Counselling in North Edinburgh
Hello my name is Anne Waugh and I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working in North Edinburgh using a relational approach. I firmly believe we are relational beings.
At my core I am passionate about learning and development, my own and that of other people. It is this passion that has led me to change career and become a Relationship Counsellor and Supervisor. I am curious about what makes each of us tick and thrive in environments where we can practise and discover new ways of thinking and being.
I am committed to providing individual counselling and couple counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
Does life feel like its getting on top of you?
Do you feel like you need some independent, non-judgemental support?
Is your relationship going nowhere?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings
... to get back on track again
In my counselling venues in North Edinburgh (EH7) and Central Edinburgh (EH1) when I first meet with clients, I am often asked "... will counselling help me?" or "... how do I know this will be right for me?". or " we don't talk so how is couple counselling going to work?"
I believe that one of the best indicators of successful therapy is if the "client" feels comfortable and "right" with the therapist. Only you will know this and it is something that I think is worth searching for.
Individual and couple counselling can be open-ended or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
In my client work, I am repeatedly reminded how powerful and effective it can be to be truly listened to, understood and responded to. We can gain clarity and understanding, learn about ourselves and make connections between our difficulties-sometimes through exploring our past. We can find inner resources that we may previously have been unaware of or unable to access. These inner resources can allow us to feel capable of making choices, considering alternatives and to carry these through. It can be empowering and transforming.
