'Therapeutic care & Personal Development - The solution to your problems is in you'

scotland psychotherapy psychoanalysis psychotherapist Edinburgh Glasgow Edinburgh

Psychotherapy, Counselling, Holistic psychology and Holistic Life Coaching in Edinburgh, Falkirk 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 in Edinburgh and Glasgow

Stuart is a psychotherapist and counsellor with a MSc Psychology. Denise is a counsellor and coach who also works as a mental health support worker. Both have qualifications at levels 3 or 4 in Psychotherapy or Counselling.  


Denise is a , NACHP and CCC registered counsellor, Stuart is a NCP (Fellow) and NACHP registered psychotherapist and counsellor.

We adhere to appropriate National Occupational Standards, carry professional insurance and are subject to therapy regulation. Stuart is a CNHC registered hypnotherapist (voluntary regulation of hypnotherapy).

We are integrative therapists. We have studied, and continue to study a wide range of psychology methods and models. We believe that each client or couple is unique and therefore we seek to have a wide range of therapy tools and models to draw on, in order to better help the individual.


Analytical and listening skills from psychotherapy and counselling are often used in coaching, personal training, NLP, hypnotherapy and generally in holistic and complementary therapies.

Both practitioners have specialities, but both also provide general counselling.


Integrative 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.

There are many different sorts of psychological therapy and theory.  These are combined where needed in integrative work. These include:

  • Personal Development therapy: 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 therapy: 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 specific psychotherapy skills and methods to address clinical conditions and mental health conditions directly. 
  • Pastoral therapy: 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 therapy: Using couples facilitation and group facilitation skills, listening skills, negotiation skills and other methods to enable better communication and understanding.
  • Addictions therapyUsing 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 therapy: A particular method of very much "listening skills" driven therapy.
  • Humanistic therapy: A method very much focused on achieving balance and progress in areas of life leading to an optimum state of well being.
  • Psychoanalytical therapy: 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: 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 therapy: 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.
  • Theology: 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: 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 these 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.
  • Eastern psychology methods. These include mindfulness, Morita, Naikan, Satori and meditation.


Cognitive Behavioural Training / Therapy / Coaching

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 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.
