About us

We are a group of well trained counsellors, passionate about making effective counselling available to people. Most of us work as volunteers.

The team includes both experienced counsellors and trainees, all have additional life experience in a variety of settings, including; community, health service, education, and churches. All are members of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) or COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland). Our team leader Dr Tricia Kiehlmann, a former GP, has been running counselling services for the past 10 years.
