Individual Counselling in Edinburgh 

Who Am I

Andrew Gaskill

I'm an accredited counsellor, with 9 years experience counselling teenagers and  adults.   Therapy in Edinburgh, in response to your needs -  Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Choice Therapy (also known as Reality Therapy), Solution Focused Therapy.  I also borrow concepts from the Human Givens model. 

The Focus

My focus is to help you heal, energize, and become aware of your inner strengths. This is achieved  by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a forward thinking revised outlook.  Is that even possible ?  I believe it is. 

Heard from the counselling room

   I'm using up too much energy worrying


   It takes a lot of effort to keep hating


   My biggest request is not to be judged


   Anger no longer controls me, I am now in control of it


   When I leave this room I am so calm, I react to things differently    now



Teen Counselling

This Welsh video clip looks at what it may be like attending counselling as a teenager.   


You do not have to do anything that you don't want to when you come to counselling.  However there needs to be a desire of your own to attend, not just the desire of others around you. 

A bit about me, and what happens in the counselling room

What will this Aussie counsellor in Scotland look like, what will he sound like, what will he make me do, is he weird?  Well now you'll know !!

Therapy

Your Mental Health

I am not so keen on the phrase "mental health" - I prefer to call it your "thought life health" .   Depression, fear, anxiety & panic attacks are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling, I'm  able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 

 

Specifics

Aspergers ?  Feeling different ?  Fostered or adopted ?  Boarding school ?  Third culture kid?  Come - you will be understood .....  Guys  - you think counselling wont work - come and give it a go - I promise that you don't have to do anything scary, or anything that you don't want to do !  Teen, adolescent, young adult, adult - you are  welcome here for therapy. 

Relationships

Relationships and family are what make our worlds work.  If your relationships are not benefiting you, let's find out why.      

ANGER seems to raise it's ugly head in  relationships. I believe, through counselling,  you can reduce your anger  substantially.
