to share the things that are causing you worry or distress, with a person who can help to make sense of some of these concerns and support you to a place that feels better for you. I am trained in humanistic integrative counselling and psychotherapy. This means that I treat each person individually, and we will work at your own pace, exploring the issues that you identify as important to you. I work in a non-judgemental way, and I believe the therapist-client relationship is important. This means that I build relationships based on mutual trust.
Areas of specialism
I am registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Prior to my private practice, I worked in a variety of settings providing counselling and psychotherapy. I have been in practice since 2013. I have worked with adults and young people in school and university settings, the NHS, a women’s counselling centre, and most recently, the majority of my practice has been with young people/young adults who have experienced trauma, and who are looked after or adopted. I am trained to work with adults and young people (13+) experiencing a range of psychological and/or emotional difficulties.
What if I have some questions about therapy?
There are a few ways of working out if you think I can help. You are welcome to email me, and we can discuss any questions you might have over email. We can also talk for 30 minutes on the phone. This might help if you are not sure how you might get on with me, or if you have any questions about how we might work together. I do not charge a fee to talk with you on the phone.
You are also welcome to book an initial appointment for 50 minutes, where we can discuss the issues that bring you to therapy, and how I might help. I charge a fee for this session. Be reassured that choosing to come for an initial session, or to talk on the phone or via email, does not mean that you are obliged to work with me. I will do what I can to help you to make a decision that is right for you.
