About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Tony and I am a qualified counsellor working in Forgue, which sits between Huntly, Turriff and Aberchirder, in West Aberdeenshire.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework. In other words, I follow a ‘code of conduct’ to ensure good practice and I am professionally accountable for my therapeutic work.
I work ‘integratively’ which means I am trained to work from a variety of theoretical approaches depending on the client and their individual difficulties. I integrate different theoretical approaches including person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), gestalt, existential, transactional analysis (TA) and transpersonal. I believe we are all unique individuals and that no ‘one way’ suits us all. I work with a variety of client issues and offer both short and long-term work.
I specialise in working with clients who experience anger, anxiety and stress. I also use creative therapies such as writing to express, understand and come to terms with feelings of depression, apathy and melancholia.
I have professional experience in teaching and research in the field of higher education My qualifications are centred around literature, creative writing, psychology, history and mythology and I offer creative therapies in these areas. I also offer walking and talking in a rural environment.
My practice is situated in a quiet, rural setting. I offer caring and confidential counselling within the safe space of your choice: either in a dedicated and comfortable log cabin or outside in a private, therapeutic garden (which is a work in progress). Free parking is provided on-site. I work Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
