Feeling stuck, confused or angry? Don't know which direction to take? Thinking of trying counselling? At Cannongate Counselling we provide an impartial, confidential and non-judgemental setting where you are supported towards exploring what you feel, what you want and how you might get it.


In the course of our lives we experience events that can cause us pain and difficulty. Friends and family can be a great source of support but inevitably they will have their own particular perspective which may not be helpful. Sometimes we feel we don't want to involve people we know and consequently can feel very alone with our problems.

At such points it can be useful to get professional, unbiased support... not only to help you deal with the difficulty, but also to help you identify strengths you never knew you had! Most people discover that they emerge from their crisis stronger and more resourceful.We can help you with a range of issues including the following:

  • anger management
  • loss & bereavement
  • depression/anxiety
  • mid-life issues
  • stress
  • relationship difficulties
  • low self-esteem
  • abuse issues


Conflict is a healthy part of being in relationship. But you may need professional help to avoid it being destructive or overwhelming and transform it into a tool for deeper intimacy. A healthy relationship allows each of you to be different without destroying it. Friends and family can be supportive in a crisis but inevitably they take sides and this can ultimately be unhelpful. In these times you may need the support of a professional and experienced person to help you work through these and other difficulties in a safe and confidential setting.

  • manage conflict
  • develop insight into the cause of the difficulty and understand each other
  • express your feelings in a safe setting
  • re-establish your couple-life independent of family and life pressures
  • re-energise your relationship
  • find new directions and deeper levels of intimacy
