About Sonia

Counsellor Sonia Scott BA(HONS), MBACP

Glasgow West End Counsellor Sonia Scott

I am a Counsellor with over 20 years experience of working in the mental/emotional health field.

As an Integrative Therapist I use a variety of therapeutic approaches including Person Centred Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. However (as most of the research suggests) I would consider that the relationship between counsellor and client is usually more important than the type of approach used.

I have been practising as a counsellor since 2004 and have had my own private practice in the West End of Glasgow since 2008. I also offer training on Mindfulness both on an individual and group basis. I have extensive experience of working with a wide range of issues including emotional and relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, loss/ grief, self-esteem, bereavement and addictions. From my base in the West End of Glasgow I offer a supportive and comfortable environment where personal issues can be explored safely and without judgement.

I passionately believe that all individuals have the capacity to fulfil their potential and make positive choices/ changes in order to improve the quality of their lives.
