Heather Macfarlane
COSCA, Diploma in Counselling & Groupwork-CBT approach

I qualified as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist in 2009 with a COSCA accredited Diploma in Counselling and Groupwork. Since then I have worked with people on a wide variety of issues including OCD, phobias, general anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and weight issues. Although my training was in CBT I like to use an integrative approach as we are all different and respond to different ways of working. In addition to 1:1 therapy I have also delivered many weight loss groups and educational workshops for people using CBT and have written a self-help book on the topic.

I believe people seek therapy because they want to make a change in their lives. This can be scary, but having felt overwhelmed and anxious at times myself, I hope to be able to offer a supportive, calm, safe environment for you to explore your issues and work towards the best solution for you.

I am a Practitioner Member of COSCA, the professional body for counsellors in Scotland.
