Counsellors at Counselling and Wellbeing Scotland are experienced in offering counselling and psychotherapy to a range of clients in various settings. We are committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy services of the highest caliber and our priority is client wellbeing.
At Counselling and Wellbeing Scotland you will receive counselling based on the Person-Centred Approach to Counselling. This approach was developed by Carl Rogers, and it is sometimes called Rogerian Counselling. It places the client at the centre of counselling which means that the counsellor does not see her/his job as giving advice or interpreting your dreams or thoughts. Instead, every CWS Counsellor aims to create a safe and caring environment and build a relationship of trust wherein each client feels comfortable enough to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences and undertake a journey to greater understanding, wellbeing and personal growth and development. CWS Counsellors are dedicated to honouring their clients’ perspectives and experiences.
Every CWS Counsellor has a unique professional toolbox of techniques, strategies and approaches to counselling that can assist clients in their unique journeys of healing, personal development and wellbeing. Every counsellor has a unique personality and experiences and, as such, counsellors may work in an integrative style that allows them to draw upon professional tools from a range of approaches to counselling and psychotherapy. At CWS we believe that different people need different things at different moments; however, underlying each specific way of working is the person-centred notion that every person deserves respect and that the client should decide what to bring to the counselling room. From there, the counsellor uses her/his experience and training to work with the client to create understanding and a greater sense of wellbeing.
