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

I have been qualified as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist since 2009, having graduated from the Centre of Therapy with a COSCA accredited Diploma in Counselling and Groupwork. I use an integrative approach to work with people on a wide variety of issues including OCD, phobias, general anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and weight issues. This means that although I use CBT mainly, I also integrate various other methods such as compassion focused or mindfulness based cognitive therapy depending on the individual 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.

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 an Accredited Member of COSCA, the professional body for counsellors in Scotland and abide by their code of ethics.
