About Barbara Matheson Counselling and Coaching

I am an experienced Edinburgh based Counsellor on the BACP Register accredited by the Department of Health, with experience of working with individuals and couples with a range of issues including relationship difficulties, couples counselling, depression, anxiety, low confidence and self esteem, anger managment, stress , abuse, bullying, loss ,bereavement, grief, separation, divorce , infertility and miscarriage

My counselling approach offers you a safe space to explore what’s making your life difficult at the moment and the opportunity to explore ways of making positive change. I offer a non judgemental , caring therapeutic relationship based on trust and understanding, a place to just be yourself , to be hesrd and taken seriously , but not told what to do.

I see individuals and couples in a private comfortable counselling room in the South Side Centre on Causewayside .There is metered parking in the surrounding streets and bus stops nearby.

I tailor my approach to each client and draw from my knowledge and experience of person centred practice, stress management and coaching psychology.

I also offer online counselling sessions via Skype video for UK or overseas clients.

I have face to face daytime and evening appointments available and occasional Saturday mornings.

If you’re not sure whether I’m the right counsellor for you, or even if counselling is the right approach for you, I can call you for an informal chat or I offer a low cost 30 minute appointment for us to meet to discuss what brings you and how we might work together.
