Meet our therapists who work with individual clients

My name is Jaynie Boyce. I am a qualified counsellor using transactional analysis, working towards my psychotherapy qualification.

I am passionate about my work as a therapist, and I understand that sometimes in life we just need a helping hand to get through things that feel tough.

I use empathy and compassion to create a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space where we can explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world all have an impact on our day to day lives, and I’ll walk alongside you, helping you explore the past and the present and supporting you to find new ways of being in the world.

I am an individual member of UKATA & UKCP.

Hi my name is Stephanie and I am an integrative counsellor, tailoring my counselling style to the specific needs of the individual.

In my experience, what people carry into a therapeutic environment is unique and deeply personal to them. The way I work is through journeying together and discovering the root causes, as well as looking at ways to move through it in a meaningful way.

My interests lie in but are not limited to; addiction, repressed anger, communication breakdown, overwhelming emotions, eating disorders, anxiety, grief, loss, depression, low self-esteem and troubling life events.

I believe that by providing a safe and confidential space to discuss current struggles openly without judgment, can bring a sense of clarity to an often intense and lonely period. I believe that counselling along with a willingness to explore can restore hope to a situation that often feels hopeless for many of us.

Hi! My name is Lynsey and I am a qualified counsellor and member of BACP.

I am an integrative counsellor and will use different approaches from person centred, psychodynamic and CBT depending on your need and presenting issue.
I believe in creating a safe and nurturing environment where we can work together colaberively to work through your difficulties.
I find it extremely healing to revisit areas of the past that have caused trauma, however I beleive our hopes for our future also play a vital part in the therapeutic journey too.

I work with both children and adults and so I enjoy working creatively with clients to explore issues and tap into the subconscience.

I have a passion for inclusion and a heart to make counselling as accessible as possible. I am working towards level 3 BSL currently and have worked with clients of varying additional support needs.

I believe counselling to be deeply personal and naturally no two counselling journeys are ever the same which makes each journey beautiful and unique.

Hi, I’m Nicola, I’m a qualified integrative counsellor, registered with the BACP.

I work according to the needs of the individual and I’m committed to creating a safe, non-judgmental space for your voice to be heard. In this space we will work together to explore the issues that have brought you to counselling. My approach is strongly based in person centred, but I use approaches from other modalities if suited to helping you explore issues more clearly and deeply.

I have a particular interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which stems from the more traditional CBT. The techniques from ACT help you to learn about intense emotions you may be experiencing and to help find a different perspective of them. Having a new perspective helps you become more accepting to these emotions and to commit to making changes to behaviour and responses, so that they are no longer overwhelming.

Working with people and seeing them overcome obstacles and difficulties is what I have a heartfelt desire for. I have experience of working with people from differing backgrounds and have had varying challenges and difficulties to overcome. There is nothing more powerful than a person finding their voice and to see them grow as they use it more.

MairiMy name is Mairi, and I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, registered with BACP. My work with Paisley Counselling is all on-line.

I have experience of working with clients in private, charitable, and school settings. My approach is integrative, with a strong person-centred basis, which means I will use different modalities of counselling to best fit your personal needs and goals.

As well as working with adults, I have advanced training in counselling children and young people. Anxiety, depression, low mood, self-harming behaviours can have a hugely negative effect on all areas of a young person’s life, not to mention the potential effect on future opportunities. Children and young people often find it particularly hard to put their thoughts and feelings into words, and that is why working creatively with this age group is particularly helpful.

Other areas I have a particular interest in are chronic illness and anxiety.

My underpinning value is respect for every individual’s personal experience, and I am committed to meeting all my clients with openness, acceptance, and compassion whatever they may be going through. The therapeutic journey can be challenging and difficult at times, but the rewards can make it all worthwhile.

I am Louise Sinclair and I am a fully qualified counsellor and member of the BACP.

There may be many reasons to consider counselling including trying to work through difficult emotions, coping with bereavement or loss or living with the consequences of surviving trauma. I have a range of experience working with people who have faced many emotional challenges. I can support you to face these challenges and work through them. I am committed to working with you and the time we spend together will be focused on you and what you want to achieve.

I am passionate about helping people and believe in the difference counselling can make when we work together to process your experiences and feelings.
