There are limits to prevent the spread of Covid-19, but there's a lot we can do to control our mental response to it. Whether it's immediate short-term counselling support you need to get you through the pandemic, or long-awaited changes you've been hoping to realise for some time, I'm here to help. Professional counselling brought to you within the comfort of your own home or office, through Skype or Zoom.
Dougie Robertson MBACP (Accred) UKRCP Registered Counsellor
Providing confidential help and support for adults and young people from any background.
My 18 years experience includes running a successful private practice for 13 years and 5 years in the NHS.
I work from an intergrative perspective and include mindfulness practices to support the change process.
I've also had specialist training to enable me to work effectively with couples in conflict.
My clients inform me that I have significant awareness of cultural diversity and ethnicity.
In my own way being a therapist supports my desire to be useful and make the world a better place. For this to be realised we need human beings with fit minds.
On my journey through life I have discovered that I feel more peaceful and content when I'm practicing generosity. Generosity for me means a deep awareness of others.
I feel privileged and grateful to be engaged in the work of supporting others through difficult times. I presently run a thriving private practice in South Woodford E18.
In line with the BACP professional framework I attend regular clinical supervision. I also participate in oficially recognised CPD courses, workshops and retreats to further my development as a therapist.
I'm well traveled and have an interest in other cultures, which I believe enables me to work more effectively with cultural issues and ethnicity.
I volunteer for my local Buddhist centre and support mindfulness courses and meditation classes which are passed on to my clients on request.
