Psychotherapy and counselling in Edinburgh, Falkirk, Stirling and Glasgow.

We are complementary health practitioners, not alternative health practitioners. This means that we work WITH the medical profession. If you have an illness or injury, or if you are going to embark on a new diet, fitness plan or if you have any uninvestigated symptoms, you must consult your medical doctor. 

Psychotherapy & Counselling provided in Edinburgh, Stirling,Falkirk and Glasgow

Stuart is a psychotherapist and counsellor. Denise is a counsellor. Both therapists have other areas of competence including coaching.

Both therapists provide general counselling as well as their specialist areas.

Stuart provides integrative psychotherapy, drawing on the wide range of methods he has studied since beginning professional practice in 1993. These are discussed below. Stuart specialises in anger, bipolar and depression management.

Denise is a holistic counsellor who specialises in combining counselling skills and coaching to work with female issues, moving on from abuse and moving on from offending. She is also a complementary therapist who uses Reiki and other similar energy techniques, and crystal therapy.

Denise and Stuart are also enhanced disclosure checked / PVG scheme registered for the provision of counselling to young people and vulnerable adults.

Solution focused psychotherapy is results and outcome based, but is often guided by theory and thinking from subjects including Eastern Medicine, Philosophy, Theology, Social Policy, Health Education and Psychology. Eastern models include Taoist healing methods and eastern Zen & Buddhist models including Morita, Naikan and Buddhist Object Relation Theory and Mindfulness. Meditation, Qi Gong and Reiki are also employed.  Stuart and Denise have completed a range of training courses and qualification courses in these topics and are committed to further University study of these topics in order to inform and develop professional practice.

Stuart is trained in cognitive behavioural analysis (including the CBASP method) allowing for deeper analysis of patterns and history than in general CBT. Analytic methods like situational analysis, significant other analysis, thought stream analysis, perceptual position analysis, desired outcome analysis, applied behavioural analysis and other related methods enable a far more specific analysis of the individual  history and presentation, as well as effective new behaviour and interpretation generation allowing for more adaptive and positive feelings and behaviours.


We support the AR schemes for hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and counselling. Both therapists are CNHC registered hypnotherapists (voluntary regulator and AR). Denise is a CCC & NACHP registered counsellor, and Stuart is a NACHP (National Association of Counsellors, Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists) practitioner,  and NCP (National Council of Psychotherapists) fully registered and Fellow Psychotherapist.

Some areas of psychotherapy and counselling - background information


Stuart in particular is an integrative and transpersonal psychotherapist who has studied and uses a range of methods according to client needs.
These include:

  • Personal Development psychotherapy: Using listening skills and appropriate therapy skills to assist a client in moving forward in their lives and tackling blocks and barriers to progress.
  • Personal emotional psychotherapy: Using listening skills and appropriate therapy skills to assist a client in moving forward in their lives and tackling emotional issues and problems.
  • Clinical psychotherapy: Due for regulation: Using only specific psychotherapy skills and methods to address clinical conditions and mental health conditions directly. This is different to our holistic approach.
  • Pastoral counselling: Using listening skills and appropriate faith related therapy skills to assist a client in moving forward in their lives and tackling spiritual and faith issues.
  • Couples counselling: Using couples facilitation and group facilitation skills, listening skills, negotiation skills and other methods to enable better communication and understanding.
  • Addictions counsellingUsing listening skills and appropriate therapy skills including motivational models to assist a client in moving forward in their lives and tackling addictions and dependencies.
  • Person Centred psychotherapy or counselling: A particular method of very much "listening skills" driven therapy.
  • Humanistic counselling or psyhotherapy: A method very much focused on achieving balance and progress in areas of life leading to an optimum state of well being.
  • Psychoanalytical psychotherapy: Traditionally psychotherapy with it's roots in Jung and Freud. Driven to tackle deep underlying issues and patterns. Business analysis and NLP analysis models are also common.
  • Transactional Analysis Counselling or Psychotherapy: Related to psychoanalysis it is a modern model of analytical therapy and uses modified patterns and terminology. Very useful in coaching and counselling methods, especially where relationships and interpersonal dynamics are being examined.
  • Primal psychotherapy: Based on Psychodynamic psychotherapy this deals with primal and crucial experiences, often using rich imagery in the therapy process.
  • Philosophical theory: A number of schools of philosophy in both the East and West have contributed a range of models and ideas relating to mental health and how human beings think.
  • Theological counselling: A number of religions in the East and West have contributed methods that can be used in a secular way to assist people. Just as many people enjoy Yoga or Tai Chi in a secular manner, so mindfulness and meditation techniques can assist without any religious belief. 
  • Gestalt psychology counselling: A model which is useful in a number of ways and is often used in coaching, NLP, counselling and psychotherapy. Particular useful models include explanations of how past events effect us now.
  • Ritual and Symbolism: A number of great thinkers such as Jung, Wagner, Freud and Nietzsche have contributed to the debate on how symbolism, art and ritual effect us consciously, spiritually and unconsciously. Various religions in the East and West have also contributed to the debate. These principles can be used in holistic therapy to guide personal medications and self development exercises. Many of the methods used are combined where appropriate in Transpersonal psychology / transpersonal psychotherapy. This does not mean having to convert to or follow any particular faith or belief. Indeed a strength of transpersonal therapy is to look at common themes in faith and non-faith societies.


Cognitive Behavioural Training / Therapy / Coaching / Counselling

CBT or CBC is referred to by different therapists as either Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or Cognitive Behavioural Training / Coaching. The difference is in the approach and practice style of the therapist. As the name suggests CBT is about:

  • Cognitive: changing perceptions and the way we feel about things
  • Behavioural: changing the way we behave towards things
  • Therapy: The change process (alternatively Coaching in CBC)
  • CBT may be effective in the management of stress related symptoms such as tension headaches (according to BMJ Learning)
  • CBT may be effective in the management and treatment of eating disorders and organically unexplained symptoms and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (according to BMJ Learning)
  • CBT is usually provided with either a counselling or psychotherapy based environment and is most often provided within a process of counselling, life coaching or psychotherapy.

CBT works best when combined with other methods and styles like life coaching and hypnotherapy. A good CBT practitioner will have comprehensive psychotherapy and counselling skills. A common form of CBT is "Stress Innoculation Therapy" which is a process used to address phobias, fears and feelings of discomfort.

Stuart is trained in cognitive behavioural analysis (including the CBASP method) allowing for deeper analysis of patterns and history than in general CBT. Analytic methods like situational analysis, significant other analysis, thought stream analysis, perceptual position analysis, desired outcome analysis, applied behavioural analysis and other related methods enable a far more specific analysis of the individual  history and presentation, as well as effective new behaviour and interpretation generation allowing for more adaptive and positive feelings and behaviours.
