Counselling and psychotherapy from North Edinburgh
Hello my name is Anne Waugh, thanks for visiting.
I will be closing this website and my private practice at the end of this year.
Wishing everyone all they hope for themselves.
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, currently only offering supervision, consultancy and therapy online.
I have limited availability.
We find ourselves in extraordinary times. Transitioning to a new way of living can be exhausting and challenging.
I am committed to providing support in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
The first session online can be a strange, new experience for us all.
I have studied an 80 hour course in Online Counselling, in order to offer you as safe a space online as I do in my counselling rooms for face to face supervision.
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 how we can alleviate suffering. It seems the world we live in is fast and something comes up that we just can’t work out.
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
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.
I normally offer counselling in North Edinburgh, to clients who have experienced difficulties with :
